Well, you finally made it to SOFTE (SOFTware Engineering), the home page of Tom Gilchrist, CSQA, CSQE.. Here you'll find methods, tools, and techniques for improvement, especially organizational improvement, or what I call Organizational Professionalism. While the focus is on software, many of the items found here are not software specific. Since I live and work in the Seattle area, I have a special interest in things that go on here in this area.
