Communication at all Levels Or Communicate beyond boundaries
Focus on Quality Communication is one of the five important pillars of Technosoft development methodologies. We make sure that quality communication occurs at all levels during the life of a project:
Our engineers are given extensive requirement elicitation training. We realize that if TS-Client communication at this level fails, the whole project fails.
This is our communication with the client. We make sure that we convey what we understood and what we plan to build.
We use industry standard techniques to illustrate our understanding of your requirements. All our engineers are adept in using all types of UML diagrams. We create use cases, flow charts, state charts, sequence diagrams etc frequently during all phases of software development but heavily in the specification document.
You entrust us with your strategically important applications and we make sure that the design of these applications is according to your needs. Whether you are a technically savvy client or a complete business oriented company, we will make sure that we communicate and include you in application design.
Unknowns and Assumptions:
Experienced Project managers will attest to the frustration that is caused when a software developer assumes too much and creates a solution missing the mark or worst totally opposite what needed to be built. We make sure that as the project unfolds and unknowns are discovered, we communicate properly to clients and do not make important decisions based on our assumptions.
Project Tracking and Oversight:
We Project managers are usually afraid of 90% done syndrome here while working with on-site developers, let alone offshore. On-site, at least we can bug the software engineer to pull some info but with offshore, how can we know the true status.
What if I get notified of a delay in project delivery few weeks before the launch of a 12-month long project?
We understand all these fears. We have been there and know these issues.
With Technosoft, you will get a detailed WBS, Work Breakdown Structure, (the effort estimate) and a project schedule (delivery estimate) tied with WBS right after requirement specifications are finalized.
We will be sending a weekly status report with details of how long was estimated for the task and how long it actually took.
You will know as the project progresses, how the project unfolds. There are no mysteries, no hidden crazy schedules, and no surprises.
You will know about project status as much/less you want. We make sure that we communicate effectively and well in advance so you know project directions.
Inter Team Communication:
We believe that the division of labor is one enemy of communication in software teams. Yes, a designer needs to be designing and coder needs to code. But we believe that communication needs to flow to everyone on the software development team. Designing software solutions is a very delicate and daunting task. 180 degrees communication flow is what is needed to cover not thought of aspects of software.
Project Completion Satisfaction Communication:
With all these measures for communication, we make sure that:
- We develop your application based on your vision.
- You know where we are at every stage of development.
- And that under the hood that code is designed to correct the first time and no expensive bandages are applied after the fact due to miscommunication.
