Processes are the core of an efficient and effective organization. At Fraunhofer IESE, we have been dealing with approaches for the analysis and improvement of processes based on best practices and measurement data for more than 20 years. Whether agile or plan-based processes, software measurement with GQM or the use of Big Data: Take advantage of our vast practical experience and our state-of-the-art research findings.


Process Management Leads to Sustainable Success

Processes are the basis of an efficient and effective organization.

  • We have been dealing with approaches for the analysis and improvement of processes for more than 20 years.
  • We use best practices to systematically gather experience regarding process components and we use data to recognize patterns and enable objective decision-making.

Process Analysis and Process Assessment

“If you don’t know where you are, a map won’t help” (Watts Humphrey)

  • Development processes are a crucial determinant for efficiency and effectiveness.
  • But where are the strengths and weaknesses, and what are possible improvement measures?
  • We help you identify improvement potential for your development process.

Agile Transition

The introduction of agile development methods helps, e.g., to bring innovations to the market faster.

  • But how does this go together with the development of complex products and regulatory requirements?
  • We support you in the introduction of agile methods and individual practices, taking into account regulatory requirements such as Automotive SPICE.

Measurement and Performance Indicators

“You can't control what you can't measure” (Tom DeMarco)

  • Measurement data and performance indicators make workflows transparent.
  • But which data do you need and which can you do without?
  • As co-inventor of goal-oriented measurement with GQM and GQM+Strategies®, we support you in eliciting suitable data and bringing order to the pandemonium of existing KPIs.

Big Data Potential and Data Analytics

Big Data – hype or success factor for the future?

  • Big Data technologies are a dime a dozen.
  • But is Big Data only a hype, or is there any specific potential for your company?
  • We help you determine this potential, select appropriate technologies, and thoroughly test your ideas in our Big Data Lab.

Seminars and Workshops

  • For more than 20 years, we have been offering comprehensive seminars and workshops on various topics related to process improvement.
  • We will gladly adapt to your wishes and will put together a program that is customized to your needs.
