A few weeks ago Ally Gill was proud to have been asked to contribute to the collection of interviews published on the 5 Minutes to Process Improvement Success edited by Bill Fox. Ally joins a veritable who’s who of global Process Improvement specialists who have been interviewed by Bill, whose key question is “What is your best process improvement strategy or tactic that has worked really well for you or your clients?”. Previous interviewees have included Hillel Glazer, Karl Weigers, Scott Ambler, Jeff Dalton and Neil Potter.
We can expect the transcript from the interview to be published in the next few weeks. Watch this space! Details of the website are available from the Resources page.
Article in TickIT International
A while ago, Ally Gill was approached to write an article for TickIT international magazine, which is published on-line every quarter. This free publication is a means of communication with all TickIT-registered organisations and TickIT-minded individuals throughout the world. It also acts as an information exchange and sounding-board for anyone committed to IT quality. Ally’s article should be published in the Q2 2010 edition, sometime after April 15th 2010, and can be accessed here when available. The article is entitled “IT Quality in Crisis?”
UPDATE: Sadly, TickIT International folded before this article was published, but we have made it available in the downloads section of the website.
