    Analysing the market, deciding on the type of app you will build, estimating the budget and, finally, the execution – they all are long steps that can sometimes discourage you.

    If you’re a (mobile) startup, you probably know how hard it is to keep everything (and everyone) organized. Developers, testers, marketers, designers, product managers, investors and every other stakeholder have to be constantly communicating, so that all project specifications are understood and simultaneously internalized. Without the proper structuring of operations, things can go crazy in very little time. You must have at least once been part of an unsatisfactory situation in which the client’s directions were understood and applied differently within the team. If the project manager uses inappropriate coordination methods, the team loses sight of the whole picture and, before you know it, the client is no longer on board.
