What We Do

CLM Quick Win Pilots

Spend Your Time Adopting Best Practices, Not Creating Them

Becoming familiar with new techniques, terminology and tools can distract you from the real task: delivering quality software. Avnet Services’ Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) Quick Win Pilots ensure new processes and tools ‘stick’ by helping you focus on adoption rather than definition.

Through a combination of consultative training and coaching, we help you accelerate the successful adoption of Agile development with IBM Rational’s CLM solution, which can either be installed on premises or accessed from the cloud. Rational’s CLM solution improves team productivity by providing a fully integrated platform for software delivery.

A Quick Win Pilot begins with job-specific training for two distinct groups: team members and administrators.

  • Team members participate in workshops that simulate project lifecycle and day-in-the-life scenarios though a combination of lectures and hands-on-tool experience. The focus is on daily use rather than administrative or functional features.
  • Administrator training takes place in a traditional classroom setting and dives deep into the capabilities and administrative best practices for the CLM products.

Each Quick Win Pilot provides 4-8 weeks of coaching on a real project. Our expert coaches ensure your team is able to consistently and confidently apply what they learned during training in the production environment. Periodical retrospectives harvest team feedback and lessons learned so they can be applied in future efforts.
