We build software teams to develop software better, faster, and at lower cost to the customer.
We do this by making better use of the computer to augment software development teams — following in the footsteps of Douglas Engelbart and his 1962 conceptual framework, quoted from here:
By “augmenting human intellect” we mean increasing the capability of a man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his particular needs, and to derive solutions to problems.
Augment is a place where we can bring together individual ability and initiative to realize Engelbart’s vision for augmenting teamwork. We use team-centric process to enable the inquiring mind to seek and apply better ways of learning and understanding. Projects developed by jigsawed learning teams quickly yield confidence in new skills and also generate tools which improve the training process for all comers.
The key to the Augment training approach is making available the essential feedback, guidance, and opportunity to put new skills to work and improve them quickly and systematically. I.e. Augment process shapes Individual disciplined practice within expert-capable, emergent communities. Augment processes are continually assessed and improved.Gary Jedynak
