SuiteScript Operations Diagnostic

The most effective software development teams in the world didn't start there, but earned their way there by investing in and mastering five key areas:

  1. Attracting Top Talent
  2. Cultivating Valuable Expertise
  3. Developing the Team
  4. Executing with Quality
  5. Automating Best Practices

I help NetSuite development teams increase their profitability, their developer engagement and retention, and their technical prowess by advising them in embracing these practices. 

Generally the first step in that process is a complete SuiteScript Operations Diagnostic.

Through the Diagnostic, you'll get an objective, outside expert's perspective on your organizational strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities in these five areas.

Diagnostics are structured as a series of week-long engagements; each week, we focus on a single specific area of your operation for a total of 5 weeks.

Each week is structured as:

  1. A 1-on-1 discovery conversation between you and I covering the focus area for the week - generally 90 minutes.
  2. A mix of 1-on-1 and team interviews with developers throughout the week - generally 15 - 30 minutes each. Typically team members will be far more candid with an outside observer than with their boss.
  3. A 1-on-1 review conversation between you and I  - generally 90 minutes - to discuss my observations and recommendations, which I will have compiled into a document and made available to you prior.

The focus topics for each week are:

  1. Current status of the organization, the vision for the team, and the major obstacles to achieving that vision
  2. Developer Hiring and Onboarding
  3. Developer Evaluation and Career Growth
  4. Software Project Management
  5. DevOps

All conversations are scheduled well in advance so as not to interfere with other work; I have no interest in surprising or distracting anyone. All developer feedback is anonymized and generalized by me. I do not record or report on individual private discussions unless that individual explicitly requests it.
