Methodology

We work iteratively with 2 weeks sprints where deliveries are based on prioritized tasks from a product backlog. Together with Flokk, we detail and make necessary clarifications of requirements and opportunities that appear along the way. One goal is to not let "the plan stand in the way of what's right to do" and everyone in the team challenges one another to ensure we deliver the highest value first. The team is working at a fixed rate and capacity with skilled architects, product specialists and front-end developers from the Krakow office.
