It is an art to solve the business problems.
Project management plays a very important role in project success. Regardless the size, the worry of not finishing on time, within budget, and properly is very real one. Codegait Labs, always try to complete a successful project and the key is being organised and planning.
As like anything, it is very easy to break down a big task into small sprints. To make a project successful, the whole project development process will be separated into 5 following phase.
By following each phases properly, Codegait Labs ensures about the projects success with expected result.
This phase make sure that Codegait Labs is entirely sure of everything that clients has requested and that you have clear visual and crystal definitions of modules. After all as a client how can you measure the success if you do not know what the desired outcome is?
We as a professional company cover these questions in reference to your project.
- What features will be included and excluded?
- How the layout will be?
- List of third party APIs or SDK, if needed?
We welcome any valuable inputs that make this project better and effective. Wireframe and Sketch takes major roles.
We feel this phase most important part of the whole development process. It includes what to be done, when and by whom. All detailing must be done as to ensure nothing is missed. We also to a risk assessment with deep technical review to make sure that everything is feasible and 100% sure for the development. We cover these;
- What theme or design style we are going to follow?
- What kind of resources are required?
- Make sure that project is now divide in sprints.
- Milestone approach must be planned as per the sprint basis.
This phase define the success of project. The same time we also finish the review of any third party APIs and SDK to make sure about our decisions.
Now after proper planning, Codegait team start executing it. Our first priority is to stick with the designed plan as close as possible. In this phase we took advantage for different project management tools like Jira, Trello and Basecamp. We keep each stakeholders in loop for every sprint progress. Codegait make sure about these;
- How to manage the code repository and version controls?
- How the daily meetings are managed?
- What are the backlogs and when it will be done?
- How the test cases are managed and executed?
- Client instant feedbacks and suggestions.
Here, each stakeholder contributes his part of responsibility in a very active manner. The real project shape visible from this step.
This is a parallel activity to the execution phase. It ensures that we keep our vision align to the pre-planned activities and also address the changes what is necessary for project success. It defines these aspects;
- What are the changes request?
- How to achieve the additional task within a certain timeline?
This phase plays a critical role about the project timeline, cost and deployment plan. We suggest to be strict about the new change request and keep it for next cycle.
Once that the project is done, It is compulsory that Codegait team write different documents like closing report, final summary of the project. We also collect all the asset and documents that was used during the development cycle. For the future reference we cover these;
- User manual.
- Deployment documentation.
- Server configuration document
In this phase we handover all the source files with supported documents on client server or via any preferred repository like Github, Bitbucket or Google Drive.
This is a conceptual flow of what we do to deliver a successful project. Here we have not explained about our experiences and common sense of knowledge what is needed to make is working.
