WHY CHoose Us?
a Seasoned Instructor...
Nationally recognized instructor Bill Smith has averaged a stellar 4.9+ (out of 5) student feedback rating while teaching over 225 certified CMMI classes to more than 3500 students. His private classes have earned multiple, on-the-spot customer awards.
...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.
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)
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.
Probably much lower per-student cost (for a small class)
We pay for food and beverages
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
