Presentation Title: Enabling and Scaling CMMI-based Excellence in a Lean Startup World
Presentation Summary: This presentation will focus on how to realize the benefits of CMMI-based excellence in organizations characterized by rapid product development lifecycles and a culture of experimentation for validating ideas using the Lean Startup approach. I will share experiences from a recent CMMI-DEV ML3 implementation coupled with Lean Startup and Design Thinking. I will share how this integrated approach reduced the typical cycle time for enabling an organization's readiness for CMMI-DEV ML3 and helped to build a culture that supports experimentation and rewards innovation.
