Listen to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 285. SPaMCAST 285 features a compilation of frequently asked questions of a consulting kind. Working as a traveling consultant, podcaster and blogger provides me with a fabulous mix of experiences. Meeting new people and getting to participate in a wide range of real life experiences is mind expanding and invigorating. Many of the questions that I have been asked during a client engagement, on the blog or in response to a podcast have similar themes. Since most of the answers were provided in one-on-one interactions I have compiled a few of the questions to share. If these questions spark more questions I promise to circle back and add to the FAQ list!
The SPaMCAST 285 also features Kim Pries’s column, The Software Sensei. In this edition, Kim tackles the concept of failure mode and effects.

Next week we will feature an interview with Brian Wernham author or Agile Project Management for Government. Combining Agile and government used in the same phrase does not have to be an oxymoron.
