804 KB | 3 files |  DOC, PDF

This excerpt from "CMMI for Development" provides background on the CMMI-DEV model, which organizations can use to assess their product or service development and maintenance processes, and improve performance.

CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) describes best practices for the development and maintenance of products and services across their lifecycle. By integrating essential bodies of knowledge, CMMI-DEV provides a single, comprehensive framework for organizations to assess their development and maintenance processes and improve performance. Already widely adopted throughout the world for disciplined, high-quality engineering, CMMI-DEV Version 1.3 now accommodates other modern approaches as well, including the use of agile methods, Lean, Six Sigma and architecture-centric development.

The third edition of “CMMI for Development: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement” is the definitive reference for CMMI-DEV Version 1.3. The authors have revised their tips, hints and cross-references, which appear in the margins of the book, to help you better understand, apply and find information about the content of each process area. The book includes new and updated perspectives on CMMI-DEV in which people influential in the model’s creation, development and transition share brief but valuable insights. It also features four new case studies and five contributed essays with practical advice for adopting and using CMMI-DEV. This book is an essential resource — whether you are new to CMMI-DEV or are familiar with an earlier version — if you need to know about, evaluate or put the latest version of the model into practice.

This excerpt is from Chapter One of “CMMI for Development: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement,” Third Edition, by Mary Beth Chrissis, Mike Konrad and Sandra Shrum. The book was published by Pearson/Addison-Wesley Professional, March 2011, Copyright 2011 by Pearson Education. For further info please visit the publisher site:
