Save time and money with better requirements

Gathering accurate requirements for your new startup is an essential step to obtain meaningful quotes and time estimates from developers.

Poorly written requirements will result in developers incorrectly quoting for work and building the wrong product features - a kiss of death to many startups.

What steps are involved?

1

I will collaboratively work through your startup idea using 20 years of experience to help refine your product’s user stories and workflows.

2

More than user stories, I will conduct a technical review and provide recommendations of appropriate technologies and tools to reduce the total cost of development.

3

A draft database schema will be designed, providing clear guidance to developers as to how the system should be designed.

4

Finally, I will work closely with you to prioritise the requirements, helping you make informed trade offs between product requirements and technical development time.

A better requirements document

At the end of the process, you will receive a requirements document you can share with developers to obtain quotes for the software build.

This document will include:

1

Refined agile user stories grouped in logical workflows

2

Requirements for a minimum viable product

3

Technical requirements and stories

4

Definition of security roles and policies

5

Database schema

“In a small tech-start up phase, Chris acted as my 'go to' CTO and I trusted him implacably with providing sound recommendations and providing very clear, concise, expertise, documentation and delivery. Chris remains calm in challenging times and is just a great person to work with, with a passion for his craft.”

“Chris' full stack development and startup experience were invaluable in providing a clear direction for the company. He takes a defined and targeted approach to minimum viable product delivery, which drove our research and development processes to adopt new technologies or reject them quickly.”
