Brown bag seminars

Brown bag seminars are a collection of short, focused, informal seminars aimed at helping organizations improve predictability, productivity, quality, and time-to-market. By presenting focused topics in a short (about an hour) informal setting, your staff can learn new methods and techniques that can help them in their work without affecting time-critical project schedules.

Brown bag seminars can also be used as a forum for discussing compliance issues and for sharing ideas and experiences. Brown bag seminars can be presented in person in the New England area or using browser-based remote meeting tools.

Examples of Brown Bag Seminar Topics:
  • Do You Have the Right Stuff to Manage a QA/Test Team?
  • Writing Requirements for Software
  • Estimating and Scheduling using the Yellow Sticky Method
  • Root Cause Analysis for Customer Reported Problems
  • Increasing the Effectiveness of Testing
  • Introduction to Peer Reviews and Inspections
  • Risk Management for Software Projects
  • All Software Is Defective—Implications for the Software Industry


Each of the seminars can be tailored to meet your specific needs and all are based on the simple principle that real learning occurs when people are actively involved.
