Productivity Baseline and Benchmarking QSM helps you level-set expectations for future success. The good, the bad, and the costly.
Designed For: Executives who want to better understand IT productivity and quality assessments and comparisons.
Do you really know if your IT investments are paying off? Do you know how your software team’s productivity and quality compare to organizations building similar products?
QSM is ready to help.
We'll build you a productivity baseline for your current situation, and then we’ll help you identify why your 1-star and 5-star projects perform the way they do.
Finally, we'll compare your organization to others building similar systems—using historical data to capture reality-based expectations, and to show how your team truly measures up.
Productivity Baseline and Benchmarking Process Productivity Baseline and Benchmarking Benefits
Build a business case for investments
Justify new investments by building a business case for change, or prove the ROI of past investments by comparing newer project performance to a previous baseline.
Smoke out crazy expectations
The biggest cause of project failure is unrealistic expectations. Use baseline data to show when expectations are falling outside the range of reality.
Leverage your data and negotiate from a position of strength
Use historical data to make decisions based on real past performance—eliminating schedule and cost overruns, and putting yourself in a position to negotiate win-win project outcomes with business stakeholders.
Know where you fit in the competitive landscape
Reject unfair and baseless opinions about your productivity and competitive standing. Let your data speak for itself.
