Escaping the commoditization war

Given the challenges we were faced with to raise our game, we find that Last Mile's consultants have not only understood the pulse of the organization, they have also built a great rapport with the team on the ground. The learning sessions have been very enthusiastically received, and that it spans over three months, and not just 5 straight days, is helping people implement their learning into their projects and seeing the benefits of it.

The process transformational areas have touched all aspects of the software test process from test requirement management through to reporting and governance and are now being embedded into the projects. We have begun the journey with them, and we believe that this is the right road that they have set us on with their pragmatic insights.
