Successful software projects start slowly. Rather than diving into coding — one of the most straightforward parts of a project — development teams and agencies should start every project with a thorough discovery phase.
“Discovery is key to minimizing the risks associated with software development projects,” says Bill Clerici, CEO and Partner at Kingsmen Software. “One of the most important aspects of this process is identifying the company’s business goals and how the software project will achieve them.”
It’s only when overarching business goals have been defined can work truly begin.
