|David Tuffley, School of ICT|
Welcome to my homepage at Griffith University.
I joined Griffith in 1997. During that time, I have lectured in Information Systems, Technical Communication, Software Internationalisation, Foundations of Computing, Ethics in IT, Project Team Development and Project Management. Pre-1997 I was a consultant to public and private sector organisations doing quality management work.
My current and foremost research is developing a Process Reference Model for the leadership of complex teams, operating in virtual environments. This model is compatible with ISO 15504 (SPICE) and the Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI). My past research has focussed on software requirements analysis, software internationalisation (the development of culturally appropriate user interfaces), the ethics of IT practice and research in teaching in the higher education context.
