Uruguay SPIN

I’m returning from Montevideo Uruguay today. Yesterday (April 12, 2011) I spoke at the inaugural SPIN


Of course I spoke about PSP, and TSP, and AIM based CMMI process improvement. It still seems “too good to be true ” when I tell them that we can teach basic estimation and reduce defect density by a factor of 3 with just two weeks of training.  Even harder to believe is that the workers actually like working in a disciplined fashion because it reduces stress. But we have the data. Engaged workers, with some autonomy, working with discipline, are happier and more productive.

Thanks to the 53 who attended. We had some nice offline chats and dsicussion.
