Building It Right: How We Helped LoanBoss Create a Market-Leading CRE Platform
Case Study: Why Developers Shouldn’t Skimp on Discovery
Write code in the first weeks of a project? No way. A dev team’s first task is to understand a client’s business needs. LoanBoss learned this the hard way by initially working with a budget-rate agency. In this case study, you will:
- Learn how fostering a collaborative relationship helps reveal what features the software requires.
- Discover how delivering code every two weeks lets us iterate quickly—and keep builds on schedule.
- See how case diagrams and feature maps let us nail estimates and keep projects within budget.
Get Your Hands Dirty in Discovery
When a dev team approaches discovery lightly, they all but guarantee a botched product delivery. The first weeks of a build should be about forging a strong working relationship. We do this by learning all of a client’s challenges and business goals.
The Importance of Client-Developer Rapport
Clients should never have doubts about a development team’s ability. The emotional and financial costs of a struggling project are way too steep. That’s another reason we spend so much time learning about each client’s business.
