# Methodology

“Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”

We’ve read a lot of “methodologies,” and they all sound the same. And they’re no indication of quality, either.

Aldosoft believes all projects are different, and that a one-size-fits-all methodology is either too rigid or too vague to be useful. Instead we have two principles that guide us in developing a project plan for any given effort.

## Information Design Is Fundamental

For any project the most important aspect is organizing the content or functionality into a well-designed, intuitive, complete collection of information or features. If this hasn’t been done before Aldosoft starts a project, it will surely be the first thing we do.

## Get Something Working, Fast

Some hidden requirements, unguessed features, or necessary information will only be expressed or understood once the client can sit in front of a computer and use what is being developed.

For that reason we build a working prototype of the project as soon as we possibly can, and add new elements as they are completed. (If you prefer a buzzword, we’re “agile”.) This allows early and frequent client interaction with the project–ensuring success, not surprises.
