CASE STUDY CAREERBUILDER GAINS BETTER VISIBILITY OF COMPLEX AGILE PROJECTS CHALLENGES CareerBuilder offers end-to-end human capital solutions and has the largest online job site in the United States with Agile teams around the world. Initially, CareerBuilder's Agile teams were using whiteboards and post-it notes to manage projects. The CIO saw the success of these teams and decided to scale agile across the entire IT organization. This created multiple remote teams and the manual nature of tracking work simply could not scale. They tried to use some non-agile project management tools they already had in place, but nothing replicated the success they had using whiteboards and post- it notes. They needed an online solution that reproduced the visual and tactile benefits of physically moving cards across a whiteboard in front of their teams. SOLUTION After an extensive evaluation of several leading Agile Management platforms, CareerBuilder was confident that VersionOne provided the best combination of online boards, custom workflows and access to the data. The online boards and custom workflows enabled the remote teams to replicate the success they had with collocated teams and the data allowed them to track progress in ways they could not with whiteboards and post-it notes. IMPROVED VISIBILITY INTO PROJECTS SCALED AGILE ACROSS GLOBAL IT ORGANIZATION HIGHLIGHTS DECREASED DEFECTS 25% ENHANCED TRACKING OF KEY METRICS BENEFITS "Before VersionOne they could not efficiently track metrics, but now CareerBuilder is able to help individual teams continually improve quality," said Andy Krupit, manager, Agile development, at "In fact, since we've implemented VersionOne, defects have decreased 25%." "VersionOne provides everyone, from executives to developers, visibility into how we are progressing toward our business goals."
