One-Off Vendor Estimate Validation

Our One-Off Vendor Estimate Validation performs a single parametric estimate of one of your past or current projects to demonstrate the benefits of parametric modeling and/or to serve as an independent assessment of software vendor.

This estimate can be used internally for improved planning, in vendor negotiations, or to support the adoption of a new estimation method.


This service is ideal for a Vice President or Director of Software Development who needs or wants an independent estimate for internal use. The One-off Vendor Estimate Validation provides actionable data using your existing information and artifacts. Unlike an estimation tool, we provide a single parametric estimate of a past or current project to demonstrate the benefits of parametric modeling. We also provide an independent assessment of a project's probability of completion.

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
