SPaMCast is an industry-leading podcast which explores the dynamic world of software process improvement and measurement.  The cast covers topics that deal with the challenges found in information technology organizations as they grow and evolve.  Tom Cagley, editor of SPaMCast, and Dalton will discuss agile, Scrum and the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), the leading model for engineering performance improvement.

Broadsword, an SEI Partner, is the world leader in delivering agile solutions that integrate agile methods with the CMMI.  Its popular 2-day "Scrum+CMMI Learning Experience" class teaches attendees to use the CMMI to make Scrum projects better.

"Tom's webcast has always been such a great place to learn from industry leaders.  I'm honored to be a guest of SPaMCast and to discuss such a timely and important topic," Dalton said.  "As Scrum is gaining in popularity in the software and engineering worlds, many companies are not getting the results they had hoped for.  SPaMCast listeners will learn that the CMMI is fully compatible with Scrum, and can be used to improve agile methods, making the investment in agile both powerful and productive."
