There are no shortages of good ideas in software management and engineering, but few are practiced. We focus on deployment, implementation, transition: putting best practices into actual practice. We concentrate on selecting those best practices best suited to our clients and then helping them change in order to deploy those practices.
We offer advisory services related to software improvement. Our specialty is helping organizations change the ways they work, particularly with respect to model-based improvement initiatives (SEI CMM/CMMI, ISO 9000, ISO 12207, Baldrige).
We use a mutual adaptation approach: the organization has to change to accommodate the technology, and the technology has to be tailored to accommodate the organization.
Along with our work on implementation, we have developed a method of getting critical, large projects out of hot water. These are the projects that must be completed and have run into difficulty. They tend to involve multiple departments and providers, be geographically distributed, and are under tight schedule constraints. Read more at How to rescue "bet the company" projects.
