Case Study: Setting a Scrum Team Up for Success


As part of a new platform build, our client — a leading U.S. healthcare provider — needed strong U.S. based development resources skilled in the modern technology practices and architecture to supplement their core policy administration team.  With offices across the country, the client has a highly distributed workforce. In this case, they needed to staff an onsite scrum team for a project located in a remote rural area, as well as a hybrid team model that could augment their existing workforce.

They needed staff with skill sets including:

  • SAFe
  • Scrum
  • Java
  • J2EE
  • JSP
  • EJB
  • Spring
  • Struts
  • REST
  • SOAP
  • PL/SQL
  • Oracle
  • CI/CT/CD
  • Jenkins
  • Cloud Technologies
  • Open Shift

The client’s sourcing efforts for professionals with agile skillsets had only limited success. So, given the limitations of the rural market, Collabera offered an alternative solution.

Our Solution

We built the client’s scrum team onsite at a Collabera facility in the desirable tech hub of Raleigh, N.C. — a hotbed for highly sought-after talent. We partnered with the client to provide not only top talent but also the space, equipment, and other infrastructure necessary for a fully fleshed-out team that could ramp up quickly for this healthcare giant’s six-month project.


Through this solution, Collabera offered flexible sourcing options that provided an ongoing stream of qualified candidates to mitigate turnover disruption and knowledge gaps that the client had experienced, including access to previously dedicated resources for continuity when possible as well as ensuring critical knowledge transfer between the contractual resources. Although colocation is a future priority for this leading healthcare client, Collabera stepped in to immediately fulfill their need for highly collaborative agile team and get the job done.
