About The Process Group
Across the corporate spectrum, companies are identifying the critical need to improve quality and efficiency within every area of operations. Since 1988, The Process Group principals have been helping companies improve their schedule, cost, and quality results. (See testimonials.)
“Their service and attitude are exceptional. They convey a sincere, personal interest in wanting to help you remove the hurdles that face your organization.”
— Libby Dunn, Software Engineering Process Group.
What Makes The Process Group Different?
The Process Group works to understand the unique situation that each client faces. We are then able to tailor our approach to address these specific needs.
Our commitment to service doesn’t terminate at the end of a consulting or training session. We remain easily accessible to our clients and provide ongoing monitoring, as well as a complimentary help line.
In a field that often tends to be esoteric or theoretical, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide solid, pragmatic solutions that the client can easily and quickly put into place. In most cases, our clients start seeing tangible results and measurable improvements from our work immediately.
“We were impressed with their ability to understand what we were doing and respond with a tailored approach that met our needs. Groups which were a little stuck are now working fine!”
— Irene Allen, Manager of Software Process Improvement, Production System Group, Xerox.
