- CMMI stands for Capability Maturity Model Integration.
- CMMI is a framework for business process improvement.
- CMMI is NOT an engineering development standard or a development life cycle.
- CMMI is meant to help organizations improve their performance of and capability to consistently and predictably deliver the products, services, and sourced goods their customers want, when they want them and at a price they’re willing to pay. From a purely inwardly-facing perspective, CMMI helps companies improve operational performance by lowering the cost of production, delivery, and sourcing.
- CMMI’s a place to start, not a final destination. CMMI can’t tell an organization what is or isn’t important to them. CMMI, however, can provide a path for an organization to achieve its performance goals.
- CMMI doesn’t have its own context; every organization has its own unique one to implement CMMI.
- What CMMI practices are, are practices that improve existing work practices, but do not define what those work practices must be for any given activity or organization.
Next log of this series will be focussing on “what CMMI can be useful for”. Watch out the space for next updates and post your queries if any at firstname.lastname@example.org
