CMMI for Development & CMMI for Services

Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. It helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes.

The benefits you can expect from using CMMI include the following:

  • Your organization's activities are explicitly linked to your business objectives and progress toward those objectives is tracked.
  • Your visibility into the organization's activities is increased to help you ensure that your product or service meets your customer's expectations.
  • You learn from new areas of well established business best practices (e.g., project management, risk management, requirements management)

CMMI is being adopted worldwide, including North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and Africa. This kind of response has substantiated the Haigh Group's commitment to CMMI.

You can use CMMI in two different areas of interest:

  • Product development (CMMI for Development)
  • Service establishment, management, and delivery (CMMI for Services)

CMMI models are collections of best practices that you can compare to your organization's best practices and guide improvement to your processes. A formal comparison of a CMMI model to your processes is called an appraisal. The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) incorporates the best ideas of several process improvement appraisal methods.

See more details on how Haigh Group can help you use the CMMI to establish a strong and value producing program of emphasizing quality products and services and continuous process improvement in your organization.
