The team worked well within the constraints of the system, hitting deadlines within budgets for the engineering work we were brought in to do. Our developers worked on the live validation system and built in an option to switch off blocking of certificates if the new system had any issues.
Project performance was maintained when the pandemic lockdown hit, with the team successfully transitioning from office to remote working overnight. Productivity increased, despite the multi-supplier team dispersed across the country.
The entire team collaborated closely on the project, giving all a sense of ownership on what was being delivered. Everyone involved knew what was being created and how it was going to be done.
Commenting on the project, Opencast agile technical lead Juan Rodriguez said: “We delivered as an effective team, and our input and strong team processes helped stakeholders work together better, earning their respect as a result. Opencast were seen as problem solvers and the people to answer difficult questions.”
