  • Understand the phase (from invention, ideation, design, creation, to go-live, ongoing scaling, handling improvements via inclusion of customer feedback) a project is in and can identify how to approach the project accordingly.
  • Know how to help transition a young organisation (< 3 years) into a professional tech company with a business-value first focus.
  • Help ensure that infrastructure required for continuous deployment is available allowing for rapid prototyping.
