Track: CMMI Appraisals: Best Practices
Presentation Title: High Maturity Appraisals- Navigating a Course in Unchartered Waters
Presentation Summary: After being comfortable at Maturity Level 3 for almost a decade, preparing for the High Maturity appraisal was new territory and we knew there would be choppy waters ahead. This presentation will walk the audience through our 22 month journey, with a focused lens on our three high maturity appraisals; two SCAMPI Bs and the final SCAMPI A for the rating. This presentation will include sharing of lessons learned, team composition tips, leadership requirements, as well as insights into the differences in planning and preparing for each of the SCAMPIs on the journey.
