Captain’s report: The good sloop Improvement has set a proper course for Capability Counts 2016 (formerly known as SEPG North America). We will arrive in Annapolis, Maryland, hale and hearty and ready to party on May 10-11!
For those who haven’t yet decided to join us, I’ve been counting down my Top 5 Reasons to Attend Capability Counts 2016. If you missed it, Reason #5 was “To Build Capability!” Reason #4 was “To Play Agile Games.” And here we go with Reason #3.
Drum roll please …
Reason #3 to Attend Capability Counts 2016: To Crown a Capability Champion!
Another new feature of Capability Counts 2016 is The Capability Challenge.
The Capability Challenge is awesome!
A business competition that began in November in a special webinar broadcast, The Capability Challenge, hosted by the CMMI Institute, matches the best against the best in a battle of strengths. The contestants, also known as the “Capability Challengers”, have been competing for the best business success story through a series of webinars. The sparks have been flying!
In each round, four companies presented their success stories in 15-minute segments on an hour-long webinar. These software and engineering innovators discussed ways they sustained process capability in a diminishing environment, improved the effectiveness of global service management delivery processes, increased productivity and reduced costs, and more. At the end of each webinar, attendees voted on the best capability improvement story.
The final showdown happens at Capability Counts 2016 with a Special Panel, the Capability Challenge Finals, where the four remaining Challengers will present their stories in front of the entire community – and YOU will vote for the Capability Champion.
Don’t miss this incredible event! Come to Capability Counts 2016, watch the competition, hear the stories of building capability, and help us discover our 2016 Capability Challenge Champion. The winner will be announced at the closing of the conference.
See you there!
