Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 176!
The SPaMCAST 176 features an my interview with Jeff Dalton. We discussed Agile, Scrum and the CMMI. A discussion that included more than just theory. Jeff is Broadsword’s President, Certified Lead Appraiser, CMMI Instructor, a Pilot, ScrumMaster and author of “agileCMMI,” Broadsword’s leading methodology for incremental and iterative process improvement. He is the 2012 Chairman of the SEI’s Partner Advisory Board and President of the Great Lakes Software Process Improvement Network (GL-SPIN). In 2008 he coined the term Process Debt to describe the crushing, over-bearing processes too many companies employ to achieve a CMMI rating. In 2009 he was awarded the prestigious Software Engineering Institute’s SEI Member Award for Outstanding Representative for is 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.
