(that being said, I appreciate the marketing insight. I'll definitely share these tips with the co-founders of the company)

comment How can we unify business goals and technical goals?
Sorry, I was kind of unclear about what I meant by "whatever we can get". We are trying to focus on certain industries, like higher education and transportation, but we've also got some assorted contracting jobs (right now we're working on an iOS port of an existing Android app). My issue is we've been spreading ourselves thin as developers, since we're working on several projects simultaneously instead of one or two larger, more focused jobs.

comment How can we unify business goals and technical goals?
Thanks for the advice. I'm also worried about the question getting closed since it's taken a more business-oriented focus that I'd expected. The problem definitely has implications for all business, but I think the situation is unique with software. I was expecting the discussion to be more focused on ways to efficiently manage software projects, but that being said I'm still happy with the feedback!

Awesome advice. We've definitely been trying our best to specialize in certain industries. Due to financial strain, though, we're finding that we have to accept whatever we can get!

Interesting... I'll definitely check this out. Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you that we should let the customer define the company's focus and direction, but so far, all of our projects have been fixed-scope, fixed-price, single delivery systems (with maintenance). Should we instead be focusing more on multiple, incremental deployments to the client? How do you go about pricing something like that?
