01

The Definition Sprint

When we onboard a product we start with a 4 to 6 weeks time-bound exercise to get everyone on the same page and drive clarity on what we are building and who we are building for.

  • Get a first hand understanding of the product
  • Conduct competitor feature & market positioning analysis
  • Discuss the problems, opportunities, and vision with the stakeholders
  • Create the target persona and plot the product market positioning
  • Build a high level yearly and quarterly product roadmap with feature prioritization

02

The Design Sprint

Now that we understand what we are building, who we are building for, our target persona, and market positioning, we spend 2 to 4 weeks to update and standardize our branding guidelines and create an application design framework to be implemented in the next 12 to 18 months.

  • Deeper drive into understanding the target audience
  • Analyzing existing designs and any improvements
  • Creating the UI style guide and platform theme

03

Recurring Product Development & Delivery Sprints

Now that we understand what we are building, who we are building for, our target persona, and market positioning, we spend 2 to 4 weeks to update and standardize our branding guidelines and create an application design framework for the next 12 to 18 months. Once the product roadmap is plotted out, customer understood, and design framework identified, we move to the shipping code!

  • Deeper drive into understanding the target audience
  • Daily Jira & Slack Updates and Perform Demos
  • Detail the Requirements for Next Sprint
