In cooperation with TIS, Waive set the MVP's objectives and preconditions tightly before converting them into concrete development steps. The MVP was actually built based on short sprints according to the scrum methodology. Every Monday, there was a team-wide Skype session, evaluating last week's sprint and setting goals for the week ahead. "Working in weekly sprints with TIS ensures that you see clear progress and that we can adjust quickly if necessary." After the planned 5 weeks, the MVP was live at some Waive customers.
You can clearly see that the expertise of the TIS team is an enormous added value for early stage start-ups. First, the transformation of Waive's initial plans into a concrete development plan saves a lot in time-to-market and budget. Secondly, TIS ensured the quality and robustness of developments by implementing minor quality improvements on its own initiative. "Especially in the MVP phase, it is important for startups that the development partner can guarantee quality and prevent downtime with customers."
