Software Engineering Management Services
We can help you deliver quality software on time and to budget.
It can be done. We have methods which have proven themselves again and again. They aren't complicated. They can be introduced gradually. They can be used for new projects, or introduced in existing projects at any stage. They can turn around failing projects.
The key to project success is to get everyone focussed on the project goals. Everyone's effort — both intelligence and activity — needs to be directed toward achieving those goals. Does your team know what your goals are?
It's never too late to apply goal setting and evolutionary planning to a project. These practices can help your project out of the swamp by cutting through to the most important tasks and focussing on delivering something that meets the most important requirements.
Industry standards such as the CMM can help you find the holes in your working practices. We can help you fill in the gaps with practical methods; see our white paper "Product Quality through Change Management".
We have years of expertise in software development at all levels from hacker to vice president. We have turned around failing projects. We have organized chaotic teams so that they're making regular deliveries with ever increasing quality.
