Dive into the Agile method @Tiama

Aren’t you tired of stacking papers as a project specification?


Innovation, involvement, proximity and quality of service are at the heart of our corporate culture. We are already working with Agile method on all our software developments.

Man explaining how work agility

 

The Agile method at Tiama places the needs of the customer at the center of the project’s priorities. It allows close collaboration between R & D and Marketing. The Development and Validation teams are integrated into the project right from the specification and planning phases.

As a fierce defender of the information sharing, you will become essential to the smooth running of the project.

 

The planning of a release is the result of a close collaboration between the developers, the validation team and the marketing department. The marketing team considers everyone’s experience to maximize the added value produced. These planning phases provide visibility into the list of upcoming features and tasks. The presence of the validation team during the planning phases makes it possible to keep the acceptance tests up-to-date. In addition, the acceptance tests are in line with the expectations of the marketing department.

 

You will apply a structured technique to the project management

 

A man confirms a sprintThe course of a sprint includes the development of the planned features. A quick progress report on the work is done is every morning which allows to synchronize the development and validation teams.
A sprint also includes design times during which the technical analysis of the next sprints’ features is performed as well as the analysis of dependencies to other expertise such as automation, optics and electronics.
At the end of each sprint, the development team performs a machine demo during which each developer presents to the marketing department, the new features he has developed. It is up to the marketing department to validate the conformity between the developments realized and the expected. This demo is the result of the work of each member of the team.

 

With Agile method ,you will be involved in a product-oriented quality approach

 

Infographic that explain steps in Tiama's sprint in agile methodAll the iterations are concluded by a retrospective. It is a dedicated-time during which each member of the team gives his opinion on the functioning of the team during various workshops. The result is a list of improvement actions.
These retrospective phases enable to continuously improve the process and methods of work.
In this new process, the role of the project manager is to ensure the proper synchronization of all the expertise in the R&D but also outside of this department. He monitors the progress of the project through cost and time parameters. He takes part to the planning and retrospective phases.

 

If you join us, you will have the opportunity to work using an adapted and modular method.

When developing projects, your customer will be a priority and this is what builds today’s Tiama success.
