Summarized, the model takes the following steps: Set the project perspective, understand and determine the problem, set objectives and a future vision, create solutions and finally implement.
The model starts with a specific problem. Before the start of a project, the problem is shortly examined for previous solutions and what existing knowledge can be taken into the project. The outcome of the model is a specific solution for the given problem.
The model is iterative, meaning that after setting the perspective, the phases can be walked through a couple of times. When needed, each phase on itself can be repeated. Because of this iterative way of working, the quality of a solution can be guaranteed.
The 5 phases of our process:
Set the stage
In this phase, the process, stakeholders, and requirements are reviewed to be able to successfully start the project. Everything is set to go!
Understand the Problem
In this phase, the problem will be thoroughly researched and searched after. Hereafter, the problem will be defined resulting into a problem statement.
Based on the problem statement, criteria, objectives and a vision for the future are set. These form the requirements for the desired solution.
Now that the strategic preferences are clear, solutions can be generated. In this phase, solutions will be ideated, chosen, developed and tested.
The project will be evaluated to its objectives and implemented with the focus on proper continuation. The result might also be that a new sprint in the model has to take place.
