Established in 1990 and located in Silicon Valley, SQM provides organizations with management consulting and training in order to produce better quality software. SQM specializes in strategies and tactics for transformation of software development and quality assurance organizations. This includes organizational assessment, change management, technical analysis for testing systems, and training in testing and software quality assurance. The President and Principal Consultant, Douglas Hoffman,
has extensive experience with systems and software throughout the computer industry.
Software development, quality assurance, and software testing are technically and organizationally challenging, but quality does not need to be coerced. When done properly, quality assurance and testing contribute to making tasks simpler and more effective, thus lowering costs by enabling everyone to work more efficiently.
SQM focuses on client success and satisfaction. Each organization and product has unique technical, organizational, and user contexts. Therefore, we evaluate the context to determine appropriate solutions, tools, and methods tailored for their context. We don't have preconceived notions about what solutions are appropriate; we don't provide solutions looking for problems.
