COGNIRA-AGILE METHODOLOGY

Cognira's unique agile implementation methodology that focuses on iterations refinement of requirement and delivering value

Cognira’s hybrid approach to implementation is a blend of waterfall and standard agile methodologies. We start with an overall scope and design, working through key processes and metrics for each major processThen we commence with build iterations. For each of these areas we build and review with users to ensure we have addressed the key needs of the users. The benefits we see to this are that scope and budget are more defined than standard agile, but you mitigate the waterfall risk of design paralysis and the great divide of time between design and interacting with the product, where issues can be identified too late in the project.

  • No lengthy design and specification phase, solving problems by thinking differently.

  • Define high level goals, priorities, and working roadmap, Lowering implementation risks.

  • Close ties to business users, continuous delivery and feedback (No bad surprises!) and more value to the business.

  • Learn, Refine, Improve and builds in change management. Move swiftly, learn quickly, iterate to value.
