We know that for some people hardware devices plus Agile just doesn’t sum up. Agile may even feel a bit odd for hardware development, with all the tools and processes behind it. The problem is, hardware is often deprived of iterative development and therefore its release may be overwhelmingly stressful (and exciting for sure) for the company.
Communication is a key element of the majority of actions undertaken in both private and professional life. If we know how to do it efficiently in business, we are able to build a strong brand and gain the attention of our co-workers and – what is more important – our customers.
Starting a project with a new client is a lot like starting a relationship: you went on a few dates and you definitely like each other, but you are still distinct people with a different background and you have to be sure you agree on some fundamental things to make it last. Otherwise sooner or later these dissimilarities will haunt you and the beautiful thing you had together.
People make mistakes. No matter how accurate we are, no matter how much we try, when working on modern, complex applications misunderstandings and misconceptions are embedded into our daily work. The key to success is to make sure that we have skills and processes in place to detect and eliminate those as soon as possible. This is where the QA team comes in. Not only does the team care about catching and describing bugs, but also about making sure that all new features and stories are described in an understandable and meaningful way. This helps the project move forward smoothly, keeping both team and the customer happy and confident.
