Our Perspective

No one would set out to climb a mountain without detailed planning, proper equipment, adequate provisions and an expert lead climber. The harsh realities of failure lead naturally to contingency and risk planning. An understanding of the vagaries of weather or rock conditions leads to continuous re-evaluation throughout the climb. A successful climb requires planning, skill, commitment and flexibility.

Mountain climbing makes an excellent metaphor for software development. Planning, skill, experience and adaptability are the pre-requisites of a successful development project. Yet, many organizations start high-speed, high-change development projects without knowing how to do them and even worse, without knowing they don't know. Successful completion of these projects is often at the expense of the project team.

Project failure not only destroys team morale, it's costly to the "bottom" line. With the cost per SLOC averaging between $20.00 - $40.00 and skilled developers in short supply, you need to get it right the first time - on time and on budget.
