cmmi AP• CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) is a proven industry framework to improve product quality and development efficiency for both hardware and software
– Sponsored by US Department of Defence in cooperation with Carnegie Mellon University and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI)
– CMMI has been established as a model to improve business results
• CMMI, staged, uses 5 levels to describe the maturity of the organization, same as predecessor CMM
– Vastly improved version of the CMM
– Emphasis on business needs, integration and institutionalization

Our team of highly experienced Lead Appraisers and Auditor has advised many leading IT, ITES and Engineering services organizations in deploying CMMi Level 3 & Level 5 Implementation.

Training Programs &Duration:

 

1. CMMi Overview Training:

This three-day course introduces managers and practitioners, appraisal team members, and process improvement teams to CMMI fundamental concepts. This provides an implementation perspective to stake holders of an organization as it initiates its CMMi Journey Objectives

This course enables participants to:

•  Describe the components of the CMMI model
•  Discuss the process areas
•  Describe the model content
The course is composed of lectures and class exercises with ample opportunity for participant questions and discussions. Successful completion of this course requires that participants actively participate in classroom discussions and exercises in all three days, not missing any classroom time. This course fulfills a prerequisite requirement for many courses requiring an official Introductory CMMI course (e.g., Intermediate Concepts of CMMI, SCAMPI Lead Appraiser Training, and Understanding CMMI High Maturity Practices). This course also fulfills a prerequisite if you want to be a CMMI-DEV SCAMPI appraisal team member (ATM) or become a Certified CMMI Associate.  

2. Leadership training sessions:

This program provides and improves organizational capability to assess strengths and weakness of processes (process compliance audits) and take improvement actions; Also To improve the risk management process at organizational level and meet the requirements of the model. Objectives

This course enables participants to:

•  Deploying CMMi at Organizational Level •  Strengthening Audit Systems •  Risk Management •  Appraisal Method & Expectation Setting   Project Support:  

3.  Gap analysis:

A formal gap analysis of the quality system including both adequacy of documentation and practice implementation vis-à-vis the requirements of the targeted maturity/capability level of the organization. The results of the gap analysis are used by the organization to determine their improvement strategy.  

4. Implementation reviews:

These reviews evaluate the degree of institutionalization and corrective actions are proposed.  

5. Check point reviews:

These reviews provide a ‘go’ / ‘no go’ for a SCAMPI appraisal.

CMMi Appraisal Services Offerings:

Symbio Consults offers SCAMPISM Appraisal services for organizations embarking on their process improvement initiatives.

SCAMPI Appraisals:

•   Depending on the need of the organization, either a SCAMPI ‘B / C‘ or SCAMPI ‘A’ appraisal is conducted
•   SCAMPI 'A' could be used for establishing a benchmark for the organization. A typical SCAMPI ‘A’ appraisal is carried out by a Lead Appraiser supported by a ATMs and will include ATM training, Appraisal participant briefing, Initial documentation review, Interviews with the practitioners, findings consolidation, rating generation and reporting to SEI. The focus of SCAMPI 'A' is to validate the institutionalization
•   SCAMPI 'B' could be used for checking the deployment of processes in projects. A typical SCAMPI ‘B’ appraisal is carried out by a Lead Appraiser or a person trained and experienced in carrying out SCAMPI 'B'. SCAMPI 'B' does not lead to generation of rating
•   SCAMPI 'C' could be used for reviewing the process descriptions and the approach taken to satisfy the goals of CMMI. SCAMPI 'C' does not lead to generation of rating.
•   SM CMM Integration; Personal Software Process; PSP; SCAMPI; SCAMPI Lead Appraiser; Team Software Process; and TSP are service marks of Carnegie Mellon University.
