Rapid Process Development
Getting your team members to clarify their own processes and understand their own shortcomings.

Quality and What We Mean
An introduction to the concept of quality, often referenced, rarely planned or designed objectively or quantitatively beforehand, followed by a discussion on what it means in your organisation and what are the issues with improvement.

Risk Management
A practical workshop for teams to understand how to identify, communicate, quantify and plan for risks. Participants are asked to identify, discuss and negotiate risks on their project with the help of a list of potential issues; afterwards they are invited to quantify the probability and potential cost of the risk and determine the most efficient mitigation and contingency plans.

Estimating
A brief presentation and exercise to help engineers improve their personal estimates and implement the corresponding measurements.

Presentations

A variety of presentations and talks on team, quality, culture, communication, process and more can be delivered internally on request. These are tailored to the specific needs of the organisation and combined as required.
