WebFirst Project Management Philosophy
Our project management philosophy is firmly founded upon two-way communication. Project engagements require teams, and the success or failure of those teams is highly dependent on effective communication, both within the team and with outside stakeholders. So how do we create more effective communication? We start simply by listening. Our active listening process allows us to better understand the needs of our clients. In addition, we believe in honesty and transparency. We are always up front with what we are doing--both with what is going well, and with what requires further improvement. This active listening framework fits into our Agile process where we iteratively break down and complete work. We work closely with stakeholders to define the work and then we demonstrate the work to round out the feedback loop we use for improving our product. In the end we view our work as a collaborative process, where we work with our clients to attain mutually beneficial goals. Finally, we integrate innovation into our project management process - bringing new ideas, technologies and systems to bear where needed.
