At PoaTek, our goal is to deliver the best possible software solutions as quickly as possible. That’s why we embrace the Agile Methodology, an approach that allows us to pivot quickly to your changing needs, circumstances, and desired outcomes.


Our approach is a little bit revolution and a little bit evolution. Unlike software development methodologies of the past that emphasized stages similar to building a physical building, we’ve turned those methods on their heads. For instance while planning is a must early in the process, our Agile approach means you can change those plans as you go and discover new features or iterations you’d like to add.

Communication == key to success

The key to successful outcomes is communication, early and often. We keep you in the loop during each iteration so we can be sure your expectations are being met and exceeded.

We aim to please

That’s right. You are our boss. You get the final say. Throughout the Agile Software Development process, if you’re not happy say so. Along with that, if you prefer a different software development methodology for your organization, let’s work together to find a process that works for you.


PoaTek’s Agile approach removes obstacles to communication and understanding by involving you in every step of the process. From the beginning, we will work with you to prioritize features, plan iterations, and schedule review sessions. Along the way, you’ll have access to each iteration so you can make changes. Keep in mind that each iteration you see is a work in progress - nothing is final until you say it is!

Early and Predictable Delivery

Time-boxed, fixed schedule Sprints of 1-4 weeks allow us to deliver new features quickly and frequently, with a high level of predictability. If together we determine there is sufficient business value, Sprints also provide the opportunity to release or beta test the software earlier than planned.

Predictable Costs and Schedule

Because each Sprint is a fixed duration, costs remain predictable and limited to the amount of work that can be performed by the team in the fixed-schedule time box. This, combined with the estimates provided to the client prior to each Sprint, helps you readily understand the approximate cost of each feature and enables you to improve your decision making about the priority of features and the need for additional iterations.

Focus on Users

As part of PoaTek’s Agile approach, our developers and engineers commonly uses user stories with business-focused acceptance criteria to define product features. By focusing on the needs of real users, each feature incrementally delivers value, not just an IT component. This also provides the opportunity to beta test software after each Sprint, gaining valuable feedback early in the project and providing the ability to make changes as needed.
