Join me in the studio for today’s episode of CMMI-TV as I respond to a question I get from software and engineering professionals just about everywhere I go: "Do I need CMMI training?" Below is a video clip with my answer, followed by a synopsis of my response. Enjoy!
WHAT IS CMMI-DEV TRAINING?
The CMMI for Development training course is a 3-day class that we teach in cities like San Diego, Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, Philadelphia and New York City. The class is recommended for software engineers, software developers, project managers, business analysts and line managers. It is an opportunity to learn how software process improvement works, and how to improve the performance of your software or engineering organization.
WHY CONSIDER CMMI TRAINING?
- You are interested in improving software and engineering performance
- You want an approach to remedy consistently late or over-budget projects
- You need a way to make your work sustainable or scalable
WHO IS REQUIRED TO TAKE CMMI TRAINING?
WHY OUR CLASSES ARE DIFFERENT
Our classes are a little bit different from some of the other CMMI training classes, because we infuse agile concepts into our classes. For example, instead of some of the standard training exercises, we include:
- How to play Planning Poker
- How to use Fibonacci sequencing for your estimates
- How to do agile program planning
- How to perform retrospective
- And many other hands-on things that you’ll want to learn to participate in today’s programs using Scrum, Kanban or other methods
WHERE TO TAKE A CLASS
Our classes are presented quarterly, with our next course being presented in Washington DC in January.
