Software Measurement Consulting

Whether you use an Agile, Lean, traditional, or hybrid software development methodology, continuous improvement driven by metrics is imperative in today’s complex, competitive markets. But software metrics can be difficult and costly to gather, and often the numbers don’t deliver the intended insights. Worse yet, measurement can create frustration, distrust, and unhealthy behavior.

 

Construx has the expertise and experience to help you create an effective, affordable metrics program.
