Haven’t decided to join in on the fun yet?  No problem!  I’ve been counting down my Top 5 Reasons to Attend Capability Counts 2016 to aid your decision-making process. If you missed it ...

Reason #5 is “To Build Capability!

Reason #2: Capability Counts 2016 is where you can be with great organizations.

One thing you can count on, at Capability Counts 2016, you’re among friends. We don’t think it’s boastful to share stories of success and capability building. Rather, we want to find out from each other what’s working. So if you are doing something with performance innovation and and process improvement that is really helping put your company on the path to greatness, your peers would love to hear about it.

People will be coming to Capability Counts 2016 from a variety of backgrounds. Some are Certified Lead Appraisers seeking to get better at guiding their customers. Some are CMMI program sponsors who are looking for innovative and creative solutions for delivering on-time, high-quality software to their customers back home. Others are just learning how to spell “CMMI” and "agile" for the first time.

What we all share is a common interest in process, performance, and organizational improvement.

And here’s a shocker. Some of the conference attendees are actively looking for a potential solutions provider. If you are a CMMI Institute Partner, it would probably be a good idea to be at least a little bit visible, would you agree?

One way to increase your visibility is to take advantage of the sponsorship or exhibiting opportunities Capability Counts 2016 offers. Another option is simply to drop anchor and talk with folks about what you do. That’s what we’re there for!

I attended my first SEPG conference many years ago. You know what I’ve been saying ever since? Come to the conference for the technical sessions, but stay for the networking. You never know when you’re talking with your next big client – or your next Partner.

Capability Counts 2016 is a great place to be in the company of great companies.  Register here.
