A Business Case for Improved Practices

Though most IT organizations could benefit from changes in their approach to building software, few attempt to change. Even fewer manage to sustain the effort to realize the benefits. One of the reasons for maintaining the status quo is that the true costs of poor practices are seldom quantified, let alone exposed to most decision makers. This discussion identifies a model for quantifying these costs associated with inefficiencies that most development groups consider normal. It shows that with very modest improvement goals, significant savings can be achieved. This business case affirms that most groups should start on the path of continuous improvement today.

    Fantastic article [on change management]. We have extended our project tracking system as per our meeting [with Clarrus] earlier this year, and many of our change management issues/problems disappeared – some of them literally overnight.
