Just after the project launch, the operational phase of the project will begin. The project manager can now set-up and Staff your project in 4 steps:
- 1 – Project kick-off
This is the official project launch. The project status will transition to “100% operational”!
In this phase, the Pentalog team will clarify, together with your team, all the operational details of the project (organization, communication, methodology, roles, and resources).
The project manager will also explain the ramp-up planning and the risks (along with the action plans to address them) associated to the project.
- 2 – The discovery phase
One of Pentalog’s most notable practices is to send part of the project team to your offices to become acquainted with your corporate culture. This will enable easier co-ordination and a smooth transition into operating procedures.
During this second step, the project manager will start to fund the resources needed for the project using the Pentalog cloud provisioning tools. He will also start to complete the product backlog.
- 3 – Starting up the initial sprint
The team is now complete and ready to start working on the project. This initial sprint is focused on implementation. The team will set up the development environment, perform integration testing, and do a complete project assessment. In other words, the team will learn how to work together in this new environment! They will also finish the backlog of the sprint 1.
The duration of the first sprint is likely to be different than the following sprints. It is important to spend some time setting up a solid framework to ensure a successful project!
- 4 – Cruising speed!
The project is on the rails. The sprints are moving forward and you will receive an operational version of your product at the end of each sprint until your product is completed.
Working with Pentalog helped us significantly, they responded really well to the urgency of the situation. After just one week we had found a qualified freelancer to undertake our mission. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the selection and administration process, so that the mission could run as smoothly as possible.
We were convinced by Pentalog’s approach: advice from a CTO to help us architect our solution, 2 freelancers and support to find funding. In addition, we were seduced by the price of courses but especially by the implementation time: 2 months instead of 5 or 6 months if we were on a development from scratch.
Working with Pentalog is very reassuring. As their CTO had worked with us on prior improvements to the app, I didn’t think twice about calling on them again when I found out that the first developer was unavailable. Four days later they had found someone equally competent and we didn’t have to worry about the admin side of things. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the mission from start to finish, to make sure it ran as smoothly as possible.
