Figure 01: Three pillars of Agile

“If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”

— W. Edwards Deming

Figure 02: Three pillars with three focus areas.

Discovering 3x3

  • Business — focus on the operation, budgets, vision, objectives, including team structure and onboarding. What do we expect from our proposition? Who do we compete with? And how do we address the differences in our product?
  • Design — concentrates on the content and experience tied to the final design proposition, including assets management. In other words, how this thing looks, feels and behave.
  • Development — concentrate on sharing information about APIs, databases, and data migrations along the way, tracking the releases and integrating what we have built.
Figure 03: What is glueing every product team?

The philosophy behind the 3x3 model.

We believe that transparency is the key to success and that every team member is accountable to contribute. We do not build our responsibilities and duties; we thrive with our accountability. We all help define a better future–for us, for the product and for users/clients we all support.
