Our process

Interactive Monkey uses a lightweight agile methodology to develop software. Development is delivered in iteration to help the client ensure that what is being built meets the client’s expectations.

It is important to also describe the various stages or phases of development and detail which components or milestones will be delivered during each phase.

  • First step

    Product Planning

    We capture the work to be developed in the form of backlog items. You can define user stories, requirements, or features to capture the product vision and roadmap for your system.

  • Second step

    Sprint Planning

    After the backlog has been created, estimated, and groomed, the project team can begin planning an iteration, also known as a sprint. Here we will create the tasks to implement a backlog item.

  • Third step

    Sprint

    The sprint is where our monkeys start work. A sprint is usually a small amount of time, normally about 2 weeks to a month. The aim is to complete all of the tasks agreed at the sprint planning stage.

  • Fourth step

    Deliver

    At the end of a sprint we will release the completed features to the test environment. This means you get to see your product quicker giving you the ability to steer it in the right direction.
