We have developed and refined our process over years of iteration and client feedback. Our agile process helps our clients deploy quicker, focus on day one deliverables, and adapt to their client's needs as their product grows. Our process includes:

  • 01. Inception Workshop

    Before we can begin to design a solution, we must first explore the problem. During this kickoff phase, we work with your team to define goals, explore the user base, develop task flows and finally, create a hypothesis for project. This intial meeting prepares each team for the work ahead and the goals we want to meet.

  • 02. Design + Discovery Phase

    Data drives successful products, that's no secret. During our design phase we explore solutions to the problems we defined during our inception workshop, test our theories on real users and refine ideas until they are just right. Using paper prototypes, surveys and interviews, we collect data to support all decisions we make.

  • 03. Agile Development

    Once we have sufficient data to support a design, we take it to development. We work in two-week sprints, track our progress in Trello and Q/A each feature for browser consistency and code quality before moving on.

  • 04. Deploy + Test + Iterate

    We make rapid deployments which allow us to futher test features on users and determine what works and what does not. If a feature needs work, we put back into the design and development cycle for further exploration. Product development is an iterative process done over time and when done right, a product can grow and adapt as needed.

Made By Munsters has fit in with the Schlep team from day one – and continues to drive our product to be top performing.” — Hunter Riley, CEO + COO at Schlep
