For us, Agile is not an industry buzzword. Agile is what we live by. Why do we value it so much?
Some say using Jira means you’re Agile. Bullshit! Jira is just a tool. It doesn’t make you anything. It can help. It can harm. It so happens it usually hurts the projects. But we made Jira become our engineering secret weapon.
Our engineers don’t spend time on Jira. They spend time on delivering value. Yet, our Jira lets us track the project’s progress in real-time. Things done, things in progress, things that are pending - the overview is one click away. We know exactly what’s happening in the project. We are ready to report to our clients. Or they can see it themselves on their dashboards.
Hire skilled engineers working across different disciplines. Guide them through the team building process. Let them decide on the name of their Squad.
Strengthen their soft skills. Teach them how to give and receive feedback, brainstorm, make collective decisions. Let them find the best way to work on the project.
Watch how the culture of partnership grows among them. Coach the team when and where necessary.
Train them in SquadTec’s project management style. Make sure all Squad members feel equally responsible for the project’s success. Clear any doubts and objections.
Observe the Squad dynamics. Be on a lookout for a leader material. Search for superb soft skills, self awareness, and the understanding of team building principles.
Introduce the Squad - engineering special forces - to the client. See them deliver value from the first sprint.
We don’t believe in one key to success. We believe in many factors contributing to excellent cooperation.
We trust and empower our engineers. They can be sure their opinions are heard. Our Squads are working as a unit to deliver the best results. Every member of a team is responsible for the project’s outcome.
Time management and planning are crucial for the timely delivery. We leave planning in the hands of our Squads. They know their capacity best.
Everyone in the Squad knows who is doing what. This way, the team is always in sync and working towards the final goal.
With our unique toolset, we can present the project forecasts in real-time. We can quickly identify problems and act accordingly.
Good planning, transparency, and real-time tracking make our projects predictable. You can be in full control of time and budget.
