Agile Project Management

Metaspatial applies agile management methods to implement sustainable spatial solutions. We respect your organizational structures and help to protect your investment. A typical implementation cycles through several phases, each of which can be iterated:

  • User Requirements
  • User Stories (iterate)
  • Drafting Work Packages (iterate)
  • Prototyping (iterate)
  • Implementation (iterate)
  • Quality assessment (iterate)
  • Production

Iterative cycles get your team up to speed effectively. Your staff will love to work this way, even if unfamiliar with agile methodologies. You will thoroughly understand the internal workings of software projects and learn how to get your implementation ready within schedule.
