Getida
and Underbelly aligned throughout the project and focus on resolving important decisions at the least expensive point in the project.

Onboarding
02
Cross-Functional Product Team
03
Discovery & Design Sprint
04
Continuous Delivery

Timeline

Phase one: 
Onboarding

Creating a clear roadmap

The onboarding phase focuses on defining the strategy, goals, and constraints of the project, focusing on the following deliverables: 

  • Requirements gathering
  • Establishing meeting rhythms
  • Provisioning
  • Getting access to component libraries & patterns
Roughly 1-2 weeks
In this phase, we often stumble upon fresh avenues and unforeseen potentials. Given the inherently explorative nature of this phase, the timeline and budget may naturally evolve. Should any shift occur, our commitment is to provide clients with immediate implications of such changes.

Phase two: 
Cross-Functional Product Team

Build trust with transparency

As we begin our collaboration, we collaborate closely with your team to execute against the roadmap. We use an agile & transparent approach to accelerate products to market.

  • Backlog Prioritization
  • Release Burnup Charts 
  • Velocity tracking and analysis
  • Epic and milestone progress monitoring
  • High-level project status
Roughly 2 weeks
Decisions made in the discovery phase may affect both time and cost estimates. If needed, new estimates will be created at that time.
Phase three: 
Discovery & Design Sprint

Continuous testing & refinement

Product designers work with your vision to identify opportunities and break down work into functional user stories. Validating these designs before they are developed allows the business to pivot early, saving on costs and ensuring you continue to deliver value.

  • Requirements gathering
  • Backlog prioritization
  • Prototyping & usability testing
  • Stakeholder & Product Manager Review
2 week sprints
We are committed to notifying clients as soon as possible if any unforeseen obstacles arise during implementation that affect the timeline.
Phase four: 
Continuous Delivery

Continuous testing & refinement

Engineers work closely with product designers to implement requirements and design assets. Progress is visible incrementally rather than a large reveal at the end of the roadmap.

  • Backlog prioritization
  • Quality Assurance testing (QA)
  • Deployment to staging environment
  • Stakeholder & Product Manager Review
2 week sprints
We are committed to notifying clients as soon as possible if any unforeseen obstacles arise during implementation that affect the timeline.
