Services with an edge
Whether you just need a CMMI appraisal, are looking for some CMMI or Scrum Training, or are seeking to improve software and engineering performance, Broadsword uses a double-edged approach to get results quickly.
On the downstroke, we drop the weight of our sharp, professionally packaged solutions. Each solution includes methods, techniques, and tools that have worked for hundreds of companies and are customizable for you. On the upstroke, we clear away obstacles, roadblocks and threats before you even see them coming.
Broadsword does it all. We offer a range of solutions from our agileCMMI Methodology to our CMMI Accelerator product, from SCAMPI Appraisals to CMMI training and CMMI consulting. Our agileSCAMPI method streamlines appraisals to make them more useful and efficient. Our experience is deep in fields such as management consulting, engineering, project management and process improvement. We don’t do what you do. We help you do it better.

Appraisals for the way you do business.
Broadsword makes appraisals easier for you. We’re an SEI and CMMI Institute Partner licensed to perform all classes of SCAMPI Appraisals for CMMI-DEV and CMMI-SVC.
We’ve been there – right where you are. Every one of our consultants has been an engineer, a software developer, or a project manager and knows what it’s like to adopt processes and be appraised. Our approach to appraisals is just enough – not too much.
Though proud of our advanced degrees and training from prestigious universities, the Broadsword team takes a practical, not academic, approach to problem solving. Because we’ve seen engineering work done so many different ways over the years, we understand what you go through every day. As a result, we don’t try to fit you into the CMMI model. We make the CMMI fit into you.

agileCMMI is an incremental and iterative method that leads you directly down the path to greatness. Our branded approach allows organizations to build things, pilot them, learn as they go, get feedback, determine what changes to make and make them. Because agileCMMI calls for performing incremental actions and building upon everything that has come before, work is done in short iterations. Your organization goes through an incremental and iterative process over time, until you have a complete, high performing engineering process.
