I do not have Apprentice status, so I'll post this here...

Reaction to Organizational Announcements on CMM and Six Sigma
After the initial from handwaving and the brandishing of buzzwords, I see the following:

  • Software is not Hardware.
  • What are your inputs?
  • What are your outputs?
  • Is there a linear correspondence between input and output?
  • How do you define a quality baseline?
  • What measurements are used to define Software quality?
  • Is there a range of tolerances?
  • Are there upper or lower limits?
  • How do you define defect?
  • Are all anomalies defects?
  • How do you map defects to process?
  • How do you count defects in Software?
  • Is the Software process truly repeatable?

There seems to be an unhealthy lack of skepticism around these things.
