Service Delivery Assessment
Is there growth potential in your software company that needs to be unlocked as quickly as possible by getting better at delivering software?
You've acquired a company, you're a new C-level at a company, or you're evaluating a company, and things just seem to be moving too slowly. The software engineers always seem busy, but features are just not making it into the hands of your customers, there are quality problems, or the site seems to be down, often. You know that delivering software isn't supposed to be this hard, but can't put your finger on what is holding the organization back.
Competitors seem to be releasing new features and press releases all the time, but this company seems to be spending plenty of money and feels like it's walking in sand.
