The Guide is a way to manage projects. It is a comprehensive intellectual work automation system for software companies. The Guide automates project and process measurements, personnel skills and knowledge, customer feedback, standard adherence, real-time automatic audits, and more. The Guide does not require standards to be followed, but encourages it. The Guide suggests what professionals should do next, and provides tools to do it. The Guide can actually automatically tell what should be done next. The Guide also tells what has not been done.
