If you have quantified your critical objectives or requirements (previous BCS lecture, Quantifying Quality, see below references, your can evaluate any solutions for delivering the value requirements, in an objective and quantified way. The methods can be used to analyze designs/architectures/strategies, and the IET can later be used to manage the agile value delivery process itself. It allows us to measure and manage the sprint feedback, regarding values, qualities, and costs. Including the possibility of mid-project design adjustment to reduce costs and enhance qualities, as practiced by IBM Cleanroom. The tool can use spreadsheets or tailored apps.

About the speaker

Tom Gilb

Tom was born in California 1940, lived in the UK 1956-58, Norway 1958 to present. He joined IBM 1958. Consulted for a very wide variety of organisations, and managed to influence some of them in interesting and well documented ways.

Tom is an Honorary Fellow of BCS. See for more details.

He has held many courses at BCS for many years.

Tom is the author of many books and hundreds of papers on these and related subjects. His book ‘Competitive Engineering’ is a substantial definition of requirements ideas. His ideas on requirements are the acknowledged basis for CMMI level 4 (quantification, as initially developed at IBM from 1980). Tom has guest lectured at universities all over UK, Europe, China, India, USA, Korea – and has been a keynote speaker at dozens of technical conferences internationally.

There are very many organizations and individuals who use some or all of Gilb methods. IBM and HP were two early corporate adopters. Over the recent years, 20,000 engineers at Intel have adopted the Planguage requirements methods. Ericsson, Nokia, and A Major Multinational Finance Group use parts of their methods extensively. Many smaller companies also use the methods.

Our events are for adults aged 16 years and over.
