Happy Thanksgiving from the CMMI Appraiser's Family to yours!

Dear Readers,

This Thanksgiving, as Mrs. CMMI Appraiser and I sit down at the holiday table with our Little Appraisers, friends, and extended family, we are thankful for all of the opportunities we've had to meet so many companies that are adopting the CMMI for the right reasons.

Yes, by taking the right approach to adopting the CMMI in 2018, organizations are experiencing higher quality, faster delivery, and more predictable, repeatable results. These outcomes are helping the entire industry improve. That's why, looking forward, we feel an even greater sense of gratitude for all those in 2019 who will choose to adopt the CMMI for the right reasons:

  • Because the CMMI is a time-tested, industry-proven model for positive outcomes;
  • Because the CMMI is a framework and set of guidelines for changing behaviors and changing culture;
  • Because the CMMI allows you to do what you are already doing, only better.
Last but not least, we’re grateful for YOU, the Reader. You’re the one who puts these truths in action every day by following the guidance of the CMMI to keep your company on the path to greatness. Ultimately, YOU are what the CMMI is all about, and we couldn’t feel more fortunate than to be sharing this journey with you!

To show our gratitude, we’re offering you a hassle-free download of our popular book, "A Guide to Scrum and CMMI: Improving Agile Performance with CMMI." Originally published by the CMMI Institute, the book is designed to help you learn to maximize your investment in agile and the CMMI. Read, learn and enjoy!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

I would first like to say thank you very much for making CMMI interesting. That, I think we all know is not an easy task. Haven't seen you much on the youtubes lately, I assume its because of 2.0.

My main question is, I know CMMI for 2.0 has been out for several months for DEV and SVC is still in the works, I heard a rumor saying that 2.0 for DEV is being pulled back from the institute for some tweaks, any idea what that is about? If that is the case, what would happen to those who've already received the 2.0 training for DEV?

Keep up the great work Jeff! Look forward to more videos!!
