An agile approach to product development: We started with a highly interactive and collaborative discovery to learn about District’s users (their needs, behaviours and expectations ), technologies, and constraints. Our product development squad took ownership of the product vision and the product backlog and used insights derived from discovery to prioritise, develop, iterate and test items in the backlog throughout sprint delivery cycles.
A redesigned user-centred platform for District that enhanced user and customer experience that was scalable, robust and flexible to support future needs. In addition we transferred knowledge of service and product development methods, tooling and facilitation techniques with District staff.
