Outformations History: An Evolution of Collaboration
Outformations Inc. started in 1989 as a community of independent software developers who worked together informally and formally on a wide variety of projects. In 1995, we crossed a threshold, and made the leap to becoming an incorporated cooperative business. For many years we built custom software solutions together and we have a long list of satisfied clients to show for it.
We were early adopters of Agile Software Development methods such as Extreme Programming and Scrum because they were so effective at increasing collaboration, agility, and the value we delivered to our clients. We were also an early adopter of Force.com because of the excellent platform it provided for rapid application development.
As the effectiveness of Agile methods became more widely recognized, we were increasingly interested in the process that organizations went through when adopting Agile, and how to make that transition easier.
Building this business we’ve learned that our most successful ventures resulted from working well together. To this day, we emphasize collaboration in everything we do, both within our teams at Outformations and with our clients.
