The Appirio Way is our homegrown delivery methodology, providing a maximum positive impact to project outcomes. It is highly effective for delivering consulting engagements in a standardized and predictable way. Being "Hybrid agile" allows it to blend the best of iterative and predictive approaches, Waterfall and Agile, with specific checkpoints to ensure ongoing alignment with our client needs.
The Guiding Principles of the Appirio Way Methodology focus on:
- Maximum configuration – Minimum customization
- Keeping it simple
- Getting the data model right – close collaboration with client team for mapping and transformations; load real data early and often
- Getting creative on requirements – finding the most efficient way to accomplish the objective, minimize timeline, effort, and risk to the project
- Always driving user adoption – involve a set of core cross-functional users in iteration reviews
This approach allows us to rapidly evolve requirements and designs in a controlled manner while maximizing input from users and IT stakeholders. As the project moves through its lifecycle, frequent reviews and continued inputs from our clients take full advantage of the cloud-based nature of Salesforce.com, allowing us to deliver a robust CRM solution.
