Parmi nos réalisations:

"Les différentes missions de conseil et support en Assurance Qualité et Méthodologie de Développement Logiciel  confiées par ALCATEL à SOFT METHOD se sont toutes déroulées à l'entière satisfaction des divers collaborateurs et du management, les objectifs fixés ayant été atteints dans les délais et les budgets fixes.

La société SOFT METHOD a mis en œuvre ses expertises avec un grand professionnalisme au sein de notre organisation, qu’elle a su appréhender avec efficacité et souplesse.

Ces éléments me permettent de souligner et de confirmer les aspects très positifs de cette collaboration, initiée par ALCATEL avec SOFT METHOD dès 1997.

En particulier Patrick Sarfati a pris en charge avec succès l’organisation et la coordination du renouvellement de notre certification ISO 9001 sur notre périmètre Telecom multinational

Gerard Vanderschooten a pris en charge avec autant de succès la Certification TQE1 (proche du TL 9000)

Jacqueline Lautmann a assuré le suivi qualité de Projets d’envergure, l’amélioration des processus de développement  et la mise en œuvre RUP / Rational Unified Process). Ces missions ont été pleinement remplies et les objectifs fixes atteints.

"Let me express my complete satisfaction to have collaborated with Patrick Sarfati (from SOFT METHOD ENGINEERING) in our recent contractual engagements.

Patrick demonstrated energy, creativity, engagement and a high level of competence, with a consistency I seldom have the pleasure to encounter.

I highly recommend Patrick for various related missions:

  • Setting up organizational frameworks, operational structure,
  • Implementing quality systems and monitoring their execution once implemented
  • Managing and controlling complex projects involving multicultural teams based in various geographical locations

I would look forward to working with him again with immense pleasure and complete confidence.

"SOFT METHOD Consulting Company provided to us best quality support. Thanks to them, we got the worldwide first successful CMMI Certification (SCAMPI A) for Hewlett Packard in the Software domain at the first shot.

The implementation was elaborated to meet our real project needs. For that purpose, Patrick Sarfati implemented the fundamentals of Project Management (Risks, Dependencies, Milestones, Issues Management) altogether with Unified Process (Iterative) implementation. This was quite a very challenging job. Patrick managed that very professionally and I do think that without his strong support, it was impossible.

For our most challenging software development projects, Patrick implemented SCRUM altogether with eXtrem Programming to ensure a positive change of team spirit.

As a result, we delivered in time with an increased visibility and predictability and in best quality due to Test Driven approach and a set of automatic unit tests (JUnit).

Patrick was also successfully Coaching our PMI certified Project Managers all along this SCRUM and XP CMMI certified implementation.

In 2006 we were in the lead companies to successfully combine CMMI and Agile approach.

I strongly recommend SOFT METHOD ENGINEERING for CMMI, Project Management and Agile Methodology Consulting, Coaching and accompaniment.

I hereby want to express my strong appreciation of the work done by Patrick Sarfati in the improvement of our R&D process, starting with the redefinition of our Quality Management System, and ultimately leading to the CMMi Level SCAMPI class A certification of our product organization.

Not only did Patrick provide true seniority and leadership in implementing a completely updated Quality Management System and new set of processes, but above all he has been extremely instrumental in making them a reality in the day-to-day execution of our projects, coaching the individual project managers, both in our French and Indian operations, and helping our Quality Manager become the full time leader of this activity.

Patrick has the very rare blend of deep technical expertise, seniority on process theory, and the operational experience and personal contact that makes his skills translate into an efficient implementation. We were able to directly experience the improvement of our projects, and therefore assess a true return on investment from Patrick’s mission.

I will gladly be a reference contact for anyone who would wish to use Patrick Sarfati services.

Sans le support de SOFT METHOD pour la mise en place de SCRUM nous n’aurions pas pu tenir nos engagements sur ce qui est devenu la plus importante version de notre logiciel.
Il nous fallait maitriser tous les projets, travailler par ordre de priorité, anticiper les tests au plus tôt et donner de la visibilité régulière à nos équipes aux USA.
Nous avons été accompagnés de manière pragmatique et efficace par Patrick pendant 5 jours de formation et de coaching sur notre projet, pour une implémentation qui a rempli tous ses objectifs. 



“In 2 days Soft Method Engineering helped us applying SCRUM in our first agile project.

It was very efficient as we had :

•a training for more 20 of our managers and engineers.
•and immediate application on our project of all concepts applied exactly to our needs

As a result the first sprint reached 100% of our schedule scope and quality target

In only 2 days Patrick trained us and coached tightly the Team on:

•Scrum whiteboard
•The daily meeting , related status and reports
•Release and sprint planning
•Scrum tools
•Scrum reports and status
•And much more as a result of an audit of our project

Patrick then did not stop after our Sprint Start, but is continuously coaching us by phone, Email and chat all along the questions we have he anticipated “

"Patrick from SOFT METHOD Consulting company was able to explain Agile and Scrum concepts in a way that was quickly grasped by a varied audience of managers and developers.   He presented the subject in an entertaining and compelling format, that made it clear we would all benefit from an Agile approach.   

I have 4 years experience as a scrum master,  but  still picked up several interesting new ideas from Patrick's innovative  course. "
