Development processes have a crucial impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization. Systematic process analysis and process assessment help you to understand where your organization is currently positioned in comparison to common practices, and where there are starting points for improvement. For, as Watts Humphrey already said: “If you don’t know where you are, a map won’t help”.
This is what we offer:
360° Analysis: Together with you we determine the areas that are to be subject of an investigation. 360° means that not only the processes themselves, but also artifacts and technologies from the development process are assessed with regard to predefined quality criteria. Based on this analysis, an end-to-end improvement strategy is developed and implemented in cooperation with you. As for which reference model to use, we will use what you tell us to.
Whether you want a general alignment with common industry practices or whether you are interested in state-of-the-art approaches – we will devise a suitable catalog of criteria with you.
We will also support you in your preparation for an assessment/appraisal in accordance with CMMI or SPICE (ISO/IEC 15504) by helping you identify showstoppers, and we will show you how these can be eliminated.
Together with you we will check your internal/external process interfaces and make improvement suggestions for optimizing workflows and improving process integration.
