Your plans will validate the client’s roadmap against Magento current or expected features. Included in the planning process, you will conceptualize and experiment with alternative approaches, validating the architecture against requirements, budgets and assumptions. Your vision must verify and validate our development process, ensuring adherence to quality standards and agile methodology.
