Jeff Dalton CMMI Appraiser Instructor
Howdy, Partners!  So you want to know why y’all should hop on ‘ol Hot-n-Dusty and mosey on down to Albuquerque on March 12-15 for the SEPG 2012 Conference?  I may be a blue-bellied Yankee from the mitten state, but I’m fixin’ to give you the top 10 reasons for headin’ down to the BBQ.   Just as soon as I drop this phony cowpoke accent!
OK, enough of that!  To go along with the 12 Key Take-Aways that Brittney posted here last week, I’ve developed my own list of Top 10 Reasons to attend the SEPG NA 2012, starting today with Reason #10.
Drum roll, please!  Reason #10 is …
It’s all about you.
As you know if you’ve attended the conference in the past, SEPG NA is the premier software process improvement conference.  Hundreds of professionals come from around the world to learn, network and explore solutions to their performance problems.  These are the folks who have been driving SEPGNA’s reputation as the Greatest Show on Earth.
This year, the Show is even greater.  The format has been honed even sharper to meet you where you are in your professional growth.  The theme is Reaching New Levels of Excellence … and that’s YOUR excellence we’re talking about. 
What this means is that you can expect to come away with real life, practical and implementable solutions that will help you take your business to that next level.  The Program Committee selected approximately 100 technical sessions.  Whether your interest is multi-model, practical process improvement, high maturity, agile and CMMI, or any number of other disciplines, each is designed to dive into the principles and practices that can help your organization better understand how to harness the power of process improvement.
The variety of learning opportunities alone is incredible.  Whether you are new to the profession or a seasoned practitioner of the organizational excellence within the CMMI, there is a technical session for you.  Check out the full slate of programs.
Oh, and don’t forget to register by February 10, 2012.  You’ll save up to $300 off regular, full-conference registration rates.
And check back soon for Reason #9!
