Our Approach

Our approach to projects ensures that, whether a corporate giant or a nimble startup, we always have the needs of our clients at the forefront of our decision making.

We understand that organisations need to make informed decisions, and that is especially important with external suppliers. Our agile process manages risk, delivers benefit sooner and enables our clients to change priority when needed.

Anyone can make software. The best engineers create great software by first understanding exactly what it needs to do and then building it in a maintainable manner.

At Abstract Leap, we believe that a deep knowledge of what our clients do, and want to do, will let us help them succeed. We are not content to build what our clients ask of us. Indeed, we work best when in partnership with our clients, challenging their understanding and building the software that they actually need.

Strategy Aligned

Our first job when working with a new customer is to understand their mission, their values and what their current strategic goals are. We record them, maintain them and ensure that our team aligns with them throughout our projects.

Communications

Clear communication is critical to the success of software projects. We place strong emphasis on transparency and knowledge transfer, in both directions.

Planning

A key part of our process involves taking strategic themes and translating them in to discrete pieces of work. Having a clear understanding of our clients business enables us to advise the correct approach so that we can deliver solutions in the right order with the correct appreciation of risk and reward.

Data Aware

Implementing software can all too often be a case of believing we know what our end customers want. By using a data aware approach we can set up the correct data collection and reporting mechanisms to demonstrate return on investment.

Agile

Being agile is understanding that the priorities and requirements of a business change, often quite rapidly, and that software development should respond to those changes and, indeed, affect the changing priorities as well. Our processes are designed with this change in mind, so that not only are we able to respond to change but we expect it as well.

Domain Understanding

Throughout our software projects we look to build a common language and understanding between our clients and ourselves. We instill that language in to our software, ensuring that our code reflects the reality of their business. This is beneficial for our developers, as it enables them to acquire knowledge faster, and it is also beneficial for our clients, as the cognitive jumps required to use or reason about the software are reduced.
