CMMI V2.0 is coming! Are you ready?

Dear, CMMI Appraiser, I just found out that an all new version of CMMI coming out soon. We were recently re-appraised for CMMI-DEV v1.3, and we heard nothing about this at the time. What secret changes are coming for me and my company? ~ Jay H.

Dear Jay,

I understand that the CMMI 2.0 news may have caught you by surprise -- but don't let it throw you off your game. In CMMI, as in life, there is really only one real secret: Change happens.

To help you learn about CMMI 2.0, I will be writing about it this month, and also will be leading one of the first public CMMI 2.0 Training Classes, on May 7-9, 2018, in Washington, D.C. You are personally invited to attend.

There is a lot to learn - new language, new practices, and a brand new appraisal methodology.

A ton of value is packed into this class (actually, it's two classes - Foundations of Capability + Building DEV Excellence). Since you're already thinking about your next appraisal, you'll appreciate knowing that the this class will take you inside the changing Appraisal process. You will be introduced to the new concepts in the latest release of the new CMMI model, and you will see how these changes impact the way CMMI Appraisals are conducted.

Here's a preview:  SCAMPI is going away!  So are Specific Goals....

But you don't have to wait until May to start learning about CMMI 2.0. Over the coming weeks, we'll explore the nuances of the changing CMMI model and appraisal method right here. So stop back soon -- and bring a friend!
