There are no shortages of good ideas in systems and software management and engineering, but few are practiced. We focus on adoption, deployment, implementation, transition: putting best practices into actual practice. We concentrate on selecting those practices best suited to our clients and then helping them improve in order to deploy those practices.
We offer advisory services related to systems and software improvement. Our specialty is helping organizations change the ways they work, particularly with respect to model-based improvement initiatives (SEI CMM/CMMIs, ISO 9000, ISO 12207, Baldrige, etc.).
We use a mutual adaptation approach: the organization changes to accommodate the technology, and the technology is 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.
