Process Improvement Consulting

“In today’s software marketplace, the principal focus is on cost, schedule and function; quality is lost in the noise. This is unfortunate since poor quality performance is the root cause of most software cost, and schedule problems” – Watts Humphrey

  More than ever, companies want to deliver products and services better, faster, and cheaper. At the same time, in the high-technology environment of the twenty-first century, nearly all organizations have found themselves building increasingly complex products and services. Almost all companies are facing challenges, some of which are:

  • Rising costs
  • Requirements volatility
  • Task-based development approach
  • Problems in institutionalization of agile practices and sustained benefits.
  • No common process improvement framework across multiple disciplines
  • Low management visibility into progress
  • Sustainability issues

  Nihilent’s framework based process improvement approach  

The theories of process management are a synthesis of the concepts of Deming, Crosby, Juran, and others. Over the past 30 years, these theories have been used to address problems common to many organizations. Solutions have been discovered, but a gap existed between the state of the practice and the state of the art.  

Many of these concepts have been used to build process-improvement frameworks such as CMMI, ITIL, COBIT, and ISO etc. These frameworks are used as benchmarks to establish build and inculcate process culture that are aligned with business objectives.  

Nihilent’s process improvement offerings are based on the practitioners approach with a strong theoretical grounding. In other words, Nihilent walks the talk with its customers.
