The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Software Metrics specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Software Metrics Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 1000 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Software Metrics improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 1000 standard requirements:

  1. Management buy-in is a concern. Many program managers are worried that upper-level management would ask for progress reports and productivity metrics that would be hard to gather in an Agile work environment. Management ignorance of Agile methodologies is also a worry. Will Agile advantages be able to overcome the well-known existing problems in software development?

  2. Does it replace or negate traditional project management concerns with risk, scheduling, metrics, and execution, or does it shift how you think about these and necessitate new techniques and approaches?

  3. Software testing must be one of the most creative professions. Compare for instance with the idea that programming is creative; which takes more creativity: creating the error or finding the error?

  4. Do you want anyone to be able to use the software for any purpose, including creating divergent incompatible proprietary versions and proprietary modules inside larger proprietary programs?

  5. Do you measure the responsiveness and quality provided to your stakeholders. Have commitments been met, software deployed, response times honored, processes documented, training completed?

  6. How will your investment in a software assessment process, as part of a process improvement program, help you improve your abilities as a manager to reach the goals of your organization?

  7. How often do you reconcile software inventories with other sources to verify the accuracy of assumed license metrics (for example user counts based on HR employee records)?

  8. Does your Black-box testing ignore the internal logic of the software, and looks at what happens at the interface e.g., given this inputs, was the produced output correct?

  9. Is a validation test suite or diagnostic available to validate that the application software is operating correctly and in a secure configuration following installation?

  10. Does the softwares exception-handling mechanism prevent all faults from leaving the software, its resources, and its data (in memory and on disk) in a vulnerable state?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Software Metrics book in PDF containing 1000 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Software Metrics projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Software Metrics Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 Software Metrics project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Variance Analysis: Does the accounting system provide a basis for auditing records of direct costs chargeable to the contract?

  2. Stakeholder Management Plan: Have all documents been archived in a Software Metrics project repository for each release?

  3. Team Member Performance Assessment: What stakeholders must be involved in the development and oversight of the performance plan?

  4. Scope Management Plan: Does the implementation plan have an appropriate division of responsibilities?

  5. Activity Duration Estimates: What is the duration of the critical path for this Software Metrics project?

  6. Formal Acceptance: Is formal acceptance of the Software Metrics project product documented and distributed?

  7. Schedule Management Plan: Are the processes for schedule assessment and analysis defined?

  8. Human Resource Management Plan: Have stakeholder accountabilities & responsibilities been clearly defined?

  9. Team Operating Agreement: Are there more than two national cultures represented by your team?

  10. Activity Duration Estimates: What are the ways to create and distribute Software Metrics project performance information?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Software Metrics project with this in-depth Software Metrics Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Software Metrics projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Software Metrics and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Software Metrics investments work better.

This Software Metrics All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
