Software & Process Management Leadership Guidance

We believe that projects are the anchor point in realizing a software vision. By focusing on projects as the vehicle for change the most abstract things will surface. We also do believe that chosen projects has to be visible for many stakeholders, both internally and externally Therefore we always encourage and help our customers to prioritize Business critical projects with high visibility within the organization to get the right management attention as they evolve in order to be successful and deal with new technology insertion in parallel. Process plays a key role to fine tune across project performance repeatedly.

We base our estimations  and implementations  on respected and accepted leading industry best practices for project performance. COCOMO II model for project estimation cut through the essence of all our developed collaterals tools, packages and services.

Below a simplified project estimation equation:

                                                    (Process)                               

Performance = Complexity     *      People * Tools

Process takes a vital part as a individual parameter in tackling Project performance.
