Consistency and Autonomy: An Environment for Creativity

Conference Track: Innovative Approaches with CMMI

Consistency is one key aspect not just for the CMMI model but for every organization that wants to improve performance and efficiency. CMMI has several goals and practices to make sure organizations get it. However, by giving autonomy to teams, people tend to assume those teams will now necessarily have consistency, making it impossible to build a common ground across teams. By using strong and sound configuration management principles, built on a engineering culture, we can achieve both autonomy and consistency. In this talk, I will show some examples from industries that were able to orchestrate both parameters.
