Approach

At Monticello Consulting Group, we view quality as an integral part of the organizational mindset—as important as a particular set of tools or testing routines.  We bring structure to large, complex programs by implementing a global testing plan and customizing our process for each new client in order to produce the best-quality result.


Expertise

Our consultants understand that for organizations to survive they must adapt to the disruptive forces, both internal and external, that are effecting continuous change. The challenge today, for many of our clients, is to not lose sight of the importance of quality in the face of these rapid changes. Our consultants have been trained in program management best practices and understand how to control complex change initiatives.  They are experts with all essential components of testing governance capabilities and each possess relevant industry experience.

Delivery

There are many challenges to overcome when building quality into the delivery of enterprise-wide strategic initiatives, such as system conversions and new product rollouts.  At Monticello Consulting, we have developed and refined a framework to ensure that quality is integral to the program from the outset, starting with the generation of high quality business requirements that are traced through to completion in our comprehensive test plans.  Once testing is initiated, our testing governance supports all essential components and phases of testing.  Whether in an Agile or a Waterfall program, our framework incorporates information feedback to achieve ever-higher levels of quality in the end-product.
