A debate is currently raging in the acquisition
community: Does CMMI benefit the customer?
Several recent program failures from
organizations claiming high maturity levels have
caused some to doubt whether CMMI improves the
chances of a successful project. Is the CMMI
flawed? Is the staged representation bad? Or is
there a more fundamental explanation?
This presentation will discuss guidelines for appropriate use of CMMI in acquisition. Material is based on existing DoD and industry studies, but will focus on determining whether CMMI appraisal results accurately reflect contractor capability, and how to ensure mature processes contribute to program success. Relevant changes in CMMI Version 1.2 will be highlighted.
