Process Impact focuses on practical software process improvement. Our mission
is to collaborate with clients to have an impact on the processes their
software organizations use, and to help those processes have an impact
on the business. We apply established process improvement models and approaches
in a non-dogmatic, sensible way that fits the culture and needs of each
organization. Areas of expertise include requirements engineering, risk management,
software peer reviews, project management, metrics, and process assessment.
Karl Wiegers, the Principal Consultant at Process Impact, has many
years of experience with software development, software management, and
leading process improvement, quality improvement, and software measurement
activities in both small and large organizations.
Now Available: Software Requirements, Third Edition
Software Requirements, 3rd Edition by Karl Wiegers and Joy Beatty is now available in paperback,
and multiple other eBook formats.
This is a major enhancement over the popular second edition, with 60 percent additional content.
The book won an Excellence Award from the Society for Technical Communication
for conveying technical information in a clear, useful, meaningful, visually-appealing, and organized way.
We're delighted to announce that our flagship eLearning course, "In Search of Excellent Requirements," has now
been updated to align with Karl Wiegers's book Software Requirements, 3rd Edition. With about an hour
of new material added and countless updates and presentation improvements, this course is a comprehensive and contemporary
presentation on dozens of "good practices" for requirements elicitation, analysis, specification, validation, and management.
