Essential reading for Marketing Technology product developers.

Scrum’s history can be traced back to a 1986 Harvard Business Review article, “The New New Product Development Game”. The article narrates how companies such as Honda, Canon, and Fuji-Xerox produced world-class results using a scalable, team-based approach to all-at-once product development. It shows the importance of empowered, self-organizing teams and outlines management’s role in the development process. Download it here

Tip: You can learn from this website

The Aricketts.com website follows a 12-step system that I developed over the years to provide a complete e-business solution to businesses. I encourage you to think about your business processes along these pillars (12 icons in the top fold).The process will help to increase business value. You can access your user dashboard and personal web emails via the website.

As you proceed through the site, ask yourself this important question:
Do I have this minimum e-business process in place and what does it take to implement it?

You really don’t want a website: what you really want are lifelong customers

Building a website and “doing social media” is not going to help a person build a successful business. Success depends on the strategies that you implement! Building a website and “doing social media” are not strategies, they are tools. Strategies are those business activities that: promote the organization’s ideas, product, and services, enhance customer relationship, facilitate exchange, and build the organization’s brand. Some of these strategies will need more than a social media campaign or website. You should be thinking about follow-up systems and analytics

Family Owned Business

Once you become a member, you will receive enterprise-class hosting for your web applications. Solutions are customized based on the member’s needs. So, a member looking to start their business can get logo design, business cards, brochures and an e-commerce website. Another member may have all of these but need a drip marketing campaign created.

Financing for Members

Building a website or app, hosting and maintaining it can have expensive startup costs. In most instances, these costs can be financed, allowing new members to do more with their startup capital. Members can get a professional e-commerce website spreading the cost for development over a period of time. See Membership and Terms of Service

    Controlling The Costs And Risks Of Technology R&D

    As DevOps engineers we need to constantly experiment in order to keep your architecture robust and scalable, and to deliver technology and cost advantages to your business.

    With an in-house team, you’d end up paying for them to experiment on your product or conduct additional research and development (R&D). By partnering with us, you’re not paying for that time directly, which means you get the benefits of DevOps experimentation at a fraction of the cost.

The DevOps Team has over 20 years combined experience in marketing and marketing technology. We have worked with nonprofits, for-profits and government organizations. The skills of the DevOps team is a combination of creativity, digital know-how and leadership.
