How can I become a CMMI Badass?

Hey, CMMI Appraiser, how can I become a CMMI Badass? ~ Joey T.

Hey, Joey - the latest class of CMMI Badasses is officially trained, certified, and riding to a town near you!

What is a CMMI® Badass?

  • A CMMI Badass understands that CMMI give you more control over the way you do your work.
  • A CMMI Badass knows that changing your company can't be done with a tool that promises “CMMI compliance in six months or less."
  • A CMMI Badass doesn't care about certificates or "plaque buildup."  It's about the rush of high performance.
  • A CMMI Badass knows that "creating evidence to pass" is a huge waste of time
  • A CMMI Badass knows why the company is adopting CMMI
  • A CMMI Badass captures data about whether or the team is benefiting from the CMMI.
