and review sessions during its running.
Escala can provide the Immersion
Program to kick-start the client development team making
use of all of the concepts, techniques, programming langugages,
tools they have learnt about, but not yet had any real opportunity
to put into practice:
- on a smaller, selected scope of the full project
- one or two full iterations of the development cycle
- developing client staff skills:
- modeling, architecting
- programming, testing, integration
- deployment, review
This would typically be for one or two iterations, each having
a duration of two weeks. This could also use any of a variety
of development approaches, e.g. RUP, DSDM, Agile.
Partner staff would take over the guidance of the client development
team, with their practical skills and knowledge significantly
enhanced by the Immersion Program.
Partner staff see the client's project through to completion.

issues and best practices. The partner staff would benefit
from the extensive experience that Escala staff have
