The 2014 Product Vision Statement is an important document that helps guide our development

How we work – We use agile software development practices. This means that while we do keep a “long term” road map, we are always adjusting to deliver high value product(s) for our users. We break up major pieces of functionality into Minimally Releasable Features (MRFs) which we prioritize and work on in order of priority.

How we prioritize – The product owner gets feedback from all stakeholders (e.g. Enterprise customers, Community Users, Community Developers, Partners, Engineers, etc) and prioritizes based on feedback.

What changes priorities – The best way to get a feature into OpenClinica is to build it and share your code via GitHub. If it’s good we’ll get it in right away. Even if you can’t write the code, if there is something that you feel passionate about and want to engage with us, please do (the OpenClinica forums are great place to start)!

How often we prioritize – This is something we do on a perpetual basis (day to day). Although the top priorities are less likely to change (especially the ones currently being worked on), if there is a compelling reason to change them, we can. The further out a feature is the less certain its priority and release date are.
