In 2003, Mr. Koch incorporated ASK Process and began to branch out into a more general embrace of IT (Information Technology) process improvement. This embrace includes software Quality Assurance, software testing, software project management, Business Analysis, Agile software development and ITIL® (IT Infrastructure Library®) - a collection of best practices in IT Service Management.

In the process, Mr. Koch has earned these certifications and recognition: ITIL® Foundation and Operational Support & Analysis (from the UK Office of Government Commerce), PMP - Project Management Professional (from the Project Management Institute), STC Award of Merit (from the Society of Technical Communications), IEEE Senior Member (from the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers), Certified Scrum Master (from the Scrum Alliance), full membership (in the National Speakers Association), and Certified Toast Master (from Toast Masters International).
