Open and Honest Communication Results in Successful Projects
Ask those who have failed at software outsourcing. The failure can likely be attributed to poor communication. A thorough initial evaluation of your potential partner and comprehensive project setup will help everyone achieve success in the outsourcing partnership. Past challenges have helped us create a successful system that enables us circumvent communication issues.
As a true extension of your team, KIO IT SOLUTIONS strives to facilitate clear visibility to you. To that end, KIO has designed highly effective communication processes, configuration management and issue tracking systems. Our meeting rooms are equipped with the most modern communication facilities and infrastructure that include: Cisco communications, Microsoft Lync, TeamViewer and video Skype.
“Scrum How” Training for Clients
Today’s dynamic learning, knowledge management, and decision-making styles differ tremendously from those of 20 years ago. The amount of data in the high tech environment is overwhelming, making the shift toward flexible, Agile methodologies absolutely necessary. Businesses and individuals look for simple and effective solutions to their needs. The goal of the hands-on “Scrum How” training is to reveal the most efficient methods in a short time.
The Scrum How training includes: active teamwork; an Agile myths-busting session; a practical walk-through of all roles, concepts, meetings, and documents used in Scrum; and typical Scrum risks and issues. Attendees learn how to conduct standup meetings, set well-defined goals, assess scope of work, work in short iterations, collect data from the team, encourage idea generation, and more.
Strong Project Management
To solve any project related issue that may arise in the process, a project manager is appointed from Day 1 to work directly with the client. Project Manager responsibilities include initial project planning, team management, early project risks definition / elimination and act as an escalation point for the client. All projects are ultimately coordinated under the KIO IT SOLUTIONS CTO.
Constant Quality Monitoring
At KIO IT SOLUTIONS our dedicated Quality Assurance professionals oversee every project from start to finish. Redmine is our preferred defect-tracking system for tracking issues. QA experts work in close contact with, but independent from, the development team. KIO IT SOLUTIONS’s constant feedback loop and periodic retrospective meetings help us to constantly improve our methodology to meet and exceed customer expectations.
