||Focus & Commitment
SPC focuses on practical software process improvement. Our goal is to work with clients to positively impact their development processes and ensure those processes have a larger impact on the business. This is a collaborative engagement model that ensures close alignment between application development and business strategy, process improvement and value creation.
SPC’s proven technical expertise combined with broad business acumen helps our customers to bridge software and management processes with overall business drivers. This focus not only benefits the development group, but operational and management teams, as well.

Unlike many consulting firms, our engagements go beyond the conventional assessment, recommendations, and reporting phases. Upfront, we work with our clients to gauge their overall readiness for change. Only then do we establish appropriate recommendations, and work together to ensure these outcomes are carried out in ways that ensure both immediate and longer-term success.
