What is CMMI?

What is CMMI? The answer depends on you.
What business problems are you trying to solve?

Do you need to reduce defects and lower costs? Is on-time delivery a challenge? Improving productivity? Are you striving for increased quality and more satisfied customers?

Are you looking to advance your career with training or certification? Or do you need to find capable suppliers?

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) is a capability improvement model that can be adapted to solve any performance issue at any level of the organization in any industry. The Model provides guidelines and recommendations for helping your organization diagnose problems and improve performance. Used by over 5000 organizations from more than 70 countries all over the world, CMMI helps you identify and achieve measurable business goals.

Product and service providers, procurement officers and human capital managers all face different challenges. Because CMMI provides guidance for improvement across multiple process disciplines in your organization, you can use it to identify and achieve any measurable performance goal.
