Everyone needs a guide sometimes.
Especially CxOs navigating technically complex, high-stakes decisions. Depending on the challenge, we lead various assessments & reviews to guide key decisions whether around product strategy, architecture, performance, code health, team health, quality or DevOps and more.
We engage with our clients to help clarify and capture their requirements, unpacking pain points in a series of workshops towards some key outcomes – often resulting in a subset of detailed backlog of user stories, high-fidelity wireframes, creative mockups, timing/phasing considerations, suggested architecture and a recommended team structure. In some cases, our Scoping exercises go as far as to develop POCs (proof-of-concepts) around more complex challenges to validate our technical recommendations.
Team & Process Reviews
Our team enjoys providing insight and recommendations into the health of a given team and their process, considering a number of facets from SCRUM/Agile maturity and adoption to branching strategy, from pull-request health to team skill gaps, from BA quality, story definition and estimation reliability to QA process and definition-of-done.
QA Automation Reviews
Our QA team, equipped in both Functional and Automation disciplines, enjoys engaging alongside BA, Dev & QA teams alike to unpack and improve all aspects of our client’s QA challenge often advancing their processes, tools, and environments while improving maturity in test case management, regression packs and importantly assessing overall readiness and route to Automation.
Architecture & Code Reviews
Our team engages to provide insight and recommendations into the structure, security, performance, testability, extend-ability and suitability of a given architecture, from the coded solution and design patterns used, to 3rd party components and release pipeline, to guide technical decision-making around complex refactors, state of technical debt, and/or feasibility for rebuilds
