Why software engineering matters

Why software engineering matters

Strategy
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] What Spotify, Criteo, Uber, Airbnb and Netflix have in common? Of course, they are young tech companies extremely successful in their fields. But beyond that, they have invested a lot in software engineering. Just like other great tech companies like Google, Facebook or Amazon. And they are very vocal about it: Google Developers, Spotify Labs, Facebook Engineering Blog, Criteo Labs (and many more), the engineering is clearly a primary concern. I believe that there is a trend here: for a tech startup to become a leader, it takes many things, among which good software crafting practices play major role. [siteorigin_widget class="WP_Widget_Media_Image"][/siteorigin_widget] You are an entrepreneur? An investor? A CTO? Here are some reasons why you should really focus on software engineering. First, let’s try to provide a…

Features
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] Ok fine, your team is agile. So you can cope with changes in the priority of one product thanks to Scrum. But how to cope with priority shifts among different products? With turnover?

Scrumboard … Sprint board !

Scrumboard … Sprint board !

Features
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] The sprint backlog is important: it is where the team life stands. If your team is not collocated it is not important, it is vital. You need it to be clear, collaborative, persistent, customizable yet story focused. That is the job of the sprint board.

Scrumboard Request management

Features
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] Consistency is key to product adoption. Users are surrounded with interfaces and only the most consistent, appealing, intuitive and efficient products stay alive. What is required to reach it? What you don't need is to flood your backlog with the ideas of your stakeholders, usually in form of solution and potentially orthogonal to your product. What you need is focus and creativity to identify the underlying problem and then correctly integrate a functional solution into a new feature that will end up in a valuable use case for your users. What you need is to keep control of what your product does and how it does it. How? Give a try to request management [siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Features_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_PostCarousel_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget]

Scrumboard automatic roadmap

Scrumboard automatic roadmap

Features
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] Can you provide a roadmap for your product? That is a question that we get a lot when introducing agile. As a customer, a manager, a sales person, you are certainly interested in target dates. In Scrum there is no guarantee that a given feature will be released at a given date.  We always welcome changes in the product backlog to accomodate priority shift. But at any moment you can provide the current target date of a given story. This is the purpose of the automatic roadmap feature.

Features
[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Headline_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget][siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_SocialMediaButtons_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] Yes, it is difficult to setup an environment where everyone has a chance to speak freely: the shy, the young, the expert, the one on the phone, the grumpy ... Yes,  a large part of Scrum benefits comes from the level of collaboration in the self-organized teams. So how to cope with this dichotomy?
