Overview to Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®)


Course Details


The Capability Maturity Model Integrated – Development (CMMI®-DEV) Ver. 1.2 is an integrated model to propel process improvements in systems engineering, software engineering and other engineering disciplines. Using this model, organizations will be able to coordinate efforts to improve its capability in any of the disciplines.

The overview to CMMI®-DEV Ver. 1.2 Staged Representation course introduces participants to CMM® Integrated Model and its fundamental concepts. The course discussion emphasizes understanding of the five maturity levels and the 22 Process Areas (PAs) of the model. The course details the staged representation, while presenting an overview of the continuous representation.

Workshop Benefits

The workshop will help the participants to:

  • Understand the CMMI® framework
  • Understand the detailed requirements of the process areas in the CMMI®
  • Make valid judgments regarding the organization’s implementation of process areas
  • Identify issues that should be addressed in performing process improvements using the CMMI®

Workshop Format

The workshop follows lecture supplemented with illustrations. The instructor maintains a high level of student interaction and discussion to satisfy the student’s needs in their work environments. Extensive experiential learning and cases studies will be integrated in the workshop proceedings.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is meant for practitioners and the managers in your organization. It is specifically useful for organizations planning for CMMI®-DEV Ver 1.2 staged representation appraisal or transition from current CMMI® V1.1/ SW-CMM® v1.1 Maturity level to CMMI®-DEV Ver 1.2. Individuals coordinating process improvement in your Organization (SEPG(SM)) and those who may be participants in an Appraisal find it useful.
