When should a start-up company start to think about adopting CMMI?

Hey, CMMI Appraiser – we’re an engineering start-up in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia, where a lot of our larger competitors have adopted performance improvement models like CMMI that federal government customers are requiring.  This summer marks our first year in business.  How soon should we start to think about adopting the CMMI? ~ Alan M.

Hey, Alan,
