Software Development and Support Process Definition Services
Start-up, expansion stage and mature software companies alike are facing hyper-competitive markets. Such markets are characterized by:
Many software firms do not have well-defined and supported processes in place. Further, the lack of such defined and supported processes is a major impediment to a company's success in the market place. At INSTEP, we believe that process is not a rigid straitjacket that stifles the energy and creativity of the staff involved in creating your product. Process exists to build the product faster, better and cheaper. It is intended to reduce the unforeseen emergencies, reworks, and "fire-fighting" that characterizes too many organizations. The goal of process is to free your staff to exercise the ingenuity and imagination that create great products.
INSTEP's software development and support process definition services include:
Assessment and Improvement of Development, Services and Support Processes
INSTEP has identified ten key process areas that impact the efficiency, effectiveness, and scalability of taking products to market. Not all process areas are covered in every assessment; the scope of an assessment is defined based on the needs of the organization. The ten key process areas are:
Following the process assessment, INSTEP can contribute to the operations of our clients. This often involves the definition of commercial best-practice development processes, including templates, workflows, and guidelines. We work with internal and external teams to guide the implementation of improvement recommendations that arise from the assessment. INSTEP then develops metrics to assess and track the effectiveness and efficiency gains of our intervention. On occasion, our staff will perform interim executive operating roles and assist in the hiring of key permanent staff members.
