The CMMI Institute today announced version 2.0 of CMMI Development. CMMI Development is a globally recognized process improvement model of software, product and systems development best practices. It’s designed to elevate organizational performance. With V2.0, CMMI hopes to drive business performance by building and benchmarking world-class product development capabilities.
“Global adoption of the CMMI has been growing at a record rate because of the material results it delivers,” said Kirk Botula, CMMI Institute CEO. “High- performance commercial and government organizations around the world rely on CMMI to provide a clear roadmap to mitigate risk, create value, and build a resilient culture of continuous improvement. These include companies like Honeywell, Cognizant and Unisys, and U.S. government agencies, such as the FDA and NASA.”
Capabilities lie at the heart of an organization’s ability to achieve results and address strategic priorities. CMMI Development V2.0 will help organizations substantially improve performance by building and sustaining capabilities in key areas such as product development and engineering, managing business resilience, planning and managing work, selecting and managing suppliers, ensuring quality, and managing the workforce.
The CMMI V2.0 product suite includes the maturity model, adoption guidance, system and supporting tools, training; and certification and an appraisal method. And, like its predecessors, CMMI V2.0 leverages its five levels that represent a path of increasing capability maturity to improve business performance.
