4 phases of Pega Express


Phase Description
Discover In the Discover phase, your team uses design thinking techniques to clarify the desired outcomes. You define your Minimum Lovable Product (MLP) and get ready to begin your project.
Prepare During Prepare, your team designs a solution and creates a product backlog using Scrum best practices. You also establish governance and enable your team.
Build In the Build phase, you iteratively configure and test your application. You use Scrum project management methods with Pega's low-code platforms and out-of-the-box tools. Pega Express best practices are built into platforms like App Studio or Next Best Action Designer to define application components and prioritize MLPs quickly.
Adopt The Adopt phase readies your application for production, and prepares the business for transition to "business-as-usual." During Adopt, you analyze application performance while planning your next MLP release.
