To Every Product Its Own Story

Each and every product is distinct, and we believe that respecting this uniqueness is key to deliver quality work. Taking this mindset into account, we work with our customers to ensure a complete understanding of their needs, their vision, and the past and future of their particular project. Our reward is your success.

Amagumo Labs adheres to the Manifesto for Agile Software, putting strong emphasis on collective effort, collaboration and adaptability. Only by interaction can we conduct high-value projects, and create quality products.

Our Work Process, Step-By-Step

Product development at Amagumo Labs is conducted through flexible, agile methods, as we always tailor to youy needs. Here is a sample of our work process.

Project Kickoff

To successfully kickoff a project, we need to explore all the various needs, user expectations, as well as the project history itself, as it allows for deeper understanding of the product lifecycle. This phase allows our team to prime development and get ready to start production.

Conducting a discovery workshop allows for uncovering of the project's background, indentifying technical requirements, initial scope of work. We'll plan development cycles, deliverables and increments accordingly.

Product Development

This is, quite simply, where the magic happens and your project starts being brought to life. We'll work on your ideas, repeating phases over and over until completion. Agile methods allows us to plan efficiently for incremental development, delivering valuable additions with each production cycle. Key cycle elements include :

Cycle Planning

Work is planned for an interval – called a Sprint. Usualy, a Sprint will last 2 weeks, and in coordination with you, we plan feature development and implementation, in order for each Sprint to end in a delivery.

Valuable Sprint Delivery

Sprints are planned to divide development into smaller increments, so that progress can be ascertained, with each increment delivering a testable, completed piece of the final product.

Sprint Retrospective and Feedback

As honesty and transparency are key to our work process, giving and receiving feedback is of utmost importance. Each Sprint is also an occasion to change and adapt our methods and planning in order to meet needs and improve our cooperation together.
