Global Adoption of CMMI Performance Improvement Framework Continues to Rise

Reposted from: BusinessWire · Feb. 24, 2014 | Last Updated: Feb. 24, 2014 11:31 AM ET  

CMMI Institute announced today that a record number of Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) appraisals were completed in 2013 as organizations across the globe elevate organizational performance by adopting CMMI. The company also released the findings of a customer satisfaction survey using the Net Promoter® Score (NPS) methodology in which individuals who utilize CMMI rated CMMI as the world class means of improving organizational performance.
CMMI appraisals allow companies to measure their capability maturity against a defined framework of best practices. More than 1,600 appraisals were completed in 2013, the most ever done in one year and an 11% increase over 2012, the previous record year for appraisals. Of the 2013 appraisals nearly 40% were completed in China, where the widespread adoption of CMMI is driving economic growth and development across the region.

Just as a side-note, as a Lead Appraiser at Broadsword, I personally delivered 10 of those SCAMPI A's last year, in addition to about a dozen Class B and fifteen Class C Appraisals.
