Why do we work agile?

Nothing is more dynamic than the digital business world. Framework conditions and requirements can change over the course of the project, and we want to respond to this individually. That's why it's important to us to no longer work with fixed price quotes.

The agile way of working enables us to respond to changing conditions - and to do so quickly. In this way, we are still flexible after the project has started and leave room for innovative products with added value for our customers and ourselves.

What is an agile manifesto?

The agile manifesto describes the framework of the agile approach. We have compiled the most important points for us here for you.

Spoken in numbers

We have not been writing fixed-price offers for a long time. For these, long specifications are written in which all requirements are compiled. These specifications must be adhered to, as the price is fixed.

This does not apply to Agil: The offer includes a daily rate as well as an offer appendix in the form of a backlog with the roughly defined tasks and time estimates. Billing is usually monthly and includes exactly the time we needed for the implementation - no more and no less.

The backlog differentiates between must/should/can requirements. This enables a go live with the MVP, the Minimum Viable Product (with all must-have requirements), and further development can be done individually. During development, the backlog is constantly refined and adapted, so it is just as agile as the whole way of working. At the same time, the backlog is in no way fixed. Items can be added or removed at any time, in consultation with our customers.

This saves us long test phases and waiting times for the completion of the product. The employees and customers can have their say and tell us where the shoe pinches the most. This is exactly the point where we continue to work.

The cooperation

Working agile means: We hear each other more often.

In short sections (also called sprints) we develop finished partial products, which are then presented to you. This ensures that we are always on the right track.

In agile projects, customers can simply have their say, have their say and check more often. This avoids working at cross purposes.
