SPaMCAST 296 – Jeff Dalton, CMMI, Agile, Resiliency

SPaMCAST 296 features our interview with Jeff Dalton we talked about Agile and resiliency. If Agile is resilient it will be able spring back into shape after being bent or compressed by the pressures of development and support.  In the conversation Jeff and I discussed whether Agile was resilient and how frameworks like the CMMI can be used to make Agile more resilient.

Jeff is Broadsword’s President, Certified Lead Appraiser, CMMI Instructor, ScrumMaster and author of “agileCMMI,” Broadsword’s leading methodology for incremental and iterative process improvement.  He is Chairman of the CMMI Institute’s Partner Advisory Board and former President of the Great Lakes Software Process Improvement Network (GL-SPIN).  He is a recipient of the Software Engineering Institute’s SEI Member Award for Outstanding Representative for his work uniting the Agile and CMMI communities together through his popular blog “Ask the CMMI Appraiser.”  He holds degrees in Music and Computer Science and builds experimental airplanes in his spare time.  You can reach Jeff at appraiser@broadswordsolutions.com.

SPaMCAST 149 - CMMI Readiness Checklist

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 149!

The SPaMCAST 149 features my simple checklist focusing on CMMI Readiness.  We look at three categories in this checklist; resources, plans and attitude.  Even if you are not contemplating the CMMI this checklist will be of interest.

THe SPaMCAST 149 is sponsored by LeanKit Kanban. LeanKit Kanban is a software tool for kanban that is as simple to use as physical kanban. If you put it up on a touchscreen in your team area, it practically IS physical kanban. But your boards are available from anywhere, and updated in real-time. A slew of colors, icons, and avatars take your visual signaling to the next level. And the system tracks the metrics for you, providing analytics on bottlenecks, lead time, work distribution, process efficiency, and variability - for a single board or a whole company. It's kanban for the Lean enterprise. 

I have been using LeanKit Kanban for a personal project my wife and I are working on.  This week I was in Canada and we could share the kanban board across the miles with ease!

SPaMCAST 143 - Do You Have Management Support?

Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 143!

In the SPaMCAST 143, I ask, "Do you have management support?" I recently asked many of my colleagues what they thought were the precursors to beginning a CMMI change program. Almost to a person, they began their list with senior management support which makes sense as the CMMI has become the top-down process improvement framework of choice.

The essay examines the difference perspective between velcocity and productivity.  They are similar concepts that if addressed carefully can both be collected and used without additional effort.  It is like having your cake and eating it too!

I want your help!  I would like each SPaMCAST listener to invite one new listener to listen to the cast.  Walk over to their PC, show them how to set up ITunes or your favorite pod catcher and then subscribe them to the SPaMCAST.  When your done call the listener line (206) 888-6111 tell me the story (I will share the stories on a future cast).  Better yet I will select the best (or maybe a few best) stories and invite you to participate on a future cast!
