This one-day facilitated workshop provides hands-on coaching in the implementation of the tools and techniques from the "Measure" phase of the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) Six Sigma business improvement methodology, as taught in the SEI Improving Process Performance Using Six Sigma course. This just-in-time workshop will help to accelerate the "Measure" phase activity of major business improvement projects for either software process improvement or specific software product improvement. It will help improvement teams identify what to measure, including data exploration, as well as how to assess the quality and integrity of the data to be used by the project team. The workshop culminates with the establishment of performance baselines for the key processes or product attributes under study by the improvement team. This workshop leverages concepts in the Goal-Driven Measurement methodology but does not substitute for the SEI Goal-Driven Measurement workshop.
