A goal of CMMI V2.0 is to “truly demonstrate the capability of my organization and ensure a focus on continuous improvement”. This will be accomplished by:
- Providing more timely appraisals: The ability to conduct more frequent appraisals gives stakeholders more confidence in your organization’s current state and Maturity Level status.
- Adding Performance practices at all levels: CMMI V2.0 highlights that Performance is important for organizations at any level and provides a path to high maturity.
- Requiring a performance report that is provided to the appraisal sponsor to enable more effective addressing of performance results
- Transforming Generic Practices to Institutionalization Practice Areas: This enables your organization to institutionalize your process, not the CMMI model.
The combination of the above will ensure that you understand and are managing not just your capability and maturity on an ongoing basis but also the performance of your organization.
