He has successfully deployed SW-CMM and CMMI at these defense companies and has participated in numerous SW-CMM and CMMI appraisals. He was the principal technical lead for GDAIS ICS ITS achieving CMMI V1.2 ML5 in November Bruce was awarded an Ed.D doctoral degree in Leadership by the University of St. Thomas in November His doctoral dissertation was a bottoms-up case study on how engineering practitioners perceive the value of the CMMI in terms of their job performance and job satisfaction. Bruce's doctoral dissertation was dedicated to his process heroes: Watts Humphrey, Bill Curtis, and Mike Konrad. For without their engineering process vision, passion, and commitment there would be a major void in engineering development models and products. Bruce presently holds five degrees: Ed.D, MS Software Engineering, BS Computer Science, MBA Management, and BA Economics. He has a passion for helping people produce quality products, for process improvement, and for the acquisition of practical knowledge. Bruce works for General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (GDAIS) in Bloomington, MN in Enterprise Mission Assurance as a Lead Principal Systems Engineer Dr. Bruce Beadell 11

Mr. Wegerson has also championed process improvement initiatives, led an organization to achieve the Software Engineering Institutes (SEI) Capability Maturity Model for Software (SW-CMMSM) Level 2 maturity, and currently works in quality and process improvement at a CMMI Maturity Level 5 development organization. He has assessed, developed, and deployed processes to achieve measurable improvements in predictability, productivity, and profitablility. Mr. Wegerson regularly presents on software / systems product and process development, project management, and industry best practices. He has taught as an adjunct in a graduate school engineering program. Mr. Wegerson holds a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science in Software Engineering.
