A Traveler’s Guide: State of Michigan’s CMMI Journey

April 21

1:45 PM - 2:20 PM

The State of Michigan’s CMMI Journey began more than a decade ago. We’ve seen significant improvements, hit a few potholes, and are still quite a distance from our destination. It’s been a great ride and we’re still on the journey. This presentation covers points of interest and previews of coming attractions. Michigan’s State Unified Information Technology Environment (SUITE) is based on CMMI plus other models such as APH, PMBOK, Agile/Scrum, SAFe, ITIL, and VAL IT. We leverage an enterprise tool to report project performance metrics. Recently our journey was fueled leveraging CMMI’s PQA practices, Agile transformation, and benchmark assessments in CMMI and APH.
