Handling fundamental scope changes
Throughout the project, we had to manage radical changes in the scope, which fundamentally changed feature and development needs. We were able to handle this due to our agile approach, constant and honest communication with the client and by doing weekly sprints: weekly planning, design review, product demos, and delivery.
Complying with the IT security
The new application had to be compliant with the IT security requirements which also changed along with the scope and were not too easy to pass in the insurance industry. We needed to be smart and creative to find workarounds that we could turn to our advantage. We worked closely with the NN IT security, so we could understand the regulations and the IT team could have a clear picture of the technical needs.
Aligning agile methods to the corporate workflows
Creating protect.me was based on agile methods, which needed to fit into a strict, regulated and slow corporate workflow. We did our best to support the Protect.me team carry through the project in the multinational environment, by providing semi-ready solutions, taking over tasks and always looking for workarounds for blocker situations.
WORKING WITH DIGITAL NATIVES
What I loved the most about working with Digital Natives is that we collaborated on every level, joined forces to find the best solution for every difficulty, and we could count on their expertise. As a result, we established an effective partnership enabling us to build the ideal version of every idea.
