UPDATE 3/20/2020

Artisan is going to continue to follow CDC and local government recommendations and remain working from home offices until further notice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To our clients –

COVID-19 is definitely impacting the world we all live in.  The last 24 hours has been dramatic, and we feel it is only prudent to issue a statement to all of you around how we are going to proceed forward with your projects.

The safety of our associates, their families, our clients, and community is our paramount concern.  Therefore, in an effort to help “Flatten the Curve” we are temporarily suspending all on-site client activity through March 29th.

Artisan associates will continue to work on your projects remotely from either the Artisan office or their homes.  Our associates have been instructed to attend presentations, requirements meetings, and other agile ceremonies (standups, sprint reviews, etc.) via teleconference or video conference.  We believe the biggest impact to working remote will be in the mentoring services we provide and some aspects of product management.  Our teams are working on alternative methods to deliver these services during this on-site restriction period.

We have asked our project teams to contact you directly to work out any details that are unique to your specific project.  You will be receiving communication from them later today or tomorrow regarding your project.  Please assist us in getting this communication in the hands of anyone we might have missed.

We will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.

Stay safe and thank you for your continued support.

Mike, Scott, Steve, and Elisa
