When I worked at Ericsson I used Scrum to manage Process Improvement projects, where it turned out to be a real enabler for Continuous Improvement.
In october 2010, version 1.3 of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) has been released by the Software Engineering Institute. I’ve published several articles on the benefits of CMMI V1.3. This is (for now) the last article, which sums it all up.
There are 3 CMMI V1.3 models released: CMMI for Acquisition (ACQ), CMMI for Services (SVC), and CMMI for Development (DEV). The CMMI V1.3 makes it easier to combine process areas from different models, thus supporting continuous improvement that delivers quicker business results.

Ben Linders goes Dutch? Niet helemaal, maar vanaf nu is mijn website tweetalig. Er komen zowel Engelstalige als Nederlandstalige berichten. Voor alle Nederlandse lezers: Welkom!
In two previous posting on the CMMI roadmaps for CMMI V1.3, I described how the project roadmap and the product and product integration roadmaps have been improved. This posting covers the last 2 roadmaps: process and measurements.
Business needs for process improvement projects are changing. Organizations expect faster results from their process improvement investments; they want their improvement to follow changing business needs and be more engrained in the organization.
The book "Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies, Understanding Patterns of project behavior" contains 86 patterns, written in an easy readable and recognizable style which make you think about how people behave in projects.
In a first posting on the CMMI roadmaps for CMMI V1.3, I described how the project roadmap has been improved to deliver an even better result. In this posting I’m covering the product and the product integration roadmap.
