Award winning Leeds agile firm celebrates 100th team member

A Leeds-based agile business transformation specialist, with an annual turnover of £16 million just over three years after start-up, has celebrated the appointment of its 100th recruit.

Burendo provides clients in the UK and overseas with experts skilled in tackling software development challenges in short sprints before rapidly reviewing the results to determine the next step in the project.

Last month the consultancy triumphed in the International category at the Leeds Digital Festival Awards 2021 following its work to design and deliver an agile operating model to US pharmaceutical giant McKesson.

In addition to running training sessions for hundreds of McKesson’s staff, Burendo team members devised a tailored solution for the RelayHealth division of McKesson which focussed on the reduction of its delivery cycle from 18 months to just three months.

Burendo was founded in 2018 by Gary Green, Austen Bell and Glenn Crossley who also collaborated to launch the Blended Agile Delivery (BAD) Toolkit, providing open access to agile techniques and processes.

Despite the considerable obstacles to growth posed to many businesses by the pandemic, Burendo has continued to gain new clients and expand employee numbers.

Speaking at a special event in Leeds to mark the recruitment of the firm’s 100th team member, Gary Green, People Director, said:

“We are proud of every one of our team and delighted to celebrate this landmark moment.”
