Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 238   

The Software Process and Measurement Cast features my interview with Bram Meyerson.  We discussed benchmarking.  Benchmarking is the process of knowing yourself and it is the first step in process improvement. 

Bram Meyerson is the founder and CEO of QuantiMetrics and QVIP. He holds a double major BSc degree in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science and an Honours degree in Computer Science, both from the University of the Witwatersrand.

For the last 20 years, Bram has managed and delivered a range of assessment and benchmarking services. In this role, Bram has worked closely with CIOs, IS directors and systems development managers in assessing, benchmarking and optimising their project performance. Currently much of this activity involves the ongoing independent assessment and benchmarking of supplier (outsourced) performance on behalf of IT user organisations.
