We live in a world filled with uncertainty. Analytics and software development projects that aren't engineered for uncertainty are destined to fail. It takes a unique mindset and perspective to navigate these difficult times. This is where DEVHAWK's implementation of Agile and Lean practices provides massive benefits to our clients and results in huge success for our projects.
By breaking features into a list of prioritized component parts, we are able to iteratively deploy analytics capabilities while relying on close collaboration with our awesome customers. This produces a continuous loop of feedback, prioritized value, and implemented capability. Unlike large consulting firms, we structure contracts for hourly or phase based delivery with scope that can change over time. This approach works best for small and mid-sized clients that aren't exactly sure what the end result looks like at the beginning of the project.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the level of chaos in the world, just know that you can embrace the chaos with a loose framework and close collaboration to still deliver value. Companies that embrace this approach now will be best suited for whatever comes next.
