Just starting out with CMMI and engineering performance Improvement?

Hey, CMMI Appraiser, I have a new job with a large supplier to the automotive industry (hint, you’ve heard of us), and I'm just getting started with CMMI and engineering performance improvement. Can you share some good online resources for beginners? ~ Faye R.

Hey, Faye! Welcome to the rapidly expanding world of engineering performance improvement and the CMMI! It's always a pleasure to meet new professionals to our industry who are adopting CMMI, the industry's leading behavioral model for engineering performance improvement.

If your experience is anything like mine, you’ll find the CMMI to be highly engaging and rewarding, both personally and professionally. That’s why I spend so much time creating content – including books, articles, videos, keynote presentations, webinars, CMMI training courses and more.  My goal is to help new engineering and software professionals like you learn about using the CMMI as one of the tools that can help improve performance, and put you on the path to greatness.
