It's a bit outdated, but still good in terms of evaluating a required feature set.
You need to have a software development process in place. Agile methodology is one of the most popular at the moment. It links product features to actual code released in fixed periods of time (iterations or "sprints").
Using this framework, product owners can get an estimate for each proposed product feature and manage available resources (developer's time in this case) accordingly.
The most viable option is hiring an experienced software project manager (part time), who can get development process on track, so that you can concentrate on managing business, not IT. Alternatively, you can assign additional responsibilities on one of developers to standardize and oversee your development process.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me, I'm sure I can give you a lot of good insights.
I know Khaz as one of the most active members of the Cloud Computing group. I have consistently enjoyed his perspective and deep understanding of cloud computing issues.
Khaz possess an intriguing vision for Cloud Computing and understands many of the complexities associated with delivering next generation compute architectures. His ability to move beyond the theoretical and help deliver upon a vision is a differentiating capability for a research and development leader.
Khaz's advanced work on breaking through cloud computing diversity and manageability issues has created the keystone of an open and exciting new IT infrastructure.
Khazret demonstrated amazing ability to find the unique methodology and solution in the various projects. Excellent analytic skills speed up the development process on the one hand and beautiful sense of humor makes this process easy-going on the other. His presence in team would benefit to any company.
Without Khaz, CloudSlam would not have happend. Conceiving this as a virtual conference is very apt for the Cloud Computing topic, and by this he managed to make this a truly international event.
I attended twice Cloud Slam, Khazret organized and managed. For me, Cloud Slam is The conference on Cloud Computing not only because you can attend and play recorded sessions from anywhere in the world, but also because the presentations are the best I attended.
Khazret is a rare talent able to understand technical issues and priorities, and organize to solve it and often in an innovative and efficient way.
It was a pleasure to work with Khazret, he is extremely professional and collaborative.
he is an asset to any organization
I worked with Khaz as a software developer at Enomaly Inc. I was always greatly impressed with his abilities as a software architect. The breadth of his knowledge is impressive. Khaz's approach to problem solving is both methodological and thoughtful. He has that rare ability to see both the problem at hand as well as the big picture regarding a project. Working with Khaz was always a pleasure and I would do so again in an instant. If you have an opportunity to work with this guy, take it. You'll be better for the experience!
Inspired and passionate, Khaz brings a top tier of professionalism and creativity rarely seen in the wild. He is attuned to the latest open source and traditional technologies with a keen vision for emerging technical trends. Khaz is the ideal open source Software Development Leader and a key asset at Enomaly.
Collaborating on IT projects with Khaz, I have found him to be a rare combination of both methodical, and inspired. He will come up with a clever, and realistic solution to a problem, then implement and test it until it is both complete, AND reliable.
He has also developed a reputation for being relentless at pursuing a problem.
