Three Melons gets ISO 9001 certification on its processes

Buenos Aires, Argentina - December 10th, 2008 - Three Melons is proud to announce that it has become the first game development studio in Latin America to certify processes under ISO 9001.

The studio was able to combine repeatability, consistency and predictability with agility, given that SCRUM is the core methodology used by the studio to develop its games. This approach is key in order to set the grounds for a studio expansion without losing the flexibility, people-focus and touch of the agile principles.

Three Melons’ co-founder and Technology Orchestrator, Patricio Jutard led the effort that involved external consultants and the coordination of the 35 team members.

“Since our launch we’ve embraced SCRUM because we believe in teamwork and agility. When it came to planning the certification, we had to iterate several times with our consultants in order to define the correct repeatable process that wouldn’t make us rigid,” said Jutard.“We know that high quality processes and methodology lead to high quality games, so we are very excited about our future productions.”
