Applying realistic quality controls
“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.”Sun Zhu - Chinese Military Strategist and Philosopher, 400bc
The strategy of assuring delivery quality doesn't require complicated controls and endless documentation. Since Y2K, some governance models have grown so vast in scope and dense in documentation to a point that can slow the pace and progress of a program to the point where the time to value erodes and the investment is compromised.
We keep it simple, focusing controls on risk adverse decision-making at critical transition points of the development lifecycle.
