The CMMI for Services has proven an excellent framework for reducing overhead through Lean principles. Overhead reduction depends on the elimination of process waste, smoothing data flow and improving the quality of data, and more efficient integration of technologies into the process. Savings of 10% to 20% are considered minimal. The use of Value Steam Mapping is an essential element of improvement.
We provide expert guidance and mentorship to enable the client to implement CMMI model views as efficiently and expertly as possible. A clear understanding of the intent of each Practice Area and its practices, and an early focus on the support of business objectives ensure a high value, cost-effective implementation. We will help you define processes, select technologies, and define the knowledge bases that enable them to work effectively. And we will be sure you are exposed to a full understanding of the power of adjunct improvement methods, such as Lean Operations, the agile corporation, or data flow analysis.
Quality is typically thought of as the removal of defects from the service stream or product. The repeated application of the CMMI, through Practice Areas such as Causal Analysis, Process Management, Decision Analysis, Managing Performance and Measures have produced permanent quality improvements. Management of critical service or product quality is enabled by High Maturity (Levels 4 and 5) improvement mechanisms.
Increasing service capacity becomes a manageable problem with the CMMI. The model doesn't just enable the business process which improve capabilities and the capacity for services, but does so in a stable business framework that eliminates
"unintended consequences" and the introduction of waste.
Development or service speed is dependent on agility, closeness to the customer, the elimination of defects, and the proactive, on-going management of process performance. The CMMI provides an excellent framework for improvements in speed, as well as the integration of development or corporate agility.
Marketplace percentage depends on brand credibility and service or development excellence. The CMMI provides the structure to allow you to meet these challenges head-on.
Version 2.0 of the CMMI is structured for one purpose: managing the improvement of business capabilities so that those capabilities may be used to achieve business objectives. The structure of the model, and every Practice Area and Practice are sharply focused on this purpose. Give it a try.
