The companion website

Nowadays, processes and methods are becoming a way of life in many organizations, particularly those moving up the  maturity level and adopting models such as SEI’s CMMI for Development.  This companion site is based on the Workout books and uses BusinessOptix to create a simplifed, example portfolio, programme and project management method website.

BusinessOptix is designed for 'corporates', and needs to know who you are in order to display the right content. Click on the Login/Register button to get to the BusinessOptix screen; then at bottom-left  choose 'Register', enter your email address and you should receive your username and password in separate emails. You'll be asked to change your password. Notifications are turned off by default. 

For those of you who are shy about entering your email address to access the companion site, there is a video to give you a preview of what to expect.

Cookies are used on the Companion Website to improve and provide more personalized services to you. You are free to manage this via your website browser settings at any time. BusinessOptix Privacy and Cookies Policy applies.
