Free Discovery Session
Request a Free Project Discovery Session
Whether your project is for a large scale enterprise system or a startup app, it is important that you and your team include a discovery phase in your software development plan because miscommunication, misunderstandings or lack of critical information can lead to missed deadlines, exceeded budgets, unexpected risks, etc. It is crucial that everyone involved in the project is able to provide their input early and understand both the vision and the technology.
The main purpose of the Project Discovery Session is to get the idea of the digital product, understand the “pain” and align the priorities on all levels. The goal is to get all stakeholders aligned, point out the main issue and identify what you are going to work on and how. This session is not about tasks, it is about understanding the final destination, the impact on the business, the “why”. The discovery session allows stakeholders to start talking the same language and set the common goal and vision.
As a result of the session, we prepare an audit report. It is about 2 to 3 pages document that states the issues of the project and some bullet points about what can be done to resolve them. We’ve seen a lot of issues in a lot of different industries and environments, so here is where our value starts to shine. We can easily propose the next steps and we know that this is exactly what the project needs. This is something we can already estimate and give an approximated budget. This is something business people can understand as they can see the impact and the potentially generated value.
Usually, the discovery process occurs after a contract is signed. But in Apiumhub we are proposing it as a “free discovery session” prior to a formal proposal. This is our commitment for clients who hesitate to sign a long contract, and it’s a good way to build trustful relationships with the client before sharing the inner knowledge.
