Initial Phase
Preparation
This phase is mostly about communication and includes calls, personal meetings, and first estimations. While preparing we get information from the client about project goals and software requirement specification. Steps of Preparations.

Initial Phase
Discovery
We need to be on the same page with our client when we plan the web service development steps. That’s why we conduct a Discovery phase. We make it in person, so the team leaders can meet the client, get the information needed and clarify details.
This period is divided into 5 main stages:
Initiation
Discovery agreement sign-off.
Discovery agreement sign-off.
Agenda presentation, tools set up, detailed scheduling of activities and deliverables list polishing.
Execution
Workshops, Q&A sessions, discussions and deep subject area analysis that allow to create comprehensive pre-agreed documents including costs, timelines, and project roadmap.
Control
Discovery report preparation and presentation, meetings with CxO.
Development
Negotiating and setting up our future development approach.
The client gets access to our communication and tracking tools. Starting from the Discovery phase, he becomes an important and active part of the development team.
After creating precise estimations we start composing the developing team, provide it with a precise scope of work and plan a few nearest sprints.
