One of the most important foundations of JazzTeam culture is a proactive attitude. When performing the main tasks, we offer new ideas and solutions that bring additional value to our customers, as well as transfer our development and project management experience.
Regardless of the types of services provided, our company strives to establish trust-based relationships with customers. Each JazzTeam service implies the participation and assistance of a project manager, who is always ready to advise the customer on emerging issues. If a manager sees problems in the processes or technological difficulties, they focus the customer’s attention on the existing risks, openly discuss possible consequences with the customer, and explain the actions to be taken. This approach allows the customer to clearly see the real situation on the project and understand which practices need to be invested in right now.
However, a complex solution is required in some situations: from project analysis and creating an improvement strategy to implementing practices by the manager and working with engineers. For example, when years of delivery problems and the accumulated technical debt have a negative impact on the team motivation. In this case, we provide a professional IT consulting service, as well as solutions to technological and business problems on the project.
As part of consulting, we provide a service for solving business problems.

Over the years, we have helped dozens of customers improve processes, build a technological strategy and break out of a seemingly dead end thanks to the following advantages:
Prudence and cost-effectiveness. By implementing changes, we save everything you create. Our team gives reasons for each decision and introduces engineering practices that generate significant savings over the long term. All changes and improvements are carried out only after a thorough analysis of possible risks. Therefore, even in the process of serious work on technical debts, your team will remain focused on commercially important software deliveries.
System approach. We comprehensively and elaborately analyze problems on the project, in parallel with the elimination of technical debts we improve the team culture, optimize processes and solve problems associated with psychological difficulties. Thanks to the parallel development of several directions, we are able to quickly achieve the first significant results and ultimately eliminate all the causes of difficulties and problems on the project.
The ability to broaden your outlook in IT.

This increases your independence and allows you to apply the gained experience to other projects.
Gradual painless transformations for the team. Changes in the company often generate internal resistance among employees. Our professional approach allows us to gradually and painlessly introduce new tools and practices. In the process of providing consulting services, we simply and clearly explain the need for the proposed solutions, demonstrate to the team the effectiveness of implementing engineering practices (CI/CD, writing Unit tests, test automation) and Agile events. As a result of this approach, the customer’s team remains the same even upon significant long-term changes in the company’s processes.
Honesty and openness. Working on a project, our team carefully examines your product, peculiarities of its architecture, management processes, and the atmosphere in the team. As a result of the analysis, we share with you an independent view reflecting the real project state.
You will be able to understand what caused the problems, delve into the current situation on the project, and make decisions on further actions.

Using the skills of strategic planning and professional flair, we will create a strategy for the development of your product for several years to come, which will allow you to avoid mistakes after the end of our cooperation. Being guided by the proposed plan, you will be confident in the future of your business.
* If you decide to stop cooperation at this stage, we will provide you with an official document describing the problems identified and a list of actions proposed by our company.
