Tim Zeller Joins up with Broadsword

Dear CMMI Appraiser,

When we heard you speak at a forum for technology in government agencies a few months back, you said that adoption of the CMMI has been trending upward in the health care services industry. This was news to us, but now we have started seeing a requirement for CMMI Maturity Level 2 and CMMI Maturity Level 3 in our RFPs. Do you see this trend continuing? ~ Jean D. 

Jean, absolutely the trend is continuing, faster now than even a few months ago!   In fact, we've had to staff up to respond to the need.  As new regulations and requirements for health care optimization start to come on-line due to recent legislation in health care, we're seeing more and more than technology firms being asked to demonstrate their commitment to continuous improvement.  As a matter of fact, our firm has just welcomed a leading health-care professional, Timothy N. Zeller, J.D., to our growing health care services division.

Say hello to Tim!

Tim is a former chief executive of government and non-profit organizations. As Senior CMMI Consultant, Tim will help guide our clients to accelerate performance while increasing their ability to respond to customers (government as well as commercial) with greater agility and quality, using our unique AgileCMMI methodology.

Tim also expands Broadsword’s executive consulting capabilities in government relations, labor relations, human resources management and strategic planning.

We are proud and excited to have Tim aboard.
