How the Process Works?

We have been successfully delivered over 250+ products on-time and within budget for startups, entrepreneurs, businesses and large enterprises.

Initial Discovery
Assessment
Deep Dive
  • We discuss your project requirements over a couple of calls or It will be meetings and assess what you already have.
  • If we feel that the requirements are enough for us to provide you with a tentative cost/effort estimate - we go down that route. Otherwise, we recommend that you go through our Agile Discovery Workshop to get you development ready.

Develop
Detailed Discovery
Design
Development & QA
UAT
  • We start off with doing a detailed discovery as a first milestone, where we revisit the initial requirements and make them more detailed (user stories, wire-frames, non-functional requirements).
  • On the basis of this, we draft a statement of work and provide a detailed project & payment plan.
  • The remaining milestones are about delivering the scope of work defined during detailed discovery.
Go Live
Pilot
Support & Transition
  • Once the product has gone through the User Acceptance Testing stage, we successfully launch it while providing ongoing support & maintenance during the Pilot phase.
  • After that, we can either transition everything to your team or move to a monthly Support & Maintenance contract.

Why we Recommend It

It's the first step to building a successful and awesome tech product. It builds tremendous confidence when moving on to the development phase.

Reduce Cost

ADW is the best way to reduce inflated and superficial development costs. Our goal is to arrive at the most critical features that add direct business value and get rid of the fat.

Speed & Agility

We have structured this workshop in a way to ensure that we gather and document an in-depth understanding of your product in the shortest time possible.

Mitigate Risk

During the workshop, we help you identify problem areas and any technical challenges. The goal is to make sure that any high-risk items are identified and dealt early-on.

Best way to prepare for development

There is no doubt that 90% of software projects often fail in time, cost or scope. Gathering requirements with ADW is our way of addressing this problem and we have been pretty successful with it.

Specialized Experts

We’ve helped launch hundreds of products and our team has been doing this for nearly 15 years. We bring experts to the table and our goal is to make you as educated as possible before making important decisions.

Stakeholders Involvement

All concerned stakeholders of the product are involved in the process from day one. This way businesses get to build a product that does end up getting used.

Frequently Asked Questions

We provide Agile Discovery Workshop as an independent service. Although it’s a crucial first step for successful development, it doesn’t bind you to enter into development with us. However, we are confident that our great value addition during the workshop will compel you to take the development forward with us.

We charge a minimal fee for the workshop based on the average costs that we typically incur during the extensive process. Usually, 8-10 people are working behind the scenes to assess the feasibility of your idea. The only benefit we get from this is the ability to better understand your needs and deliver a desirable end product.

Code District has a team of Product strategist/Discovery Lead, UI/UX experts, Solution Architects, and Engineers working closely with your top management, IT personnel, and end-users.

As tempting as it may sound to you, it is usually not the wise thing to do. ADW allows for a deeper understanding of your product idea, what you tend to achieve with it, and its technical feasibility

It’s the cornerstone of a successful collaboration between you and your technical partner for the duration of the project. By skipping this crucial step you might be setting your project up for failure from the very start

Conducting a comprehensive workshop is paramount to successful product development and delivery because mostly the client is uncertain of what he expects the finished product to accomplish.

Laying down key success parameters and indicators early on eliminate the risk of failure and ultimately saves both time and money.
