OUR DEVELOPMENT METHODOLOGY

TEI uses Agile methodologies.

The Agile approach allows our team the flexibility to swiftly handle changes in direction during the life of the project while providing quality results. We can integrate user feedback often and early in the development process allowing users the interaction with the product long before the development is finalized.

Our Agile Approach

With the Agile methodology, the development is split into multiple standalone applications or deployments that will make up the final system which delivers a fully working system in stages, per need, or agreed cycle.

Flexible Management

We are committed to delivering the desired balance between project management and technical assistance. We work to identify the project management areas of focus so that the majority of the project hours remain available for the actual support and enhancements. Our adjustable management approach and TEI’s proven development approach allows our team the flexibility to swiftly handle changes in direction during the life of this project while maintaining quality results.

A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH

Our approach to providing services is to be inclusive of all project stakeholders from beginning to project end. 

Each project is a partnership with our clients with team-oriented interaction at all levels, with a constant eye on results. This collaborative process, especially during the design, is key to project success. When TEI meets with clients, we know our client is the subject matter expert and value their input greatly.

Our version of project management.

Our approach to project management is a blended management approach consisting of our Project Manager, Database Administrator/Software Architect, and our lead Business Analyst. The project management team collaborates and works together to manage the project and development team.

TEI references the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) framework to divide the project into phases and processes to provide better management and control over the project. TEI customizes the steps in the PMBOK framework to meet the requirements and conditions of each project.
