CMMI V1.3 Process Areas

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a proven framework for improving software development and management. A wealth of knowledge and experience is available on how to deploy the CMMI effectively, stand-alone or in combination with Agile or Lean. This page provides an overview of the process areas in the different CMMI models, and resources for deploying the CMMI. Usage of these resources is encouraged, any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Combining Agile and CMMI

One major change in CMMI V1.3 is the addition of agile. The many elaborations on agile help you to recognize an agile implementation of a process area. If you use the CMMI as an improvement model, then the agile additions are helpful but not sufficient to implement agile practices into an organization.

The People CMM roadmap for implementing agile helps organizations to establish and improve their workforce, and assure that the right conditions are established for Agile teams to excel their performance.

Additional information on combining Agile and CMMI can be found in:

    Your Process Areas Table needs some updating.  You have ”
    Service Establishment and Delivery” 
    PAs listed under CMMI-Dev instead of Services.  you should also combine the Project/Work Management with the Project Management categories so PAs like Risk Management are grouped together as CORE PAs.  It’s a good concept that just needs some corrections and tweaking.
