Selling Agile to the CFO: A Guide for Development Teams

Seven tips to get your CFO on board for agile development.

Capability Maturity Model Integration, or CMMI, refers to collections of best practices that help organizations assess and make improvements to processes. CMMI-DEV provides a specific, comprehensive framework for organizations to assess development and maintenance processes and make performance gains.


Rather than focusing on only one part or just a few parts of the business, as many current maturity models do, CMMI-DEV takes a systematic approach that provides integrated, enterprise-wide solutions to organizational problems. The best practices presented by CMMI-DEV apply to development activities for products and services, and they cover a product's lifecycle from the concept phase on through delivery and maintenance. CMMI-DEV also accommodates other contemporary approaches such as Six Sigma, Lean and agile methods.


If you are considering implementing the CMMI-DEV framework in your organization, check out our excerpt from "CMMI for Development: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement." This chapter, the introduction for the book, describes:

  • Critical areas where an organization can improve its business
  • A brief overview of the history of the CMMI approach, as well as its evolution
  • The architecture of the CMMI framework
