Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI)

CHAOS TuesdayConversations in CHAOS – #19: In this show the CHAOS Team and our special guest, Albert Soule, discuss Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI). Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement training and certification program.  There are five levels to CMMI, which range from beginners to optimization.  CMMI is now offered through Carnegie Mellon University that chartered a program at the CMMI Institute.  CMMI was originally developed at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and was funded by the DOD DARPA. In this program we explore:

  • CMMI and the Levels
  • What it takes to move between levels
  • Process Areas and how do they work
  • What are the benefits of CMMI
  • How does CMMI work with agile

Part of CHAOS Tuesday: looks at resources that an organization can use improve their process.
