Development Strategy
Sometimes requirements evolve and change. No problem. Our development strategy encourages planning, development, testing, and client review by modules -- thus allowing changes in an incremental fashion. No need to wait for the entire project to be completed before seeing the finished results. With the completion of each module, the functionality is demonstrated to the client, thus encouraging any changes as we go and thus eliminating the potential for major changes at the end of the project. This approach encourages a rapid response to change and results in accelerated, agile development.
