Track: CMMI Appraisals

Presentation Title: Improving Appraisal Evidence Collection and Review Efficiency

Presentation Summary: Organizations want to ensure high quality appraisals, but do so in the most efficient manner. Legacy techniques for collecting and reviewing evidence are disjointed and inefficient, defeating key sponsor goals. Presenting evidence in "threads" increases user friendliness for both internal personnel and the appraisal team, which increases the quality of the results and reduces overall appraisal lifecycle costs.
