When I started this blog last year, I decided to do it in English. My aim was to reach a broader (worldwide) audience, thus sharing my experience with more people than would be possible in Dutch (my mothers tongue).
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.

When I started this website back in july, I mentioned that my main reason to start blogging was to share my experiences.
In an earlier posting I highlighted the clarification of the high maturity process areas in this new CMMI version. This time I’m going into changes in the model architecture, which is about how to deploy the CMMI by “tailoring” it toward your needs.
The CMMI V1.3 has been released just a couple of days ago. I know that many process improvement experts are looking for information, to find out what has changed. Below a first set of links to get you started.
