Mark C. Paulk, Ph.D.
Dr. Paulk was a Senior Systems Scientist at the Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University until July 1, 2012... and this web page became inactive as of that date, although it should still be available. To see my new webpage, go to http://www.mark.paulkusa.com/ -- note that there will be a transition during the first week or two of July while I bring this new webpage up to speed.
Dr. Paulk's research interests revolve around Total Quality Management, best practices (e.g., Software CMM, ISO/IEC 15504, eSCM-SP), empirical research, high maturity practices, statistical thinking, and agile methods. He teaches in the Master of Software Engineering program at Carnegie Mellon.
Dr. Paulk received his PhD in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, his MS in computer science from Vanderbilt University, and his BS in mathematics and computer science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He is a Fellow of the ASQ, an ASQ Certified Software Quality Engineer, and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
I drafted a piece on enduring principles of software process and quality that summarizes my general philosophy. It may be of some interest to those struggling to achieve performance excellence.
I drafted a set of references on measurement, statistical thinking, and high maturity in response to a LinkedIn discussion.
