Developing Level 3 Capability in Small Organizations

Conference Track: Business Results Through CMMI

How do we simultaneously manage product and service delivery in a small organization, while developing sound maturity level 3 organizational processes?

This presentation discusses innovative solutions and experience implementing tools and techniques to develop, deploy, improve, and monitor delivery in teams where members fulfill multiple process roles.
