There are the several approaches to software development, using in different companies according to their work’s specific:
Would you describe those ones we use? Let’s see. These are professional Waterfall, Agile and Scrum. Following main principles, they are different at some point.
When using the waterfall methodology, each of these stages is a separate software development process, and usually ends before the next one. All needs must be considered and approved by the customer before the start of the design.
At an early stage, developers and customers agree on what tasks will be delivered at an early stage in the project development lifecycle. This simplifies planning and designing.
It is also easier to measure progress since the entire amount of work has already been planned.
With the exception of preparatory, organizational work, reviews, approvals, status meetings, etc., the presence of the client is strictly not required.
Finally, the software can be developed completely and more thoroughly, based on a more fundamental understanding of all software products. Step-by-step effect which can occur when the code is built in addition.
Here are some of the problems that you may encounter:
potential drawback of developing a pure
that the customer will be dissatisfied with their supplied software
product. Since all results are based on documented requirements, the
client may not see what will be delivered until it is completed. By
this time can be complex (and
Waterfall is a methodology used for a long time. And in some cases –
effectively. At the same time, in a number of projects that approach
is not appropriate in its pure form. Based on comments from
representatives of various companies, we can conclude that the
"waterfall" has the right to live in modern projects. But
its use is justified. If the requirements are not exactly changed by
the time the project is ready.
method is a set of iterative-incremental approaches to project
management. The essence of the method is a separation of little
projects (tasks), which folding soon in one project.
This is one of the most effective working approaches
HOW IS AGILE ACTING?
An Agile method is a flexible development approach. We may talk about it like a vision of a project development also. Quite often, during the process of creating any product, specialists have responsibilities for their functions according to each project. The presented approach makes it possible to avoid a human factor, to suppress an influence of personal relations between team members. Thereby, the responsibilities must be distributed in the right way.
Besides, we grant a commercial software development. However, it is necessary to mention that for state institutions and corporations the legislative requirements and work rules that are documented in job descriptions serve as an obstacle. Therefore, a slightly different situation is observed here.
WHY IS AN AGILE EFFECTIVE FOR US?
we know, planning time helps to form the right time frame and prices.
It is a task list of data and deadlines. It means a project divided
into the timepieces. It is called sprints.
Each of them lasts
Even when a project starts, it doesn’t need to have
the agreed functions. A customer should be able to add changes. An
Agile divides the project into many parts that must be finished by
the deadline. Since
steps (sprints) finished, it must be demonstrated and UAC-tests. Then
NEXT, LET'S CONSIDER WHAT IS SCRUM.
This approach includes the characteristics of a classical process and a flexibility in project management of software development. Focusing on the laws of Agile, Scrum creates a backlog. Further, user history is prioritized by the owner of the product - the intermediary between the customer and the team or the user history is decomposed.
A basic structure of the Scrum processes consists of the organization of the backlog, drafting of the sprint plan, daily meetings, meetings of delivery of Sprint's results, and its retrospective. To understand how all the stages work, they want to talk more about them, to reach the essence of the Scrum technique.
So, first of all, at the beginning of Sprint planning, we meet to organize a backlog. This meeting can be compared with traditional planning in project management. It is held before each sprint. It analyzes what has already been done on the project, what needs to be done, and consideration of the plan for further action. The owner of the product determines the priority and the most important goals to be implemented.

After the main tasks are formed, a team decides what must be done during a future iteration, how to achieve the goal. This stage is made at the start of an iteration, after a meeting on the ordering of the project.

in mind, in case of the company has non-effective Scrum methodology,
it has to invite a Scrum Master. This is some kind of moderator
of Scrum processes. This is who usually takes part in key meetings of
the team and doesn’t make the decisions about a backlog and
user-story in the sprint. To lead the work
THE STRONG SCRUM SUITS
Also, this methodology is appropriate for an experienced
team in their sphere of activities. A frequent communication inside
between the team members allows getting help and support each other.
