Jon Raab is a passionate technologist and with over 15 years experience in software design and implementation, he’s also a huge Scrum advocate. Jon is the CTO of adgistics Ltd, a successful software company supplying applications to major brands such as Vodafone, Ford, adidas and Intercontinental.
Having spent 2 years implementing and refining the scrum practices at Adgistics, the real benefits of Scrum are readily apparent. Improved quality, engaged product owners and developers mean successful releases, leading to happier clients and increased profits.
It's not all been plain sailing though, Scrum affects every facet of our business, from sales to finance (not to mention the stationary budget ;) ). We've implemented changes across the whole organisation and solved problems we didn't even know existed.
The power of our process now defines who we are and is a big part of our commercial success. It's incorporated in our sales messages and our HR processes and, as a result, adgistics has enjoyed fantastic growth in revenue and profits.
