Training

Total Metrics provides training across the broad spectrum of software measurement related activities. Topics are delivered at a level to suit any audience, from management looking for an overview, to practitioners who need 'hands-on' detailed training. Our trainers are Internationally Metrics Certified and are tertiary qualified in Computer Science and Education.

Techniques for Making the Tough Decisions for Software Projects - Learn How

Our new module based training teaches metrics based governance techniques that helps you make project decisions that are based on facts rather than opinions and therefore easily communicated, verifiable and auditable. Modules are independent and therefore can be completed individually or in any order; each teaches a specific set of skills.

These leading edge techniques to enable you to confidently objectively answer questions such as:

  • How big is your project and how can you have confidence that the project cost estimates are reasonable?
  • How cost effective is your development process and would it have been cheaper to outsource?
  • How can you know the developers are providing value for money?
  • Is the change you requested really worth what you were charged?
  • AND more importantly should the project have ever been started?
    • See Module 4: Investment Management Standard

Metrics for Process Improvement

Metrics for Process Improvement In any IT Strategy, it is imperative that organisations manage and control their software applications environment by monitoring its performance. Software metrics are the resulting values obtained by the software measurement process, which indicate the performance efficiency, cost effectiveness and quality of your software products and processes. As the backbone of IT, the correct assessment of your software applications can have a dramatic effect on the benefits IT can bring to your organisation in driving continuous improvement.

Key Performance Indicators Workshop

Organisations implementing process improvement need to make informed decisions about where to focus their proposed changes for maximum effect. Software Measurement provides the information necessary to ensure that your process improvement initiatives give you the desired results, cost effectively.
