Product outsourcing – How to save yourself from the embarrasments!
How to save yourself from the embarrassments!
Anand Narayanan, Co-founder of Code Brahma
Have Stand up calls in the morning. Talk about the
progress made the previous day.
Make sure you get a brief about what your
development team is going to be working on that day.
STAND UP CALLS
Use a Project management tool. Just any. It’s
just a better way to Capture. Organize. Track.
Unstructured Communication = Hallucination
PROJECT MANAGEMENT: TOOL = STRUCTURE
Agile methodology is all about iterating.
Iteration comes from feedback.
Give feedback. Capture it on a tool.
GIVE FEEDBACK. SOON. OFTEN
The status of every user story should be
available in your project management tool.
Started -> Finished -> Delivered ->
Review daily. Quick review Quick Delivery
EVERY STORY NEEDS AN ENDING!
Not having urgency leads to procrastination.
Launch fast. Escape the guilt of ‘perfecting as a
way of avoid customer scrutiny!’
CREATE & SUSTAIN URGENCY
If you understand code, review code regularly
in the early stages.
Test Driven Development is one of first
initiatives you’d have to adopt!
OPTIMIZE FOR QUALITY
Building a product is not a discrete one step activity. It’s just the beginning of a
long conversation with your customer base!
Think beyond the first release. Think about continuous investment in
engineering and build capacity to manage that process!
REMEMBER - LAUNCH IS JUST WHERE YOU START!
