Key Factors for Sustained Level 5 Success

Conference Track: Business Results Through CMMI

Our Next Generation Delivery and Innovation Center in Spain provides services through a network of 2100+ professionals working in 8 locations. We started our trip at CMMI in 1999 and since 2003 we have maintained level 5. We have passed the last SCAMPI in July 2017. Our main challenge to address is the continued growth of the center. Since 2014 we have increased 25% the number of projects managed and 80% the amount of resources working in our units. Today we have more than 60 active managed projects. We must also maintain the focus on optimizing and seeking efficiency with our process assets, sustaining the institutionalization.
