We worked with Pride in London to build an open source platform for their new app, allowing the community to celebrate and contribute all year round. Read how we used React Native to deliver a fully functioning mobile app across two platforms working as a cross-functional volunteer team.
As someone who has worked in delivery for a while I have come to trust my instincts and know when certain suggestions aren’t going to help a team to deliver. But you need more than instincts to be able to explain situations clearly to your clients. Thanks to a recent Kanban training course I now have the language and solid examples backed by theory to do just that.
Since January we’ve been branding, designing and building the 2018 Pride in London app (which you can download here). It was a big deal to take on a project like this for free and involved considerable reputational risk if we didn’t deliver. So why did we chose to do it in the first place? And what did we learn along the way?
As a Delivery Lead for Red Badger, I’m often at the forefront of agile transformation. After all, Red Badger is a consultancy focused on the digital transformation of large companies through innovation and practical delivery expertise. And those companies wouldn’t need us if everything was rosy to begin with.
When it comes to delivering digital products, expertise in UCD (User Centred Design) and an understanding of how digital design works across channels and devices (as well as development) is essential. Many organisations struggle to get this team set up right. But when it’s done well, your customers are looked after, retention and acquisition increases and profit goes up.
