Why We Started Conduo
Our journey as leaders and project managers, navigating change-resistant cultures, seemingly impossible project timelines, and learning how to create big wins through creative problem-solving led us to create a vision for how we could use what we have learned to help others facing similar challenges.
We love tackling problems that seem un-solvable!MEET WITH US
In 2007, Ryan was leading an ambitious project at a State Health and Human Services Agency, and Julie joined as a product owner. We cut our teeth on this project, introducing Agile project management to the Agency and leading efforts to align automation with the operational redesign.
Despite many challenges, the project was highly successful and lauded as the "least expensive and quickest" eligibility case management system replacement in the nation.
Ryan went on to work as an enterprise Agile coach for a number of organizations, while Julie moved into a leadership role, developing Lean/Agile culture and practices across business and IT teams. We rejoined efforts in 2013, partnering to help implement the Affordable Care Act in Idaho.
Idaho was the first state to transition from the Federal to a State-based Exchange. This required innovative leadership and problem-solving and was successful despite technical, organizational and political roadblocks.
We made the leap in 2017 to establish Conduo, and have had the privilege of working with many inspired and motivated leaders who share our vision for what is possible with new ways of working. In addition to our experience with the public sector, we have worked in a wide variety of industries, including finance, banking, telecomm, insurance, consumer products and start-ups.
