1. Project management methodology
As for project management, Vox Teneo takes its cue from PMI methodology (certification by the PMI Institute). This methodology is tailored to the size of the project and the teams working on it. These standards are internationally recognised and seen in many sectors and professions as indispensable references for project management.
This stage involves establishing a simple project plan, consisting of:
- elements of perimeter definition,
- communication and reception procedures, and
- guarantee conditions.
Budget and planning management
Budget and planning are managed using the tools described below that enable continuous comparison, task by task, between work carried out and work estimated at the start.
Without getting involved in a complicated process, usually reserved for major projects, we assure risk management to avoid budget or planning overruns. Particular attention will be given to availability of programmers and measures are taken to ensure project continuity if a member of the development team drops out.
Regular meetings (normally weekly) enable you to follow the project’s progress and take the necessary decisions together. Each meeting takes the form of an update report, which will be the basis for implementing any decisions taken.
2. Development methodology
Vox Teneo puts great effort into applying the principles of “Agile” development methodologies, and one of them in particular: SCRUM. This methodology enables development to progress in successive stages.
- Scrum is an Agile process which can help produce the highest value of work in the shortest possible time.
- A functioning end product is produced during the “sprint” (every 2 to 4 weeks).
- The work defines the priorities.
- The team organises itself to determine the best way of producing the most urgent requirements.
- At the end of every sprint, everyone can see the current product working and decide whether to deliver it as it is or to carry on improving it over another sprint.
