How We

Deliver Value

The Development Factory serves businesses looking to develop and launch (or replatform) digital products that grow top line revenue or increase operational efficiency.

We deploy whole product teams on a fractional basis so that you can focus on the goal, not the process.

Throughout every engagement we help you sustainably insource great talent, expert product knowledge, and advanced product delivery methods.

Your ROI is our success metric.

We Build

Better Products, Better

First,

Build the Right Product

We like to start by embracing a “mindset of maybe,” meaning maybe our ideas are right, but maybe we’re missing something? This approach encourages healthy inquiry when possibilities are most limitless and the cost of change is lowest.

Building the right product starts with identifying who are the customers and users? Do they want this solution? Why do they want this solution? How can we test our assumptions quickly and cheaply to be more certain of our success?

Are we building something that is desirable, viable, and feasible?

The Everyday Innovator - Ep 157
Listen to Suzanne discuss the challenges of working with development teams and strategies for building products better on The Everyday Innovator podcast.
"Ask the Tech Guy" - Ep 30
Listen to Andrew discuss how to assess the impact of change, the myth of the “full stack developer” and why all companies should have their own API on 100PM podcast.

Then,

Build the Product Right

Are we leveraging best practices to deliver product effectively and efficiently?

We’ve seen a lot of good ideas go wrong by miscalculation of effort and complexity, as well as “optimistic offshoring.” Building digital products well requires so much more than putting two developers together in a room.

Our agile delivery process ensures complete transparency, measurable product progress in short development cycles, inline testing and feedback gathering, and your participation.
