A high-level overview of CMMI V2.0 and its applicability of its best practices to product development (hardware and/or software), service delivery, and acquisition of products and services

The CMMI® V2.0 is an integrated set of best practices that enable businesses to improve performance of their key business processes. At its core, the CMMI V2.0 provides a clear roadmap for building, improving, and sustaining business capabilities.  Knowing your key capabilities creates new business value.  Capabilities drive performance and performance drives process improvement.  The architecture and design of CMMI V2.0 is a radical departure from its predecessors by making the model more useful and adoptable to customers and businesses.  This presentation provides a high-level overview of CMMI V2.0 and its applicability of its best practices to product development (hardware and/or software), service delivery, and acquisition of products and services, with the primary focus on deriving business value by achieving business objectives related to:

  • Performance
  • Quality
