Case Study 1: Project Rescue
The Crisis. A Federal agency was rolling out 3,000 new computers
to all employees in two office towers. Halfway through the
deployment, they discovered they were in big trouble. Half
of the computers didn't work at all. The other half had numerous
problems. QTI had helped with planning an earlier project
and provided training, so they called us for an Independent
Verification & Validation
(IV&V), a diagnosis of what was going wrong.
How QTI worked with the team. QTI was both cooperative
and independent. We worked cooperatively with the consulting
firm and government
staff to define problems and propose solutions. At the same

and Senior Consultant for QTI, identified 22 major issues,
team resolved several of them and started working on the rest.

and consulted completed the recommendations in QTI's report
the project successfully.

In addition, the new cooperative work approach improved the
relationship between the agency and its computer services vendor
for the next
several projects, including a crucial Y2K deployment.
