Warning: We are enthusiastic about the methods we develop, and when we teach - that enthusiasm is contagious.
Do you want your people to:
a. learn how to write requirements intelligently?
b. manage projects that deliver great results on time and within budgets?
c. quality control their documents in such a way that development time is reduced substantially?
d. improve your authoring processes through defect prevention?
No, none of the above! then move on from this page.
Yes! then we have something to offer.
We have the knowledge and the experience to teach courses with such an impact that the course participants will cherish the course throughout their career.
We hold courses in the topics we personally develop. See Methods.
Typical topics are: Requirements, Design, Architecture, Evo Project Management, Spec QC and Extreme Inspection.
Then the courses are targeted to a group. Typical groups are: CEO / board members , Top Level Managers , Product Managers, General Managers , Testers , Quality Assurance, SW Engineers, Architects, Engineers.
Each group has special needs, and we customize the course content, slides, language, workshops accordingly.
Sometimes we have mixed groups, and that has its benefits as well.
The longer the course duration, the more your team can learn, and the better they will be armed to make real substantial change in their work environment.
The longer the course duration, the harder it is to get good people to attend;-)
So we will help you strike a balance. We will work with whatever length we are given.
Typical course durations are:
The less time the course participants get, the less time they have to learn to apply the methods. I.e. we can, and sometimes do, hold a 3-hour Requirement 'course', in that time we manage to awaken an interest, show them some examples, and show them what to read if they want to learn more. If they get 3 days, they get time for lots of practical workshops, on their own material, meeting and tackling real work challenges, etc.
Customize to fit your needs
We will customize any course, so the course participants can get the most value for their time. Talk to us about your needs, and we will find a way to fulfill it.
Much of the customizing happens in the workshops. We highly recommend that the course participants bring in real work, that way they are faced with their real, day-to-day challenges.

You will learn
• You will learn a systematic method for planning any project, which focuses on the customer end-results, rather than technical construction details.
Example: Agile Spec QC / Extreme Inspection Course - Schedule Highlights
• A case study of requirements SQC at a major multinational: how to predict project delays at the beginning, correctly.
What you will learn
The Specification Quality Control (SQC) process the Gilbs teach, is the most effective available today, in the world of systems and software engineering. Based on the latest ‘agile’ version, this SQC Inspection Process course will show you:
