Inspire Quality Services

Training

We provide a comprehensive set of training workshops covering key aspects of agile, software quality / test and software / test process improvement. Our focus is in-house training, customised to meet your specific needs but we also run a public programme (see Latest Events in right hand column).



Inspire Quality Services Training Implementation Approach

Inspire Quality Services understand that participants who come on a training workshop want not only to learn about the subject matter but how to implement good practices as soon as possible. We have found that a standard workshop is not enough to facilitate this!


Inspire Quality Services therefore propose the following:

  • Visit/communicate with the company to understand the local requirements for the specific area and to agree a tailored workshop content. This will maximise the chances of a successful improvement programme by providing focused training.
  • Design a questionnaire to be completed by each participant before attending the workshop. This is to gather individual background and issues relating to area which require attention.
  • Give the organisation guidelines on selecting projects for the workshop exercises. The workshop approach draws heavily from the 'learning by doing' principle. Therefore, the participants will apply the principles and practices to their own projects during the workshop. The benefits for the participants of this approach compared to using a fabricated case study include:
    • They actually apply the approach before leaving the class room environment and can see the practical problems and solutions They have their projects somewhat started before they leave the class.
    • They see the approach as it applies to them and not to some mythical company/project.
    • They are more active during the workshop which stimulates learning.
  • Develop a tailored training workshop to meet the organisation's specific requirements.
  • Deliver the workshop in a very participative workshop style (explained above).
  • Leave each individual with a personal Action Plan.
  • Provide phone, e-mail and fax support for 3 months as required.
  • Visit the site by arrangement, 3 months after the original workshop to run a half-day consultancy session which will:
    • Review progress on the action plans.
    • Re-present difficult material and cover some new material.
    • Renew the enthusiasm for the area of improvement.
    • Review the effectiveness of the approach with the training department.
    • Seek feedback on the overall approach.
