Is the trend of CMMI Appraisals slowing down? Guess again!

Hey, CMMI Appraiser, are a lot of organizations still choosing to adopt CMMI, or is the trend slowing? ~ Jose J.

Hey, Jose –

The CMMI Institute’s data on the adoption of CMMI tells us that the trajectory continues its upward climb.  This year, the CMMI Institute reports another RECORD YEAR, with the most appraisals delivered.

As you see in the chart, fueled by the demand to improve organizational capabilities and drive business results, 1,913 organizations earned a CMMI maturity and capability rating in 2015. That’s a 15% increase over the previous year, and a cause for celebration!

Why get so excited?  Well, you hardly need a reason to cheer when you see the CMMI as we see it - as an ongoing celebration, a model for changing and improving behavior in the quest for becoming a great company.  As more organizations embrace the Model, and put themselves on the path to greatness, it raises the standard for everyone, and our entire industry improves.

Here's hoping the trend continues!
