We want our partners to feel the sense of ownership at every moment of the process. Creating an "open kitchen" approach with user stories, code commits and daily meetings mixed with Agile approach is one corner stone of our business.
We're always ready to speak about project goals and ideas before any deals are struck.
Designs, mock-ups, wire frames, user stories and proper "discovery" is always preferable. Sinking our teeth into the story and project makes us enjoy what we are doing. We take a sense of ownership with our projects to make the business goals work.
