Ouch. Seems a bit harsh as an assessment tool: Assess Your Software Process Ignorance Quotient – but then again: why ignore all those tools that can really help you, if you use them correctly? But let me admit it: I do not score a perfect 10, but the ideal of zero is far away still… and at the same time, I’m not sure I want to attain that target – as usual, “context” is important!
