16 years ago Mark Pascall woke up one morning, frustrated with his job running one of the biggest corporate websites in New Zealand. Projects were taking too long, going over budget and not delivering. The working day seemed to be spent in non-productive meetings, the culture was toxic and life was stressful. He studied agile methodologies where there was more focus on collaboration, open communication and breaking projects into shorter iterations.
At the time, this was a challenge to the traditional waterfall based projects Mark was involved in. He decided to get out and start his own software company where he could work alongside clients in a more open, collaborative way using the agile techniques and approaches he’d been studying. And so 3months.com Ltd was born. Mark came up with the name, because he believed that due to the incredible rate of change that the software world is seeing, unless you can get your idea/product released within three months, you risk being out of date before you have finished.
In the last 16 years, 3months has gone from strength to strength and built a reputation for helping businesses use new technology to take ideas and turn them into world-class solutions.
