Estimation Process Gap Analysis

Our Estimation Process Gap Analysis evaluates your organization’s estimation process and methods in order to identify areas of improvement and facilitate more accurate estimation. The service features three stages:

  • Interview
  • Discovery
  • Analysis of your process

We will compare your current estimation process to industry best practices, similar organizations, and your organization’s goals to create a roadmap for change. We will help you understand what changes should be made to your process and what benefits will result.


This analysis is ideal for a Vice President or Director of Software Development who needs or wants to validate or evaluate their organization’s estimation process and methods so that they can produce more accurate estimates and better manage risk. The Estimation Process Gap Analysis is a three-day engagement, including an interview, discovery, and analysis of your current estimation process, as compared to industry best practices and your corporate objectives. Unlike an estimation tool, the Estimation Process Gap Analysis will help you understand how your organization compares to others and how to implement changes that will result in valuable improvements.
