In any outsourced project, establishing the most effective
project management is crucial. That is the reason why we take
utmost care in assigning a project manager to a project. In some
cases, the project manager is local to the client and works
closely with the client throughout the project lifecycle. In
others, we assign a project manager in our offshore office to
correspond with the project manager from the client side.
The very first task of the project manager is to develop a
comprehensive Project Management Plan (PMP) that establishes the
Roles and Responsibilities
- Who does what on the project team; reporting and escalation
Project Audit Plan
- How will the project checkpoints be audited to ensure that
they have been followed consistently.
In addition to the PMP, the project manager and technical team
leader are responsible for developing, tracking, and adjusting a
Microsoft Project Plan (MPP) / Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
that details all the tasks to be carried out, who is assigned to
work on each task, milestones and deadlines for deliverables,
and overall phasing of the project.
Project manager takes up following responsibilities to organize
the management of the project from beginning to end:
Project Scope Matrix (PSM) -
Limitations of the scope, the major milestones and timelines
that must be achieved, and the overall business objectives of
Software Configuration Management Plan (SCMP)
What tools to use for version control, build and releases.
Change Control Process -
The objectives process of requesting a change to the scope or
requirements of a project and how to reach sign off by both the
client and our team on each change request.
Software Application Development Methodology
Managing complex software development projects is about
efficient utilization of resources, risk management, accurate
estimation of budgets and timelines, experienced selection of
appropriate technologies, and scheduling feature development to
meet time-to-market requirements. Risk is a reality in every
project; LATAMhub iterative methodology for software
development is designed specifically to mitigate risk.
The most important question to answer before starting product
development is: Why is this product needed in the marketplace?
The answer to this question constitutes the business objectives
of the product that should drive its entire lifecycle. A
software product's development lifecycle is comprised of four
Requirements: What features will the
Design: How will the product offer
Coding: How will the features be
coded and unit tested?
Testing and delivery: How will the
product be tested and delivered to customers?
These four facets are managed by a project plan that determines
when the software product will offer the required features.
In a traditional Waterfall lifecycle model, the project plan
organizes the four phases in a strict serial order. A lot of
time is spent up front to define and analyze requirements and to
complete the design of the target system before a line of code
is written. This model does not handle changes in requirements
or design well. In addition, it creates an artificial separation
between business analysts, architects, designers, and
programmers, leading to the risk of miscommunication and
divergence between the business objectives and vision of a
software product and its implementation.
Using an Iterative lifecycle model, the four facets of a
software product are integrated so that business objectives
drive the entire process, and the requirements and design are
continuously refined while the code evolves. The project plan
arranges the development into small releases, and mandates
continuing integration of all coded components, incremental
builds, and periodic validation of refined requirements and
design. By doing so, it encourages a shared ownership of the
product among business analysts, software architects, designer,
programmers, and testers; this shared ownership reduces the risk
of miscommunication and divergence. It also enables continuing
refinement and integration to avoid any unpleasant surprises
just before the delivery date.

We take every care to ensure that the software we build
satisfies our client's requirements. The only way to ensure that
is to perform quality assurance throughout the software
lifecycle. We typically involve a lead quality engineer in the
early phases of a project to participate in requirements
elicitation and analysis, to ensure that our quality assurance
team understands the business objectives and the detailed
requirements. This understanding enables the team to develop a
comprehensive quality assurance plan for the project that
includes the following elements:
Test Plan and Test Cases
- We develop a complete testing plan based on the requirements.
The test plan includes unit, integration and system testing. The
test plan includes all the test cases that typically cover
functionality, error handling, performance, scalability, and
fail over, among other required tests. The test plan and test
cases are validated with the client during the early stages of a
project, and are refined and enhanced during the downstream
activities (detailed design and coding).
- During the software lifecycle we trace the requirements to the
design components, to the code modules, and to the test cases.
This enables us to track changes to the requirements and to
validate the test plan covers all requirements and all design
Peer reviews of designs and code
- Depending on the size and duration of a project, we conduct
design and code reviews with architects and engineers from
outside the project. These reviews provide an opportunity for
valuable feedback and independent perspective.
- At the beginning of each iteration of a project, we develop a
detailed acceptance plan that describes all the expected
deliverables during or at the end of the iteration. The client
signs off on the acceptance plan to indicate agreement on the