At the time of every iteration, the developers always implement and
test new functions. Then they delete unclaimed ones to the users.
Scrum lets “make the mistakes fast”.
THE WEAK SCRUM POINTS
There we can allocate: this technology is very demanding to a team developing a concrete project. On the one side, the command must be not so big. On the other side, it should have a lot of features. It means each team-player ought to be good in several fields of activity, in particular, QA and business-analysis. That’s why we try to choose every team member carefully.
Besides, everyone is “a team player”, responsible for their time-management and personal results. Their own progress has a serious impact on the whole team of developers, QA, designers, and programmers. Make decisions on effective work, create a full-fledged product that will meet all market requirements, for each project a team led by the PM-project manager is selected. It’s a leader whose “word is a law”. A PM manages employees and watches for achieving the goals. All the process’s ends depend on a PM.
managers are unique people as knowing everything. They inspired by
answering questions: “For what?”, “When?”, “Why?”,
“How?”, and so communicate. They almost do not have the right to
make a mistake, because every decision has an impact on the final
issue. The main PM’s task is saving the quality of the project,
managing it, check the plan and deadlines. That is to say,
always assess every possible risk and offers decisions. We keep tabs
on the plan for the purpose of the product’s quality. Project
management is a hard work. An employee
We guide by our slogan. A key importance for clients is a permanent side-to-side communication, qualitative working approach.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE PERFECT PM?
What’re the skills must be improving to lead the project (and the company) to the high? First of all, a PM needs to be able to convey information correctly and recognize his idea at the start. Simply saying, “turn into a client”. Communication skills are the key. With the aim to hear each other, a PM must understand the IT-field to give the information to a team, create the right tasks, be good at the analysis. Abilities to see the essence of the matter and the essence of the problem by all means.
the technical understanding of the development of their products is
necessary. Yeah, it means a PM is a developer a little bit, a QA,
manager, and just forceful and stress-resistant
Furthermore, be able to keep client’s calm. People often say a project manager should be a former developer. This isn’t true many times. Some developers go to managers and soon becomes a PM. A project manager is a more managerial position than others in the direction of multitasking. Must have is a skill to complete the few employee’s work.
Avoiding technical problems with client’s communication, a PM has to use a lot of messengers and mail-clients. Thus, to follow each of them, be flexible to organize own working time. Those ones even not at all the abilities and strengths of a good PM.
This person guides of actual project’s documentation. It describes all the technical requirements that were agreed upon between team/customer. The task of the PM is to distribute responsibilities correctly among the members of the whole team. Therefore, a project manager is a vitally important position which requires organization and ability to fully control the project and work on it. One of the key steps is the proper timing of the project in which PM also takes part. In a word, the so-called "investigate" is conducted.
Our task is to understand the client's idea, implement it, make it work and clearly realize, what should receive a product owner after the completion of development. Thus, to get a quality and competitive product.
As in any other case, each project, in one way or another, is exposed to risks. The most serious of those that can arise is an incorrect evaluation as to the complexity of performing all tasks related to the project implementation. And also, with an understanding of the project itself, its features.
our working process we use the advanced technologies, such as Python,
services and application programming interfaces: Active
So, after the project has passed the development stages, got a design and a corporate style, the testing process begins. The product is tested for load, regression, and security (later about those ones). The finished product is transferred to a customer. Further, if necessary, puts it in public markets.
talked about how work processes within the team occur, how it is
organized in relation to each project, and what’s the role of a PM.
We showed how, in our opinion, it should be. Based on practical
experience, revealed the moments of work and the essence of the
project itself. After all, to become a good specialist, a PM has to
be able to do a lot and keep a hand on the pulse.
We adhere stated principles, thus, earning trust. We are sure that only by respecting a client and a quality teamwork for the result we come to success. Therefore, we are always ready to meet a client, creating a new product. In any niche. We have profitable offers and are ready to cooperate to satisfy any user.
