Diary of a Live Process and Quality Improvement Initiative

I just made a move out of the consultant world. I just joined a small company (about 35 folks). They have been in business for almost 5 years and do consulting and contracts mostly for NASA and the FAA. The company has grown quite a bit in the last year and recognized the need to establish some better quality practices across their programs and projects. So, enter me!

I was hired with a fairly loose job description which is a good and bad thing. It is good because I am able to really create this job and have pretty free reign on what I am allowed to do. The bad part is that there isn’t any real clear direction on what they want from me….they just know they need process and testing improvement. So, I don’t really have any solid goals, objectives or priorities to work from.

I will be posting an update every 1 or 2 weeks on what I am doing and how I am doing it (and most importantly, how well it is working!).  I hope this will bring some interesting conversations, suggestions, and feedback from others. My first post will be up next Monday on my first week of work.
