Recommendations

Finding and realizing the value of ongoing process improvement requires companies to build a foundation where it can thrive – now and in the future. Advantu has identified five steps that firms can take now to lay the groundwork:

  1. Move beyond working longer hours or throwing bodies at late projects to meet deadlines.  Where are your strengths and challenges when it comes to software development velocity?  What do you need to do to close the gap between where you are now and where you need to be?
  2. Redefine the skill sets of your core team. Identify where you can update capabilities via hiring and training, both onsite and online.
  3. Begin, then iterate from there. The only way to master ongoing process improvement is to begin. Create and execute proofs of concept rapidly to start realizing value.
  4. Set parameters for your new process. As your ongoing process improvement becomes more pervasive within the company, communications, training and team building will be increasingly important.
