Process & Methodology Workshops

Process Workshops

SEI CMM integrated – lean application (Capability Maturity Model)

  • Suitable Audience – IT Managers, Project and team managers, Quality Team
  • Designed for software professionals to understand SEI Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI) for Software. Developed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the CMMI is the most widely accepted framework for assessing, managing, and improving an organization’s software development process.
  • There is a widespread perception that CMMi is a heavy model that can add substantial costs for deployment. The workshop will provide a detailed introduction to the structure of the CMMI, the key process areas at each maturity level and a lean application of these that will not jeopardize the model requirements but yet be optimal in its roadmap.

 ISACA – COBIT (Control Objectives for IT)

  • IT Leaders, Project Managers, Quality Team, Auditors
  • COBIT provides a generic process model that represents all the processes normally found in IT, providing a common reference model understandable to operational IT and business managers. The COBIT process model has been mapped to the IT governance focus areas, providing a bridge between what operational managers need to execute and what executives wish to govern. COBIT is focused on what is required to achieve adequate management and control of IT, and is positioned at a high level. COBIT has been aligned and harmonized with other, more detailed, IT standards and best practices. COBIT acts as an integrator of these different guidance materials, summarizing key objectives under one umbrella framework that also links to governance and business requirements.
  • The training will provide an understanding of the COBIT framework, the benefits of a governance framework for IT for better with business focus, clear ownership and responsibilities, process orientation, general acceptability with regulators and shared understanding amongst stakeholders, based on a common language.  

Methodology Workshops

 Applying Agile practices to Software Projects

  • Senior Managers, Programme and Project managers
  • Is your organization challenged by growth and product complexity? Are quality and product adaptability declining? Is your ability to reliably deliver results hindered by an erosion of technical skills and domain knowledge? Are you considering agile project management and/or software development practices to help you overcome these challenges?
  • Incorporating agile practices into your product development process will help you reduce product defects, improve productivity increase innovation, save costs, shorten time to market, pay down design debt , improve team collaboration, and more. 
  • This workshop on Agile Methodologies and Techniques will enable you to provide your organization with experienced, hands-on assistance to jumpstart and guide your transition to Agile methods.

 Effective Software Project Management

  • Project & Team Managers 
  • A project needs to be well planned and controlled. History has shown that achieving success in projects is not an easy task, and spectacular failures exist in all disciplines. To ensure a project is successful, adequate attention must be given to each stage. If business needs are not clear there is no basis for specifying a solution and clearly, there is no point in delivering a solution, no matter how innovative, if it cannot be used to deliver real and lasting benefits. 
  • This workshop present a comprehensive view of standards, a view of the lifecycle and best practices in the IT industry combining the best of breed process from PMI and OGC standards


Enterprise Risk Management – A Practical Workshop for Software Engineering

  • Project and Team Managers, Risk Managers 
  • A formal risk management process requires corporate acceptance of risk as a major consideration for software program management, commitment of program resources, and formal methods for identifying, monitoring, and managing risk. 
  • A commonly accepted approach for risk analysis starts from the valuation of assets, vulnerability analysis, threats which can exploit vulnerability, the probability of the threat, the degree of vulnerability, the severity of the impact to conclude the risk assessment. This is followed by the selection of countermeasures and an evaluation of their effectiveness, which also identifies residual risk. 
  • This workshop endeavors to present a comprehensive view of risk management, operational risk, standards such as SOX and BASEL, a detailed view of the lifecycle and best practices in the industry.
