Our Process

A fresh take on Agile, we FARM all that we do. 

Our fresh approach ensures continuous and improved productivity driven by customer requirements.

It’s easy with us.  Everything we do centers around our guiding principle – helping our customers achieve success and improve worker productivity.  

Most software development projects fail due to poor communication, inadequate testing, lack of budget adherence, or conformance to pre-set or vanilla industry standards.  Our approach, our process of FARM, changes that. We’ve taken failing IT projects in the government and made them referenceable accounts.

This proprietary process, FARM, is the result of the combined experience from our team of seasoned IT professionals, all that have been on the front lines and intricately engaged with all aspects of development, case management, and client requirements.

The result?  Business Process, Customer Experience, Data Process, and Risk Mitigation Process are all aligned and working together, providing results – results that create breakthrough Agility.

Our dedicated process combines a fresh approach along with our depth of expertise and credibility in meeting client and organizational mission. We ‘FARM’ all that we do, utilizing a Fresh approach to Agile, Aligning business drivers, stakeholder needs and priorities and outcomes, driving Results with our focus on client requirements, needs and priorities, and always with our inherent focus on a Managed Approach.


Our unique and fresh approach to Agile methodology results in improved information worker productivity.  Based on the Agile manifesto, individuals and interactions are more critical than processes and tools, customer collaboration is more important than contract negotiation, working software more important than comprehensive documentation, and what we find most critical, responding to change more important than following a plan. It’s our experience than makes a difference.  We know what is needed and when, and our process accounts for variables, priorities, and deadlines to be adjusted, accounted for, and managed.  All we do is Agile.  It’s not just a one time Agile approach; it’s embedded in every aspect of our delivery.  Our unique approach brings response to a change, along with the voice of the customer, and ensures that following a plan forward is not only achieved for a near-term operational effectiveness, but is also flexible for future adaptation.


When we FARM, we take the focused approach of aligning three key success factors to ensure client success.  We align business drivers, stakeholder needs, and priorities and outcomes.  Traditionally these are stovepipe goals, independent of each other, and yet, individually each is critical for organization or mission success. We bring them together, break down barriers, align common attributes, and create a path that moves everyone forward efficiently, effectively, aligned, and always working in the same direction.

Additionally, we always make sure that client requirements using Agile are translated in the results, which are aligned and prioritized with business needs, while feedback is constantly incorporated and product improvement is a daily task.

Result Driven

In order to provide the results clients, organizations, and missions demand from today’s environment, CANDA utilizes a focus on both customer and project driven results.  Everything we do is centered on client requirements, creating results that make an impact and create client success.  We know that environments, requirements, needs and outcome, and mission priorities, fluctuate and change. Our approach accommodates these changes, and keeps requirements prioritized and results driven by client requirements.

Managed Approach

Our managed approach ensures that all aspects of a project are reviewed, communicated, documented, planned, and executed.  We manage and seamlessly deliver data driven information to provide client and mission success.  We ensure clients are in the loop every step of the way, results are personalized to provide metrics, and insights and information are particular to each client, beginning with the set-up where we review critical success factors.  Overlooked aspects to Agile implementation will compromise the very nature of Agile, with assumptions that are made creating roadblocks and stalling progress.  Our approach disables these potential problems and provides clients a dynamic solution that creates results.
