Process, with a human touch.
It’s not just project management; it’s also people management.
Agile development principles.
Plan, sprint, launch, iterate, repeat. The Agile project management fundamentals.
Projects change direction, and that is okay. We approach software project management by relying on a few classic tactics:
- Plan, sprint, demo, retro — follow the ceremonies.
- Pivot if the business changes directions.
- Communication and documentation.
- Collaboration tools that give you a full view of the progress.
- Both business and technical leadership on your team.
"If you want vendor meetings to include strip clubs, charcuterie boards & bullshit, Acro Commerce are not your people… move along. It is a refreshing change from the starched-shirt yuppie insects I normally deal with.
The Acro Commerce team is chock-full of efficient communicators. Be it email or meetings, every interaction I’ve had with Acro Commerce has been professional, purposeful and results-oriented. During meetings, the Acro team makes sure they understand a subject before moving on. They often say things back to you to make sure things are mutually understood."
Michael Odobas, Director of Information Services, Eminence Organic Skin Care

"Building a project with Acro Commerce is about more than producing code to launch. We have to train the clients to become part of an agile software team, understand their roles and responsibilities, keep them on track for timelines and help them to really own the product outcomes. We have a responsibility as project managers to educate and guide clients until they are fully integrated teammates. We are codependent in a software project, and building trust and a proper rhythm is key to launching and meeting expectations."
Taylon Culling, Director of Project Management, Acro Commerce
