Energiewerks 3D – Discover, Design, Deliver : Part 1

Emphasis of the Energiewerks 3D process, on delivering small incremental value adding functionality, from concept to delivery, with continuous testing by subject matter experts, product owners and implementors at every stage of the delivery process, ensures no large scale failures occur. A “fail fast and often while working at pace” approach, allows any inevitable failure to meet persona’s needs to be caught early, and corrected quickly, with limited rework and cost overruns.

What is Energiewerks 3D ?

Discover, Design and Deliver system functionality repeatably, failing fast in some cases, yet delivering small increments of value to personas continuously, is the hallmark of Energiewerks way of building complex systems.

Discovery processes involves extensive user interviews to define personas and their needs, Making, testing and fine tuning prototypes using opinionated patterns is the design phase and implementation of prototypes using opinionated idioms and architectures delivered on various platforms ( mobile, web, desktop, cloud and devices) coupled with operations and support is third D.

Energiewerks 3D borrows from Shape Up, Design Thinking, SAFe, patterns and idioms, all time boxed and repeatable resulting in successful delivery of incremental system functionality.

Energiewerks teams are located across continents. Subject matter experts in the US, Europe, UAE and India. Product managers and designers in the US and India. Developers in several locations in the US, Europe and India. Traditional “in the same room” techniques such as Design Thinking, Shape Up, Agile development / Scrum did not work for us. COVID-19 and work from home mandates, required online collaborative tooling. This prompted the development of the Energiewerks 3D methodology.

Energiewerks 3D incorporates tooling such as BaseCamp, Miro, Design Thinking templates, TimeTimers, Zoom rooms, Bitbucket, Pipelines, Kubernetes, Cloud environments, Lambda/Kappa architectures, Mobile/Web/Desktop frameworks, multi-model databases and micro-services in an opinionated solution to deliver products, projects and services at a rapid pace at low cost and high velocity.
