Microsoft UK have just launched the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Assessment which is designed to quickly identify how an organisation approaches software development from requirements to release.  Based on your answers, the assessment will suggest simple but effective improvements that can be made to the way you develop software and offer best practice resources.

The assessment has been developed in conjunction with domain experts (Microsoft Gold ALM Partners Black Marble & nFocus) to consider your current process from start to finish.  The online portal allows you to complete the assessment in your own time, delegate question areas to the relevant experts within your organisation and produces a printable report of the results.
