Since pioneering the concept of using Agile methods for sustainable process improvement, Broadsword has seen its agileCMMI methodology develop into a well-defined, mature method for continuous improvement in technology organizations worldwide.
In a nutshell, agileCMMI is an incremental and iterative methodology that helps you deploy processes that are “Just Enough-Not Too Much.” Our branded approach allows organizations to build processes incrementally, pilot them, learn as they go, try them out, get feedback, determine what changes are needed, and deploy them all in a structured, iterative environment. Because agileCMMI calls for performing small incremental actions and building upon everything that has come before, work is done in short iterations and “Process Debt” is avoided. Your organization goes through incremental changes over time, until you have a complete sustainable engineering process.
Compare this method to the traditional way of developing an end-to-end engineering process. In the traditional manner, somebody writes a huge manual, drops it on the heads of all the engineers and says, “Here’s how you are supposed to do your work.” Not surprisingly, this approach is most common and in most organizations, has not been successful. Smart people will reject processes that they weren’t a part of creating.
Broadsword’s agileCMMI methodology is different in that it involves all practitioners in the organization in a structured way. Anyone who plays a role in the engineering process will have a role in defining it. Broadsword helps you work incrementally to get what you really need: Greater clarity, better results and a faster journey toward continuous process improvement.
