Minimizing waste and increasing the customer base is important for business development. But, many organizations do not realize the importance of waste reduction. This is where Lean SDLC model can help. It is a method for developing software that focuses on reducing waste, speeding up product delivery, and increasing profit and customer value. 

Symphony Software works with this model to minimize waste and to deliver the right products on time. Here is the process we follow:

Stages of the Lean Software Development Life Cycle

Stage 1: Project Planning

You will need to set the goals and requirements for your project. This will make sure that you are doing something that is worthwhile and going to resonate with the target users. Our team of experts will work with you to help you understand the requirements. 

Stage 2: Iteration Planning

This is where the Lean model stands out! At this stage, our goal is to make something that showcases your idea and is valuable to your target audience. So, you can ask them for feedback and opinions. The customers’ feedback will help to make corrections before starting the development process.

Stage 3: Making a Prototype

The real job begins now. Our developers create the basic ready-to-launch version of the software. It may not have every feature, but it will already show why your product will be worthwhile. This stage will create enough hype to validate the development that will follow.

Stage 4: Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

The MVP stems from the prototype stage but is significantly different. Here, we implement all the changes inspired by the feedback from the previous stages. In the end, the software will be good enough to use and eliminate waste. It will have all the basic functionalities and additional features with updates.

State 5: The Full Thing

From MVP, we aim to reach the final version of the software, with all the advanced features you want. This is the real moneymaker! The software will increase your revenue while eliminating costs on waste.
