Education Philosophy

We know our clients are smart people looking for better ways to do their jobs. If we provide good tools and show our clients how to use them effectively, they become better problem solvers and can achieve extraordinary results. Training is the key ingredient that allows excellence in any line of work.

Our Software Estimation and Control Course focuses on building practical skills you can apply as soon as you return to your business. We keep class sizes small in order to provide students with individual coaching. We often work with students in class to analyze their current projects.

Our Metrics and Benchmarking Course covers QSM's SLIM (Software Lifecycle Management) methodology and its application to software measurement, data collection, and benchmarking. QSM's SLIM-Metrics product is featured in a highly interactive and hands-on learning environment.
