Learn how the Baby Blue Digital team is working to be an Agile-friendly agency and how we are developing our project delivery model.
Below is a breakdown of all how Baby Blue Digital is developing our project delivery methods to ensure the highest quality work in the most reasonable delivery timeline.
You may have heard of the term “Agile” or “Agile Methodology”. In short, to be agile is to have an iterative approach to project management and software development that helps teams deliver value to their customers faster and with fewer headaches. Instead of betting everything on a “big bang” launch, an agile team delivers work in small, but consumable, increments. If you have not upskilled yourself on the agile methodology it is highly recommended you do so.
Hybrid Delivery From Baby Blue Digital.
Baby Blue Digital is a big supporter of Agile work structures and we would like our clients to understand how we deliver their projects and updates. We work in a Hybrid structure of “Kanban & Scrum”. This means that our projects are listed in a Kanban-like card system but are delivered on a “Sprint Like” schedule. We have outlined our sprint schedule below.
- Sprint 1: 17th October – 28th October
- Sprint 2: 31th October – 11th October
- Sprint 3: 14th October – 25th October
Above is an example of the first three sprint sessions from Baby Blue Digital. What this means is that work will be booked into a sprint and delivery will take place between those dates. This helps us manage client expectations and prevent unnecessary backlogs of work. This is reserved for standard updates and deliveries, emergency work and stand-alone projects will have their own timelines and delivery.
What about emergencies?
We understand that our clients may have emergency schedules or fixes for their digital products, and we treat these as separate from our day-to-day delivery schedule. We will work with our clients to best identify the issue and plan a solution accordingly.
A large portion of being Agile is being able to adapt to various situations while minimising the effect on clients and delivery. Below is a brief overview of how we will book different levels of work into our schedule.
- Standard Updates: Updates will be discussed with the client and added to the next available sprint.
- New Projects: Will be discussed with the client and a bespoke delivery timeline developed.
- Emergency Work: Will be identified with the client and booked in as soon as possible outside of standard delivery hours.
Our main goal is to deliver the highest quality products to our clients, and we’ll always use that as a guide when planning our schedule.
