Supercharge your Product Development team
What is the Software Factory?
The Software Factory product delivery model is lightweight, easy to adopt and significantly, provides a foundation for effective information governance and change management.
The Team Model and Process Model are the two key elements of the Software Factory. The Team Model defines how you organise your available resources and the Process Model automates the activities required to deliver secure, robust features and changes to your product and infrastructure.
The model has been used by over 500 product delivery teams across the globe and is the result of decades of experience building solutions in #Healthcare, #Finance, #IoT, #Food Technology, #Logistics and B2C / B2B #Marketplaces.
It’s just as applicable and easy to operate for a start-up with a single developer as it is for larger and more mature product development teams.
Businesses that have adopted our Software Factory quickly see enormous benefits in terms of predictability of product release cycles, improvements in the quality of software released, reduced effort being applied to maintenance and unplanned fixes aw well as positive impacts on staff morale.
500+ software businesses have adopted the Threadable Software Factory Model
100% integration with Jira, Bitbucket/Git, SonarQube, GCP, AWS, Azure and more
~10 days to roll out to your teams
5 mins from submission of code, to automated build, test, security checks through to automated (*if required) deployment
We needed to scale our platform and implement world class information security policies and best practices in software development. Threadable held our hand through the process of implementing solid software design and development practices
One of the most enjoyable and educational experiences I have had in my career to date has been working alongside Threadable. They provided us with product delivery processes that enabled us to gain traction quickly with hospitals and clinical institutions across the world.
The Team Model
The team model assigns responsibility and accountability directly to the individuals who are conceiving and building the product.
Each of the 6 key roles in the delivery of products are included in the team model - each with specific responsibilities and quality goals that must be achieved in order for a product to be considered successful.
These goals drive your team and define the team model. While it's true that the entire team is responsible for the product’s success, the team model provides transparency, deploys accountability and keeps a laser focus on business outcomes.
The team model is flexible to deploy to a small product team yet scalable to allow you to quickly ramp up and down resources as your needs dictate.
Threadable Team Model - 6 key quality goals
Deliver your solution within the project constraints
- The fundamental constraints of any project include those of scope, budget and schedule. Find the balance for optimal execution.

The Process Model
The process model provides a fully automated production line for your team to prioritise and submit ideas and see them transformed into features that are automatically tested and deployed to QA, UAT and production environments quickly.
Multiple automated quality gates and release checks are included such as continuous regression tests, automated Jira issue transitioning and code reviews. Technical debt and security compliance becomes a metric to track and manage.
Align the team with a shared definition of clean code. Meet your customisable and defined standards every time with continuous feedback on code and a clear go/no-go quality gate in pull requests.
Henry Ford reduced the time it took to build a car from more than 12 hours to one hour and 33 minutes.
Build your team and product with the same philosophy
We adopt the same "production line" philosophy as Henry Ford when it comes to building products.
The Software Factory approach allows you to focus more time, energy and resources on creating new innovations and getting your products to market quicker.
It's not rocket science but it is powerful. The model aligns your business goals and commercial objectives with streamlined and efficient product development processes.
It allows you to focus on the commercial challenges of customer acquisition and revenue growth - in the knowledge that you can scale up / down quickly and efficiently.
The results? You quickly see enormous benefits in terms of cost savings, time to market, product quality and supportability.
