We describe our partnership mindset as “2 Teams, 1 Footprint.” For us, this means creating a positive, collaborative environment in which our teams work together toward shared goals. This mindset and shared environment facilitates cooperation between teams and regular communication across functional areas.
We bring fully functional agile scrum teams to every engagement. Once our team is on the project, they work seamlessly with your internal team, developing and co-innovating together. Not only does this team approach accelerate project completion, it also enables you to tap into a broader set of skills and expertise and benefit from our agile software development approach and mindset.
When you partner with Small Footprint, you’ll notice less friction between IT and business, happier team members and stakeholders and a low impact on your management time.
In fact, we have a financial stake in your success, thanks to our “In Your Shoes” Guarantee. Here’s how it works:
Our Trailblazing approach clears the way to your end goal by bridging gaps in communication and collaboration, bringing business and technology together.
Here’s how it works: At the start of the development process, we collaborate with you to establish clear objectives and strategic goals. This essential groundwork ensures that everyone involved – from internal development teams to executive leadership – has the direction they need.
Next, we conduct training sprints with your team, as a way to quickly align our processes and cultures. During these sprints, our focus is on sharing knowledge and best practices.
Trailblazing engages and motivates teams and significantly accelerates development. In addition, this approach aligns expectations across the organization, establishing clear roles and responsibilities for all participants and stakeholders.
Our Trail Guides ensure excellent communication and collaboration across the development team and all stakeholders. By demonstrating progress every two weeks with product demos, they get your business stakeholders fully engaged in the agile process.
Using a clear understanding of your vision, our Trail Guides convey that vision to the entire development team and continuously prioritize what needs to be built next. They also take over the time-consuming activity of clarifying user stories and ensuring that they are in line with your vision.
