In its early days, Homer was just a solution that connected realtors to build partnerships.
Over the years the project became more and more robust and added several solutions to make the realtor's life easier.
Consequently, the team itself grew and we started to have more developers, new squads, new designers.
We started to have several implementation problems in our projects. Often basic errors such as button behavior, layout errors, etc. Errors that ended up impacting the combined delivery of the sprints.
These problems were somewhat easier to be solved in the beginning because we had a lean team working in person, the access to doubt was literally on the chair next to us. With the arrival of the pandemic in 2020 the team started working remotely and we started having people in the team from different regions of the country.
Our team also had a lot of difficulty finding out what the trackings of each implementation were, sometimes impacting a wrong reading of performance.
The big goal was to eliminate as many of the implementation errors as possible in all aspects, layout behaviors, trackings, etc. Finding a better organization than the current one.
After analyzing all the material we collected, we highlighted the main points and correlated them with our problems. Separating only what made sense for our day to day life. Many external problems did not fit our reality.
Based on the collected materials, we opted for some definitions:
The results after the implementation of this new organization exceeded our expectations, we were able to reduce the recurrent errors in the sprints by 80%.
The organization was highly praised by members of other teams and part of this organization was used to reformulate the organization of other Homer teams
All the organization of files and organization by solutions facilitated consultation among the teams:
• The data team started to consult the files by itself to access the nomenclature of the trackings.
• The Marketing team gained autonomy to export screen layouts and use them in their strategies.
