Software Process Improvement Support
It begins with an assessment of your current software development practices to determine the best fit, in terms of applicability and the order of implementation, of best practices to supplement current processes.  Key best practices are available to strengthen an organization’s software development processes and can be customized to your current needs and situation.


Workshops

Workshops are designed to help meet business, safety, quality, and regulatory requirements by showing how to meet these requirements by leveraging value-added industry best practices in various areas.


Workshops are typically conducted as half-day sessions starting with a brief tutorial highlighting the fundamental purpose, goals, and key elements of each of the best practice areas.  During the workshop, participants immediately apply the new best practice techniques to actual software project work products to experience the application and benefits of the best practice. The techniques are presented in a very easy, intuitive manner allowing quick application of the best practice. This is followed by a hands on set of activities that allow the participants to tailor the approach to fit as seamlessly as possible into current practices - it is important to insert best practices into current practices with minimal disruption. 


Private Internet-Based Workshop Tutorials(NEW!)

Shorter two-hour versions of the workshops are available by scheduling a private internet-based tutorial at a time that is convenient to you and your colleagues.

These cover the same fundamental concepts as the half-day workshops and allow for up to an hour of Q & A.  You can pay for these by credit card to simplify the process.
