QSM helps turn software estimation into a central business process.
Designed for: Organizations with ongoing software development activities.
Ongoing software development activities need scalable estimation support.
At QSM, we specialize in helping organizations design, develop, deploy and sustain the robust, comprehensive estimation capabilities they’ll need to support a growing, thriving software development enterprise.
We’ll help you find the right people, impart the skills they’ll need to be successful, develop processes for more effective decision making, and build-out the operational analytics framework of an enterprise-grade Estimation Center of Excellence (ECoE).
We identify the pain points of the organization and the ECOE stakeholders. Then we do a maturity assessment, build a ECOE charter, and develop a change management strategy.
We design and develop a detailed set of business practices, identify and train the ECOE staff, and configure the tools to support a robust business decision making process.
We pilot the ECOE and work out any operational issues before moving to full production.
We move to full operational status and support all aspects of estimation and business decision making

We offer a variety of industrial-strength solutions to meet all needs and budget requirements, including complete solutions, “lite” versions, and incremental build-outs.
We typically recommend a staged implementation, as it enables a client to realize significant value while getting to know our process. We also suggest working with us on a single project, to start. You’ll get a good feel for QSM consulting, its benefits, and its suitability for your organization.
