Change Driven Model
In a fixed team approach, the customer has access to a dedicated fixed team, of preferred roles such as Project Manager/Scrum Master, Architect/Tech Lead, Developers, QA Engineers, Business Analysts/Proxy PO etc. In addition to that, these teams are continuously advised/supported by a senior core team that cuts across all 99X Technology projects. Customers have access to this core team on a request basis. Scrum is the preferred process for this model where the customer is able to evaluate team’s delivery capacity beforehand, for his/her planning needs. Under this model, most of our customers use the 99X Technology team as an extension to their own development teams.
This model is better suited for customers with in house software development competencies. When the project lifespan is long and when the requirement and technology complexities cannot be pre assessed, we recommend selecting this engagement model.
The fixed team project model enables the customers to have maximum flexibility in decision-making. As these projects are commonly of lengthy duration, therefore team members are able to experience close interactions with the customer making a better feel of belongings towards the customer. 99X Technology being a service provider primarily focused on ISVs, uses this model for most of our projects.
Plan Driven Model
A model more suited for short term projects (3-6 months) which can be very beneficial to customers who wants to outsource the entire project lifecycle to 99X Technology. With this approach the customer and 99X Technology ensure that a well defined set of requirements are available and the schedule is fixed before the project starts.
With the added advantage of getting an early look at the UI prototypes developed during the requirements elicitation phase, will let the team to be highly independent during implementation phases due to the already well defined scope.
Depending on the risks (scope, technology, domain) 99X Technology team may or may not agree to follow this model unless otherwise risks are mitigated with estimated buffering. If any requirement change occurs during implementation phase those are considered ‘change requests’ and estimations (schedule and cost) would be adjusted accordingly. Although the teams might select to work based on agile methods internally, customers will see structured CMMi based practices externally.
