...WHo Will Keep Your Team Awake

We play game shows! We play music! We don't play death-by-slide! All with an instructor so passionately engaging that he's featured in a book: Tickers: What Makes People... Tick! And Pursue a Career They Love!

...and Help Them to APPRECIATE the Model

We emphasize the use of CMMI to improve performance -- not to build mountains of shelfware. We'll provide plenty of examples and "war stories" from our own experience, all so you can make your organization better -- not just compliant. People literally walk out of our classes excited about the model!

Private vs. Public

Why You Might Want a Private Class...

For larger class sizes, perhaps 6-8 or more, it may simply be more cost-effective for us to come to you.

Cost advantages:

  • Lower travel expenses (paying only for one instructor, rather than all of your students)

  • Low incremental price (encourages training people you otherwise could not afford to)

Other factors:

  • More convenient for your employees

  • More control over dates (subject to availability)

  • More targeted class discussions (drawing on examples from your organization)

  • Increased accessibility of your employees to their work environment (during breaks)

...And Why A Public Class COuld be Better

Consider public classes if you're local to the DC area or have fewer than 6-8 students.

Cost advantages:

  • Probably much lower per-student cost (for a small class)

  • We pay for food and beverages

Other factors:

  • We provide the space and all equipment

  • Ability to spread students across multiple class dates (to fit their schedules)

  • Fewer work-related distractions

  • Less "group-think" and more sharing of new ideas (as your students work with people from other companies)

  • More people in class = more examples from students rather than just the instructor
