Dave Rosen, CEO of X-Team, today announced on the X-Team blog that X-Team is being split into two separate companies “to remain focused and agile”. X-Team International Pty Ltd will focus on “developer resourcing” (i.e. providing developers to other agencies and development shops), while X-Team WP Pty Ltd (note the “WP”) will focus on “Enterprise WordPress solutions”.
Dave explains that they decided to split into two separate companies in order to remain agile, rather than dealing with their growth by adding structure and management levels:
The split is also inspired by our belief in effective teams. Great teams need to be at a size where everyone is in sync. As more and more superheroes have joined X-Team, our company size simply got too big. Rather than enforce growth through structure, management and meetings we’ve chosen to keep our agility and ensure each company is at a size where everyone is on the playing field.
