Loginvault Beta (2013)

Loginvault project overview

The creation of Loginvault has been one of my favourite projects to date. Mostly due to the agility of our team and the Product Manager's lean approach to the development process. Sadly the business decided to shelf the product after its Beta release.

A Capacity and Capability Report consists of a series of GAP analyses of the team’s soft skills, hard skills and technical aptitude, a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis and a Succession & Risk plan.
