Iterative Collaboration Approach

Our collaborative approach aims to provide value to our customers through fully integrated and committed tech teams and the development processes that we fine-tune with their companies and operating models. To achieve this goal we follow a five-step process which ensures that any new partnership is properly started and consolidated step by step.

Collaboration Scope

The relationship ‘s initial emphasis is on identifying the issues and desires of the customer, and balancing these desires with our skills and resources.
Many of this stage’s artefacts and events are:

  • Agreement on confidentiality and learning about each other’s business;
  • Full RFI / RPF;
  • Workshops, either at premises in Fortech or at the location of the company.

Proposal

The parties negotiate and decide on a formal contract that specifies the basic terms of the agreement, such as the delivery process, ownership, working conditions, terms of payment, the parties’ rights and obligations and other generally agreed aspects.    

  • The model of interaction you can choose from is:
  • Unit extension, when setting up dedicated teams to meet the long-term needs;
  • Outsourcing of projects, for short term assignments;
  • A hybrid model which mixes dedicated teams with non-dedicated teams for specific projects.

Ramp Up

A proper ramp up is what distinguishes a successful long-term partnership.At this stage, we pay particular attention to selecting the most suitable people to build the core team, to ensuring the transfer of knowledge and to establishing the remote process and communication within the distributed team.

Implementation

In general, the implementation process follows several phases: bid, order approval, execution, distribution and acceptance of clients. It can also mean recruiting additional team members for team extensions, and increasing what is now a self-managed team.

Continuous Feedback

Our purpose is to contribute to the success of the businesses of our customers and to establish long-term relationships with them. To accomplish this aim, we receive ongoing input that we use to shorten the development process and enhance the deliverables quality, increase team engagement and pave the way for enduring partnerships.
