Keep Calm and use TMMi
Experimentus has been a significant supporter of the TMMi Foundation since it first started. Over the last 8 years we have run well over 150 TMMi assessments and in the last 12 months have certified 4 major organisations to either TMMi level 2 or 3 and a further 2 organisations at level 4 – in addition, we are currently working with 2 organisations assisting them in being certified to the top level of TMMi, level 5.

Certifications are only part of the story and they can certainly help organisations validate their practices. The bigger aspect though is that IT service providers are very clear they want practical and pragmatic help in identifying improvements to their processes that will mean they are more effective and efficient in their testing. Preventing defects not just detecting them.

Over the last few years Clive has been fully involved with running many TMMi assessments and has seen the benefits that organisations have subsequently enjoyed.

There are a number of key factors that contribute to organisations improving their processes and so in this presentation, Clive will explore the following points:

Why improve what we do?
An overview of the TMMi model
How assessments work
The current state of the nation

Clive is a Managing Consultant with Experimentus based in London and has a focus of managing test and quality process improvement assignments and the development the TMMi training offering. He is a TMMi Lead Assessor and conducted a number of assessments and training both in the UK and abroad.

      Hi Liz, sadly the venue could not get the webinar link to work properly so we had to go without it. I will re-record the presentation shortly so it will be available. If you have any immediate questions just let me know.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
