Evolutionary development (Evo) focuses on early delivery of high value to stakeholders, and on obtaining and utilizing feedback from stakeholders. This paper describes from a project manager’s viewpoint, the positive experiences that one organization rapidly achieved on switching from using the Waterfall method to Evo. Major benefit came from paying greater attention to the quality requirements as opposed to the previous practice of concentrating solely on the required functionality.

Reduction of technical debt is best accomplished by systematic engineering, and iterative reduction. Engineering means setting several quantified quality requirements like Maintainability, Testability,Portability. Then empowering your team to find technical solutions, implement them, and measure progress. Confirmit in Oslo pioneered this in 2005, as a Green Week once a month.

Actions application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document Lean Quality Assurance 2 Day.docx Lean Quality Assurance: 7 better ways to get quality than testing: COURSE OUTLINE Lean Quality Assurance: 7 better ways to get quality than testing
1. Target audience: people who are concerned with improving all quality aspects of products and services, while reducing the costs of testing and older forms of QC . Typical job titles are
Test managers, QA and QC people. The approach is upstream and 'design quality in', so people interested in designing qualities into products will enjoy this too.
2. Max size: 20
3. Instructor: Tom Gilb and Kai Gilb

Detail on Lean QA

• THE PROBLEM: testing costs too much, but is in fact ineffective. There are many proven methods for ensuring much better qualities, much sooner. But testers cannot be held responsible for deploying them. This is a CIO, CTO, QA-manager responsibility.
 Our ´lean´ methods operate upstream, up front, pro-active, and with rapid learning.

 OUR SOLUTION: We present a powerful selection of methods that can help you help to improve your software qualities dramatically, at low cost. All are freely adoptable. All can be tailored to your development environment immediately. All of them give measurable improvements.
 Many real stakeholders have to be considered in QA. Not just the ‘user’ and ‘customer’ or the ‘tester’.
 You can expect dozens of simple, but deep, and true, nuggets of real practical wisdom – from long experience and first hand practice.
 You will not get re-iteration of conventional wisdom. You will get deep principles and methods that really work.
 You will get the benefit of our decades of real experience internationally at IBM, HP, Boeing, Citigroup, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, Siemens, Ericsson, Nokia, Philips, Rolls Royce, Intel and other top corporations.
 This course is fact-based, on real life cases, of the lecturers, and others.

Actions application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document Lean Spec QC. BCS.docx Lean Spec QC: powerful peer review technology made simple. COURSE OUTLINE Lean Spec QC: powerful peer review technology made simple.
Don’t ‘clean up’ bad work. Measure how bad it is, and motivate people to really follow IT standards

Duration: 1 Day.

Highlights:
this course teaches a breakthrough set of ideas about review technology. It focuses on making sure that defined standards are really learned and followed in practice. It does so by a simple one hour sample measure of any class of technical specification (requirements, design source code) to measure the major defect level. It uses this information to reject bad work and to motivate people to learn to normally perform to the agreed ‘exit level’ of following standards. This method was invented by Gilbs, and is currently working in pilot multinationals. It is based on over three decades of deep successful involvement with peer review technology in several industries by the teachers.

About:
This course is about peer reviews at two levels. Are specifications well written, and are they the right stuff for the job? The breakthrough idea is to use sampling to review, thus reducing costs radically, from conventional inspections and reviews. The second breakthrough idea is to not waste time fixing bad work, but instead to catch it early, and motivate people to actually produce good work consistently.

Actions application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document Architecture Engineering Tools.docx Architecture Engineering Tools Day Course Syllabus, Gilb Course “Architecture Engineering Tools, a quantified multidimensional approach to IT architecture and design.”

Intended for: People who have some design or architecture practice and responsibility today, and who want some new and powerful tools for designing. This is the beginning of a personal study leading to competence as IT Design Engineer, or IT Architectural Engineer.

Background: Most IT design and IT Architecture is currently based on non-engineering paradigms. There is almost total absence of quantified requirements for performance, qualities and costs, as a design basis. There is as good as no practice of estimation and measurement of the multiple impacts of a design or architecture on these requirements. In short, design is practiced in an intuitive manner. Nice words but no justification or responsibility. This is highly unprofessional and is damaging to our community. This course will expose, and make freely available, the set of tools necessary to practicing real IT Design/Architecture Engineeering.

Actions application/pdf VALUE SCRUM outline GILBS 2011 MASTER.pdf Value Scrum: Gilb Training Course Outline Course Title:
• Value Scrum: Advanced Front End for Scrum, to focus on delivering quantified value streams to the organization’s stakeholders.
Course Introduction:
• THE PROBLEM: Scrum (and other Agile variations) has a weakness as presently practiced: it is too focussed on ‘User Stories’ and ‘Customers’. This is OK for smaller systems and projects. But it is not acceptable for larger and more-critical projects. ‘User Stories’ are a very poor reflection of the main critical expected value-improvements of a system. The ‘customer’ (or even ‘user’) is a poor reflection of the large number (20 to 40) interesting stakeholders in non-trivial systems.
• OUR SOLUTION: we will teach you to build a ‘front end’ to the Scrum, feeding into the Scrum Product Owner (PO). This Scrum front end will define three critical items:
• (1) The business and organizational improvement needs, (2) the stakeholder needs, (3) the system performance and quality needs. From these three related levels of business value, the PO and the technical design function in the development team can derive the necessary design. This design will impact the software system quality, which will impact the stakeholder needs, which will impact the business needs. All quantified, so non technical management can participate.
• Conventional Scrum does none of this, and is at high risk of failing to deliver expected value – which is a primary agile ideal! Scrum is a core process only – not complete, and Scrum users are always expected to supplement with any needed additional processes. This is one option.

• OUR SOLUTION: We present a powerful selection of methods that can help you help to improve your software qualities dramatically, at low cost. All are freely adoptable. All can be tailored to your development environment immediately. All of them give measurable improvements.

Actions application/pdf ‘Real QA’ draft version May 22 09 MASTER.pdf Real QA Manifesto Purpose of this document/manifesto:

Quality Assurance (QA) in software has in fact degenerated into testing alone, on a large scale. Software/IT management has ignorantly allowed this to happen, and it is time for a wakeup call. Of course many parts of the industry have been well-aware of more cost-effective ways of delivering required quality in practice, but this has in fact been largely ignored; while granting very large resources to testing alone (as opposed to smarter upstream engineering practices, based on design, prevention and upstream inspections).

Tom Gilb wrote this in response to a dialogue with my friend Mike Smith, of Testing Solutions Group, London. He seemed to believe we need to do things different in testing. This is my response.

Agile Testing: Improving Productivity

Improving Testing Productivity: Specific techniques to reduce wasted testing effort, and to improve the productivity of the testing effort. 

Part 1: Requirements: how should requirements be organised so that they are inherently more testable? 

Part 2: Quality Control: How should we organise quality control inspections of requirements and test planning so as to drive people to better practices, and to avoid wasting time on bad inputs? 

Part 3: Systematic Reduction of Defect Injection: The Defect Prevention Process: how can we organise ourselves at the test level to analyse recurrent problems and implement practical changes to avoid them? 

Part 4: Shift Focus to Qualitative Value Delivery: some wildly successful software producers have focussed on delivering a handful of key improvements to their stakeholders, frequently, measurably and testably. How does this change the testing process in practice?

See corresponding paper here.

The main idea is that we should contract for useful results, and not pay for failed projects to outside suppliers.

To do this we require 2 technologies
1. the ability to quantify qualitative results
2. the ability to deliver such results evolutionarily, early and frequently for partial payment as results cumulate
