Want better results from your programmer? Communicate your goals.

The best developers are consultative. They can work with you to help you achieve the best results for your business.

But you probably wont’ attract the best developers or get the best results if your interactions with them inhibit feedback. For example:

  • Do you provide your programmer with a laundry list of to-do items? Or do you communicate your objectives?
  • Is everything a “priority” to you? Or can you quickly identify the things that are truly the most important?
  • Do you shut down all ideas that didn’t come from you? Or do you express an interest in hearing the programmer’s ideas based on their development expertise?

The most successful relationships between business people and programmers are collaborative. If you aren’t building a collaborative relationship between yourself and your developer, you are missing out on experience that could benefit your business.

What the critics are saying...

As someone with over 20 years of software development experience and currently a small business owner, it has been a pleasure working with Avonelle. In addition to being a talented developer, Avonelle also has database expertise and system design skills. Avonelle is open minded and willing to discuss various methodologies for achieving a project goal. She is also not afraid to ask questions which is vital in a software development project. Her up-front project cost (not estimate) is very helpful in budgeting for a project.
