Broadsword Welcomes Darian Poinsetta

Hey, CMMI Appraiser, what do you recommend for a big player in the healthcare industry (you’ve heard of us), that hasn’t been able to get a handle on our administrative costs? We tried to automate some of the claims processing and improve our authorization process, but all we ended up doing was spend a lot of money enhancing our system and purchasing tools that didn’t work. Can we use CMMI to get us out of this morass? ~ Charles B.

Hey, Charles,

Yes, with a proper adoption of CMMI, the framework can help you tremendously. If you’ll think of CMMI as more of a behavioral improvement model than a process improvement approach, you can start to ask the right questions and have the conversations that can lead to changing the behaviors that got you stuck in the swamp in the first place.

It’s really not too difficult to have these conversations, Charles. All it takes is a strong desire to improve on what you’re already doing. From that point, you simply decide to adopt a flexible, agile approach to the CMMI, that fits within your company’s particular situation, and start elevating your performance, organization-wide.

Easier said than done? Perhaps. Because we are so passionate about seeing this transition happen for our clients, we’ve recently expanded our healthcare capability by adding Darian Poinsetta to our team, as Senior Consultant. Darian possesses an extremely useful gift for designing and deploying solutions to drive business value, and has a passion for helping Broadsword’s clients reach their goals with CMMI.

Please join me in welcoming Darian Poinsetta to the company, and wishing him great success!

As a Project Management Professional (PMP), Poinsetta is skilled at designing and deploying solutions to drive business value. His experience includes project management, program management, business process improvement, benefit realization and solutions design. His broad background, which includes management consulting in the technology and federal government sectors as well as healthcare, expands the capability of the Broadsword team.
