Ignition is our specially designed 2 day workshop created to help organisations align their software development aspirations with business objectives for new app development projects.
It is for greenfield projects. For projects already in progress please head to our Amplitude service.
We created the workshop because we realised that when business leaders set out to start a new project the thing they need the most is clarity!
So we designed the workshop to take them through 4 key stages;
It is a workshop package which we do at our office in Reading for organizations looking to start new digital projects for web and mobile solutions.
It is designed to be a standalone offering which delegates can use to research and plan their new projects. The outcome can either be used to engage Logic Room or to engage another software consultancy.
We typically propose 2 days for projects that are estimated to last 6 months dependent on complexity.
At the end the client will receive a 2 page ‘key findings’ summary of our findings so that they can proceed to the next step of their project with a clear vision of what they want and how they can achieve it.
It is a 4 stage process…
In this first step we seek to establish what types of customers you are solving problems for, why they would want to use your product how adept your organization is at solving this type of problem.
We assess how your business objectives fit in with your transformation goals.
We establish who is responsible for delivering the project and who the stakeholders are.
More specifically, we look at roles and responsibilities. We will tie these roles back to agile and lean manufacturing using principles such as ‘prioritization’ and ‘limiting work in progress’ to establish if your project will be efficient.
Some projects are simpler and more readily understood, some not so. We decide how agile we need to be!
This is the final and largest part of the workshop.
We will use the very latest techniques in ‘design thinking’ to work as a team to decide which features will actually help you achieve your business objectives.
We will follow a strategic and creative planning process called ‘impact mapping’* to identify what needs to be built and how in order to help you reach your business goal.
We will mock up simple wireframes and discuss complexity. We will do some initial estimation so you can get a clear idea of how much your new project will cost.
I have a new digital project can you help? Yes, ignition is designed for new greenfield projects. We will get you started on your new journey!
Can you work with my team? Yes, typically our clients have an internal team. We are happy to run the workshop with your internal team. But if your project is already started we recommend you look at Amplitude on our services page.
Do you produce design work from ignition? Whilst we do include a designer to help with the estimation we do not provide design as part of ignition unless you pay extra. Design and Development are extremely time consuming activities so there would be little point in doing them individually.
