Lunch and Learn: Quality with Speed – A Paradigm Shift in Managing Projects

Ascendum, September 16, 2014,

Tim Coulson, our Senior Practice Director of Quality Assurance, presented at this Lunch and Learn at the Arizona Technology Council in Scottsdale, AZ on September 16th.

The presentation consisted of two proven techniques that have proven to reduce the total cost of ownership, and increase the speed to market for those developing software regardless of the development model (Waterfall or Agile). The complementary techniques enable developers to work more effectively and efficiently while creating a cohesive whole across the organization. These techniques (when used together) can reduce the average rework associated with software development from 45% to 20% in most cases, and has shown to improve product adoption by as much as 30%. Quality with Speed ensures team collaboration from product design through a risk and marginal analysis approach to testing software. No more ambiguity between team members, while clearly articulating risks to ensure minimal exposure to the business benefits of the effort.
