Broadsword to Deliver CMMI+Scrum Learning Experience at both SEPGNA 2012 and SEPG Europe 2012

5 March 2012

WATERFORD, MI - Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword) today announced that the firm has been selected to present its popular CMMI+Scrum Learning Experience class at two industry-leading events this spring.  The first training class will be offered at the SEPG North America 2012 Conference on March 12-15, 2012 in Albuquerque, NM.  The second training class will be offered at the SEPG Europe Conference on June 5-7, 2012 in Madrid, Spain.  The SEPG is the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) flagship conference for engineering in process improvement.

At both Conferences, Broadsword president Jeff Dalton will lead the hands-on learning session with real-life stories, examples and games that demonstrate how the Capabilities 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.

"Our goal is to make an immediate and long-lasting impact for the North American and European Partner and client communities," Dalton said.  "We have a lot of experience working at all levels of organizations, and this collaborative 2-day workshop is designed for everyone from engineering executives to project managers and developers to receive hands-on, practical experience using Scrum, so that they can make Scrum better in their organizations with the CMMI."

The two events in 2012 mark the 7th consecutive year that Broadsword has been selected to speak at SEPG, but just the first and second times it will be delivering the CMMI+Scrum learning experience to the SEPG community.  The company is known for providing timely information that helps companies improve 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.
