Agile Process Improvement
To SQE Consulting, process improvement is combining the art of balance and the science of industry best practices together to improve business results.
Improve your software development, software security, and quality assurance processes using SQE Consulting’s proprietary process improvement framework. SQE Consulting understands that the development of an efficient and repeatable process requires balancing the rigor of best practices with creative freedom for team members. Our consultants are expert at striking this balance as they tailor industry best practices to meet organizational and domain-specific demands.
Traditional process improvement approaches attempt to apply "best case best practices" to your organization with insufficient regard to critical variables that will govern success. Examples are: focusing on process for the sake of process as opposed to achieve a business objective; believing that every organization has an equal capacity to adopt change; and too little focus on measurement of improvements to value their results. At SQE Consulting we apply an agile approach to improving process:
- Learn and Listen: This is a structured assessment of the current state of your process. We gather information and data, validate the stated business goals, and seek to understand risks created via known limitations. SQE Consulting then assembles this information into an assessment of the current state of your organization.
- Gap Analysis: We'll analyze your current state against industry best practices, standards, and your desired business objective to clearly articulate gaps from current state to desired state to achieve your business goals.
- Envision and Plan: Armed with detailed knowledge of gaps needing to be addressed to move a process to a state of higher maturity, SQE Consulting develops a strategy and actionable implementation road map while working with you to prioritize the highest value process changes first.
- Build and Pilot: SQE Consulting will build the required new process components, integrate them into your process, train your team, and perform a pilot to test results.
- Enterprise Deployment: We will work with you to deploy process changes across your enterprise that have been constructed in context of your desired business result, tested in a pilot, and designed to be implemented via a structured change management program to maximize results.
