Track: CMMI Appraisals: Best Practices

Presentation Title: When the Appraiser Becomes the Appraised

Presentation Summary: SCAMPI Lead Appraisers constantly advise organizations on how to implement the CMMI but almost as importantly, how to prepare for a SCAMPI Class A appraisal. But how many SCAMPI Lead Appraisers have to live their own advice? This SCAMPI Lead Appraiser not only goes around torturing other organizations with SCAMPI appraisals but has had to be appraised for his own company to get rated at CMMI-SVC Maturity Level 3. Having been on both sides of the appraisal now, this presentation will give tips on how best to prepare for a SCAMPI Class A as both an appraiser and an appraised.
