Sarah Beecham

I am Sarah Beecham – I hold the position of Senior Research Fellow in the Process Quality Group in Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre. The Process Quality Group encompasses global software development, agile processes, planned processes, processes for software development in healthcare, and free and open source software research. I am currently working on the Lero project PAISEAN, funded Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Centre for Science Engineering and Technology. I work closely with industry, implementing a Model of Global Teaming, and validating a Decision Support System that aims to tailor Global Software Development (GSD) processes to meet individual organisation needs. During 2015 I am working on commercialising VENTURE – a simulation-based environment for interaction training.
