Essential Software Project Management ESPM prepares project managers to succeed by demystifying Software Project Management.

QAI’s Essential Software Project Management (ESPM) course was first introduced a few years ago. Its extraordinary success can be gauged by the fact it has offered full houses (22 times as public seminars and 35 times in-company programs) in organizations like Xerox, Wipro Systems, Intergraph, Hughes Software, Sonata Software, Oracle and many more. In this short span and with every offering the program has evolved and improved based on the feedback from the participants.

Essential Software Management Principles can transform a chaotic endeavor into an orderly step by step process. ESPM provides a framework for Results Management. The workshop provides a conceptual and practical framework for planning, tracking and controlling software projects. Workshop attendees will be able to understand the static’s and dynamics of development and learn about tools and techniques to manage in this context.
