Our Approach Explained

Just about every software development company says they're “agile” today. We’re a bit different in that we’ve been agile innovators since the beginning. We do agile how it was meant to be done, in a way that provides you with the optimal collaborative experience.

We use our own agile approach honed by experience. That approach is significantly different from one dividing work into waterfall steps which need to be finished before moving on to the next one. What we believe you need is a partner who collaborates well, and whom you can count on to work with you to create a system you and your users will love.

Our Approach

Sustainable software assets are created through collaboration with our partners facilitated by our proven approach. Our experience gives you the opportunity to dive into your software project with confidence. Our approach ensures that you get an early ROI, and a long-term solution. 

Expertise Amplication

Through our Discover and Explore phases, we learn your business deeply in order to codify your expertise into software that delivers what you actually need, even if that can’t be defined at the beginning. 

Iterative Value

Our approach is structured to provide you with a fast return on your investment, while creating a sustainable foundation that can grow with your company. After your first release, you can easily add sophistication incrementally 

Process Scaling

We’re not just order takers in software. We focus on your competitive advantage so what we build together ultimately fits your business perfectly. Emphasizing your process first and software second ensures value in the long-term, with a partnership that supports your software asset.

RoleModel stood out in our selection process because of their development methodology. They come out of the XP (extreme programming) tradition, and we very much appreciated their depth of experience and the ways in which they've evolved this approach over the years.
