Application Development


Snowbird Agility is passionate about quickly and efficiently developing quality software to thrill users. We do this by leveraging a Lean-Agile Mindset, eXtreme Programming (XP) techniques, and Human-Centered Design (HCD) practices. In addition to hiring highly skilled technical professionals, Snowbird selects candidates with robust Agile expertise, committed to continuous exploration, learning, innovation, and growth. We would delight in bringing these qualities to your staff, also.

Uncertain requirements, demanding delivery targets, and poor quality are among many of the impediments that teams can face. For some organizations, this creates a desire to control as many factors as possible. Unfortunately, this approach often creates its own risks – lengthy delivery times, budget overruns, and dispirited staff disconnected from the customer, resulting in missed customer expectations.

The Agile Manifesto, XP, and HCD all place humans in the center of their focus.

  • Agile looks for efficiencies by focusing the teams on what matters most – pleasing the customer and finding better ways of working together.

  • XP includes a holistic quality focus, collaborative coding techniques, and incremental development.

  • HCD seeks to understand the needs, motivations, and behaviors of the target audience so that teams can create products that solve real problems and meet real needs.

Employing an Agile approach produces more valuable software more quickly, with higher quality, all in a sustainable manner. This approach harnesses the expertise, creativity, and passions of a group of people closest to your problem space – the people doing the work of building the systems.

This is accomplished by: 

  • Working smarter, not harder
  • Constantly evaluating priorities and delivering the highest-value features first
  • Eliminating waste and toil
  • Transparently communicating across the team, customers and stakeholders
  • Building-in quality throughout the engineering process
  • Continuously updating skills
  • Empowering decision making at the level where the knowledge lives
  • Inspiring and motivating by communicating a shared vision for the future

By following these principles, teams produce outcomes that exceed expectations. Snowbird Agility excels at leading teams to this level of achievement time and again.
