Frame of mind

Discovering ways

to always be better

Everyday BeanMachine seeks to uncover better ways to provide development services and solutions for our clients. We’ve come to understand that software is fluid and it is agile development methods that take advantage of this property. When implemented, Agile can truly optimize the development process.

A brief history

The origin
of Waterfall Method

The Waterfall Method was created in 1970. The process is derived from Henry Ford’s 1913 assembly line innovations. It provided certainty to each step, as in a production line, to guarantee that the final product matched the initial blueprint.

The process always began with rigorous documentation. Systems were built under the assumption that they would never change. Waterfall’s rigidity became an Achilles heel in the dotcom area where we began to see speed and flexibility as requirements and demands.

The manifesto

Lean and
Agile Development

Development tools began to change rapidly in response to new consumer demands. Developers began to question the Waterfall Method and look for ways to be more efficient. In 2001 a group of software developers came together and realized they were collectively practicing development differently than the classical Waterfall Method. They came up with the Agile Manifesto.

  1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  4. Responding to change over following a plan
A lean process

Increase efficiency, decrease bottlenecks, and remove unnecessary complexity

Today, skills and ability to innovate have become strategically more important than the ability to complacently take orders. If you create cross-functional teams that are adaptive, collaborative, and responsive to customer needs you can increase productivity and deliver better results. This is what BeanMachine is all about and the process we deploy for your project.
