Consulting Services

Process Analysis and Process Improvement Consultants

Pierson’s Process Analysis and Process Improvement Consultants can provide clients with an assessment of their software development processes to determine their adherence to specified standards and procedures. In the absence of client-specified standards we will compare the client’s processes to our own set of best practice methodologies. When our assessment activities are complete, Pierson will identify areas of strengths and constraints that are inhibiting the software development process.
