13 December 2011

ROCKVILLE, MD: ADNET, Systems, Inc (ADNET) – an award-winning federal contractor that provides IT services to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Interior – and Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword), pioneers of the leading methodology for incremental and iterative process improvement, today announced a strategic partnership to assist ADNET in expanding their commitment to continuous improvement, using the Software Engineering Institute’s (SEI) Capabilities Maturity Model Integration, or CMMI.

This passion has been driving them to scale their culture of operational excellence as the company continues to grow.
