Why We Created The Success in Software Workshop
Each software project is unique.
Your budget. Your timing. Your market. Your goals...
It's impossible to create a one-size-fits-all lecture that answers all your questions and shows you a guaranteed path success.
It cannot be done!
After all, someone else's best practice that helped them become a multi-billion dollar firm, might actually be the one critical flaw that causes your failure.
Or someone else's costly scheduling "mistake", can actually be the key decision that catapults your project into global success.
Just as every patient has different medical needs and responds to different medicine, every software project has wildly different technical, people and project needs.
It all depends on the specifics of your project...
This is why, every project must be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Every project must be designed differently, validated differently, staffed differently, coded differently, tested differently, marketed differently, and even use a different development methodology.
And the discovery of these needs is by far the most expensive and time consuming critical exercise that separates the winners from the obsolete.
Do you know how your project must be built for success?
We created the Success in Software workshop to show you exactly that!
By giving you personalised guidance in a small workshop setting, we're able to teach you the best practices of the industry, and also show you how to apply the right software management principles to your project.
How The Success in Software Workshop Is Structured
When you attend our workshop you'll learn our Software Mastery Framework™ and get all the important answers to your most crucial questions.
(Don't worry all attendees sign non-disclosure agreements and we guarantee that that no one will be competing in your sector or for your business)
Each week, we'll meet virtually as a small group and focus on one of the seven components of the Software Mastery Framework™.
These components are:
1. Define Your Problem - solve the right problems with the right technologies
2. Set Your Team - run your team (not the other way around!)
3. Chose Your Tech - pick the right tech stack, software architecture and development infrastructure for your needs
4. MVP ASAP - get the most cost effective prototype. Not just a demo - but an asset that can be built on
5. Big Waterfall - guarantee that your project makes fiscal sense, gets done in budget and on time
6. Small SCRUM - your developer(s) work at peak capacity on their own, without you babysitting them
7. Feedback Loops - so that users love your software and tell their friends
Each session will consist of a short and practical lecture, a case study breakdown as well as a comprehensive Q&A session where we'll work on your project needs.
Who The Workshop is Designed For
Our workshops are designed for entrepreneurs and business leaders who manage software projects.
While software developers who wish to become managers can and do attend our workshops, Success in Software is specifically designed for individuals who do not have a coding background.
If you are hiring developers, running a software team, or building a new application, you will get a lot of value when you attend.
If you are an angel investor or a VC professional who evaluates software projects and hears pitches, you will also find the workshop very helpful. (Many do)
Our Development Philosophy
We have a very practical and pragmatic approach.
We also believe that every dollar saved during development, is another dollar that can be invested in marketing. (Which is always more expensive than anticipated)
That's why, we focus on teaching a cost effective and rapid approach in development.
But that does not mean we advocate finding the cheapest labor, building low quality software or cutting corners!
And this distinction of attitude is important...
Software development is a special beast and a creative endeavour. Treating it like industrial labor or hunting bargains does not work.
If the first and only question in your mind when leading a software project is cost of development or how much your developers earn per hour - we are not the right group for you and this is not the right workshop for you.
But if you want to create stable, extensible and lucrative software for the long run, and you want to invest in your product to build a profitable business - you will thoroughly enjoy our workshops.
