This presentation will show how to apply the CMMI in a business focussed way, by doing frequent assessments. Goals are input to the planning of assessments, a matrix is used to assure both organisation and process area coverage, and the results of assessments integrate smoothly within operational targets of existing groups within the organisation.

Practical tools support the frequent assessments, and experience with the CMMI is used to optimize the assessment and improvement cycle, resulting in continuously improving the performance of the organisation towards its goals.
