Who We Are

David Greer

Principal Consultant

For more than 30 years, David Greer has accelerated process efforts in Fortune 500s, aerospace and government organizations based on the premise that processes should be mapped to existing business systems, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all model.

As a result, he founded Assess-IT as a model-agnostic company that provides support in multiple process disciplines including CMMI, Lean, Six Sigma, ISO, Agile and ITIL.

Mr. Greer supports a variety of market sectors (Aerospace, Health Care, Government, Telecommunications, Power Generation and Distribution, Transportation, Application Development, Banking & Finance, Retail, and Service Providers) and their related consulting partners.

Over the course of his career, he has continually been on the leading edge of quality and process improvement as well as walked in his clients’ system and software development lifecycle shoes as a quality assurance lead, measurement lead, configuration management lead, engineering process group lead and process training lead.

David is the author of the Pocket Guide to CMMI and a seasoned presenter and article contributor.  He is also a member of the Partner Advisory Board for the CMMI Institute.
