Software Project Post-Mortems.     Preserve your company's intellectual capital. Experience shows that code has a much longer lifespan when the history of each development cycle is captured in writing.

Building Block Software will interview your developers at the end of development cycles to provide you with a written record of key information not evident from the source code. $1250/day plus expenses.
