Broadsword to deliver CMMI+Scrum Learning Experience at SEPG NA 2012

19 January 2012

WATERFORD, MI: Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword) today announced that the firm will be offering its popular CMMI+Scrum Learning Experience class at the SEPG North America 2012 Conference on March 12-15, 2012, in Albuquerque, NM.  The SEPG is the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) flagship conference for engineering process improvement.

Broadsword president Jeff Dalton will lead the hands-on learning session with real-life stories, examples and games that demonstrate how the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), the leading framework for continuous improvement, can also be used to improve Agile methods.

As pioneers of the AgileCMMI methodology for company-wide process and performance improvement, Broadsword developed the CMMI+Scrum training to share insights, tools, tips and techniques to help engineers and executives understand how to take Scrum to the enterprise level and create an environment in which the whole company can use Scrum in every project successfully.

“Not everyone realizes that CMMI is fully compatible with Scrum and XP, and it fills in the blanks in a way that makes the investment in agile both powerful and productive,” Dalton said. “We use Scrum and CMMI to teach you about Scrum and CMMI - and how the CMMI can make it even better.”

2012 is the 7th consecutive year that Broadsword has been selected to speak at SEPG , but the first time to be delivering the CMMI+Scrum learning experience. The company is known for providing timely information that helps companies improve operational and engineering performance. Dalton has been voted a “Top 10 Speaker” at multiple SEPG conferences, and was keynote speaker at the International Conference on CMMI in Lima, Peru, in 2010.

“We believe the training offered by Jeff Dalton will make an immediate and long-lasting impact on the Partner and client communities attending this year’s conference,” SEPG NA Conference Coordinator Brittney Osikowicz, said. “Many agile shops unfortunately have not been getting anything close to the results they were hoping for. Developers, project managers and engineering executives can find solutions to that problem with CMMI+Scrum Learning Experience.”
