PB NXT - our biggest IT project so far
Part 1

How we started this awesome project

Last July, Peter – the founder of Perfectlybasics.com – asked each member of the PB team to think about what our future fashion web shop should look like: “think out-of-the-box, just write down what comes to mind and think about what the future can bring when it comes to shopping online.” The submitted ideas were the first step towards our biggest IT project so far: PB NXT - as we have named the project.

Leading this awesome project is duo team Dennis (IT developer) and myself (Business development). The goal is to build a new responsive website, starting from scratch. This means we can create and build technical functions, business logic and processes as we see fit; no limits! My responsibility within this IT project mainly comes from a business perspective: Business Process Modelling Notation and the creation and preparation of services, standards and business processes. Subsequently, Dennis reviews the input and eventually builds it. So, Dennis and I have been working together closely - with the support and input of Peter - for the last couple of months. And we have become really skilled as ‘rubber ducking*’ buddies😉. In a next blog, I would like to share with you how I managed the first steps of this project, and how we incorporated the ideas of all PB-members into a roadmap and an asset planning.

*Rubber ducking
A programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck.
