Changes In Schedule

Iteration Date of Schedule Revision Change in Schedule Reason Mitigation
6 3 Sept 2017 Switched iteration 7 features (Learning Module) and iteration 8 (Payments Module) Payments module had the higher technology risk (sponsor given payments API integration) and hence required by team to tackle earlier. All preparation (API given by sponsor, understanding of payments API by development team) was done and team is ready to implement payments in iteration 7.
7 17 Sept 2017 Added new feature (pre/post lab quiz) in learning module Sponsor request to add pre/post lab quiz to improve value proposition of KineticLoans as a learning platform. Team reviewed and accepted addition of feature Analytics module features were pushed to iteration 9. PM and Backend team re-estimated their efforts for iteration and assigned tasks accordingly.
7 17 Sept 2017 AWS Deployment date was shifted from 18 Sept to 21st Sept. Effort required for Funding and Repayments module exceeded expectations. Team postponed AWS deployment date to 21st Sept (iteration 8) to allow completion of module
7 18 Sept 2017 UAT 2 date was shifted from 21 Sept to 29 Sept Delay in deployment of application due to effort required for Funding and Repayments module Postpone UAT to 29 Sept to allow for deployment and sufficient preparation
10 30 Oct 2017 Added new feature (timed quiz) in gamification module Sponsor request to add timed quiz to improve value proposition of Kinetic Loans as a learning platform. Team reviewed and accepted addition of feature PM and Backend team re-estimated their efforts for iteration and assigned tasks accordingly.

Reflection

Team Reflection:

Throughout our IS480 journey, working on Kinetic Loans allowed the team to gain practical experience in the areas of project management and application development. For instance, each member developed their business acumen by working on a new banking concept (marketplace lending). Furthermore, we encountered several project management challenges (delay’s in timeline, scope increase, etc.) and learnt to apply appropriate strategies to mitigate the risk. The team also achieved rapid progress in improving its technical expertise though learning new programming languages (JavaScript), methodologies (AJAX) and technologies such as the SMU tBank architecture. These learning outcomes have improved us individually and as a team to build a successful implementation of Kinetic Loans for our sponsor.

Individual Reflection:

Sandeep: "As PM of Team Kinetic, I understood the value of regular communication with my team and other stakeholders in averting risks such as requirements inflation, delays in timeline, etc. I acquired strong and quick decision making skills during the several crunch situations we encountered during our 8 months with the project ”

Isha: " Throughout this project, I have definitely grown confident of my front-end abilities in applying a user-centric focus to design. Separation of my personal taste and professional opinion while designing for the client was a great takeaway from the project.”

Vani: "Working on Kinetic Loans has taught me to plan and code in a way that is flexible towards unexpected changes, to understand how API can effect the front-end and to incorporate more than just the customers perspective. It has also allowed me to learn to communicate effectively, and its importance in a group setting. Working on this project for such a long period gave me confidence in my skills and showed me the importance of collaboration.”

Shalabh: "In Kinetic Loans, I have had the brilliant opportunity to improve my technical skills in databse designing as well as building core banking modules such as risk grade and credit scoring. Furthermore, I got to further my Javascript knowledge by using existing libraries and frameworks(D3.js and JQuery) and finding an effective way to represent this data. This exposure was extremely valuable and a great takeaway for the future”

Aditya: "As Kinetic Loans's developer, I understood the challenges of developing a commercial-grade application such as working/integrating with an external application, developing efficient algorithms and consistently maintain a high product quality throughout”

Meher: "As Quality Assurance manager, working with the backend team in delivering a high quality product to our sponsor was a great learning experience I have also gained real-life exposure about different software quality assurance practices which i am aim to carry to my future career in the industry. ”

"I would like to thank team Kinetic for their effort and enthusiasm throughout this project. They are a highly motivated and well balanced team, and I enjoyed working with them. The end result – a marketplace lending platform – will be useful to me in the classroom, and has the potential of being commercialized. Overall, a job well done!"
