How does CMMI help us improve product delivery?

Hey, CMMI Appraiser, our top initiative is to improve product delivery. With all of its requirements for documentation, etc., etc., etc., how does CMMI help us get products out the door faster? ~ Frank L.

Hey, Frank – The CMMI is not about documents. The CMMI is about learning to be a great company, and KNOWING whether you are on the path to greatness. So the best way to approach the problem of “how do we improve product delivery” in the context of CMMI is not to say, “We need faster delivery,” but to ask, “How do we become a great company?” That’s what the CMMI is about. 

We are going into greater depth tomorrow on the webinar: “Everything You Need to Know: CMMI!” on May 27th at noon EDT / 9AM PDT.  I hope you'll join us!

On the webinar, you'll see why, in its essence, CMMI is nothing more than a model for "how work gets done" in the best way possible, in the way that makes the most sense for your organization. That’s right. The CMMI helps you do work with the frameworks and methodologies you are ALREADY using … only better.

Starting to see why this can make a big difference for you, Frank? The focus is on changing and improving behaviors so you can be the best company you can be. This makes the CMMI incredibly useful in solving all business problems. For example, in addition to improving product delivery, CMMI helps you address late projects, over-budget projects, unhappy customers, etc., etc., etc.
