CMMI is now in it's second stable version (v1.2) and has been in use for over 7 years, yet after thousands of implementations and hundreds of appraisals, what CMMI is all about -- and the business value of implementing CMMI -- continues to allude many organizations. A firm grounding in what CMMI is (and therefore, what it isn't) is key to successfully absorbing the value of what CMMI has to offer.
This presentation communicates all 22 process areas of CMMI in simple business terms so that anyone learning about or using CMMI can be sure that when they open up CMMI to improve their business processes for developing products and services, it really does what it says "on the box."
Who should attend:
Anyone interested in learning about CMMI, why it's important to business and/or just a new way of looking at CMMI that they may not have seen before.
