Scrum uptake puts Clarus on growth track

Clarus has had to recruit four new staff members to cope with demand for assistance with Agile adoption and Scrum certification, the company has said.

According to Clarus, New Zealand companies including Trimble, Allied Telesis Labs NZ, Zeacom, Serato and Commtest have adopted Scrum to, among other aspects, increase team collaboration.

“Agile product development approaches such as ‘Scrum’ are being credited for increasing the likelihood of project success with delivery on time and to budget, and for mitigating delays and crisis points that can lead to project failure,” says Edwin Dando, Clarus’ managing director.

“A year ago many companies were making quick cutbacks to survive the recession crisis. Now they are taking the longer term view, fixing internal processes, introducing lean initiatives and investing in technologies to lay the infrastructure for future growth,” he adds. “We are seeing increasing demand for Scrum in New Zealand and expect 2011 to be a very busy year helping clients to accomplish some ambitious goals.”

To meet the increased demand, Clarus has recruited Sandy Purvis, business analyst; Jason Lai, software tester; Kate Shamy, associate manager; and Mike Styring, business development manager. These new additions bring the Clarus team to 11. This brings the Clarus team to 11.
