  • Abstract:    A multi-model process improvement approach can bring large benefits to an organization that produces software products and services and wants to be innovative. This presentation illustrates this idea by bringing together three specific models: Innovation, CMMI-DEV, and CMMI-SVC. The CMMI-DEV constellation (ML5) brings new ways for organizations to quantitatively manage their processes and quality performance goals, projects, and innovation. CMMI-SVC works as a catalyst for a service culture. The Innovation Norm (NP 4457) helps establish a Research Development and Innovation (RDI) management system across the organization. The presentation will address the synergies and challenges that development and services bring to an innovation model.
  • in process oriented organizations
  • Por o diagrama de cmmi for services nosso com os niveisMaturity Level 2: ManagedAt maturity level 2, projects establish the foundation for an organizationto become an effective service provider by institutionalizing basicProject Management, Support, and Service Establishment and Deliverypractices. Projects define a project strategy, create project plans, andmonitor and control the project to ensure the service is delivered asplanned. The service provider establishes agreements with customersas well as develops and manages customer and contractualrequirements. Configuration management and process and productquality assurance are institutionalized, and the service provider alsodevelops the capability to measure and analyze process performance.At maturity level 2, projects, processes, work products, and services aremanaged. The service provider ensures that processes are planned inaccordance with policy. In order to execute the process, the serviceprovider: provides adequate resources, assigns responsibility forperforming the process, trains people on the process, and ensures thedesignated work products of the process are under appropriate levels ofconfiguration management. The service provider identifies and involvesappropriate stakeholders and periodically monitors and controls theprocess. Process adherence is periodically evaluated and process performance is shared with senior management. The process disciplinereflected by maturity level 2 helps to ensure that existing practices are retained during times of stress.

  • On top of that the fact that a model was needed that didn’t constrain itself for IT related business but to services in any line of businessesCMMI for Services was a breakthrough in the best practices spectrum. With the process capability aspects provided by the CMMI framework, these new service management best practices filled the gap that was missing in process oriented organizations for some type of activities that are continuous and involve less engineeringContexto complexidade crescente querer inovar transversalmente por toda a empresa querer ter alta maturidade no desenvolvimento software querer melhorar os serviços e suporte de organização continuamenteContar evolução históricaDevelopmentCMMI 3 -> CMMI 5 …Innovation -> RDI …Services-> CMMI 2 …

  • Project typicalytranslatesonproduct/productline – withorganizationsbettingon reuse
  • For organizations that already have processes derived from CMMI for development practices there’s are clear advantages to consider that resolve long lasting questions, namely:
  • Customers want to continuously manage services and customer expectation … For example response time:Time to correct a bug or malfunctionTime to implement a new requirementIn the case of Ambisig show case– it led to a breakthrough: a new area of training services was created a new mechanism to make it easier to create new servicesA Monthly Services meeting was created:For continuous services improvementTo articulate with client to have more feedbackFor example maintenance was not properly organized “it was a poor cousin inside the company” started to get more visibilityCustomers want to be sure they get maximum value for the money they spend. Customerswant that you continuously manage services and customer expectation … In example response time – to correct a bug/or malfunction - to implement a new requirementIn the case of Ambisig – it lead to a breakthrough a new are a of training services was created a new mechanism to make it easier to create new services
  • -A better transition from the project phase to the service phase (example: maintenance service) where’s it’s important to have in mind the necessary steps for a smooth service setup (change, configuration and release management)http://www.upyourservice.com/learning-library/customer-service-vision/in-challenging-times-service-matters-mostCustomers want firmer guarantees that their purchase was the right thing to do. In good times, a single bad purchase can be quickly overlooked or forgotten, but in tough times, every expenditure is scrutinized. Provide the assurance your customers seek with generous service guarantees, regular follow-up and speedy follow-through on all queries and complaints. Customer service quality matters more than you think.
  • More income – raise on billingEx: new “chargeable” services areas: training and coachingCompany realized it was “giving away free” some servicesService reports are now sent to the customerCustomer started to appreciate more and recognize the value added of the provided servicesIfyouhave 100 clients in servicesyoujustdontloosethemall …. Its more constant
  • Some challenges arise implementing of service management practices in traditionally development companies:
  • Service contrast with project – possibility of a steady and continuous incomeTalk about process mapping Alternatives:-To have a work management process that combines Services and Project Management (our first choice) -> too much exceptions need to be written in a single process – it can get confusing-To have separated Services and Project Management process and then join in a work management process (our choice now)Service delivery – example if someone calls and ask for real-time support (is that a service we do? Is it time registered and billed?) -> if not, then maybe we should create that service

Models Sub Process Control • Control sub-processes critical to achieving the objectives Causal Analysis • Investigate anomalies found in analyses 16
    18. 18. The NP 4457 model and PP and PMC • Both NP 4457 and CMMI deal with innovation projects that have to be planned and monitored through its lifecycle • Both models require previous analysis to classify a project as an innovation one • Planning should consider the project innovation objectives and return expected results (ROI) • Innovation projects should include information about the expected improvement as well as the verification and validation method for the innovation expected • Knowledge should be spread and shared across the organization 17
    19. 19. The NP 4457 model and OPP, OPM • NP 4457 is a more broad model in terms of knowledge covering also the market innovation • The OPP practice in CMMI requires a quantitative approach which is not required in NP 4457 • Both models have assessment methods based on interviews and artifacts evaluation (objective evidence) • OPP is internationally adopted through the implementation of CMMI while NP 4457 is a Portuguese model based on the Oslo Innovation Manual 18
    20. 20. Case Study – Multimodel (DEV5+SRV2+RDI) Processes that we defined: • Work Management process (for services and projects) • Requirement Management process(for services and projects) • Service establishment process – in order to setup new services in the company • Service delivery process - ex: receive a request; check it’s in the catalog of services, solve the request • Ideas Management (NP4457) • Innovation Management (NP4457) • Apart from … traditional – quality control, metrics, configuration management with some adaptations • Lessons learned • Separate project management and service management processes – its easier • Innovation processes are independent of the nature of work, but usualy start as an innovation project. 19

    25. 25. Part IVBENEFITS 24
    26. 26. Advantages for using CMMI serv The implementation of processes that are related to maintenance or “very small” projects where a service philosophy applies better Services must now follow clear work instructions (and not a project management methodology) -The creation of a culture of service where the solutions that are built are intended for customers with expectations and needs in terms of service levels This internal awareness provides a better focus on the usability aspects and nonfunctional requirements 25
    27. 27. Advantages for using CMMI serv -The importance of a systematic feedback from the services to the development teams provide insight about the utilization and errors in place (incident, problem and service level management, measurement and analysis) ―Customers want more attention, more appreciation and more recognition when making their purchases with you, not less. Customer service quality is simply essential. Now we have a more clear continuous improvement of our services‖, Vasco Ferreira – CEO Ambisig 26
    28. 28. Advantages to the client- Services are a continuous source of income (example contract for maintenance)• a Project has a finishing date and a total cost• services have ―no end date‖-To keep clients fidelity the service has to be well structured • the more efficient the bigger profit you have = With Services area more structured -> revenue is higher and more constant 27
    29. 29. Part VCHALLENGES 28
    30. 30. Challenges of Multimodel useDEV5 + SRV2 + RDI • Manage the risk level of several model implementations • Integrate the new models with the existing ones in the organization • Manage models that cover different areas of the organization • Distinguish between small improvement and innovation • Integrate the NP 4457 and CMMI with the existing Ambisig’s quality models 29
    31. 31. Success Factors • Organization strong process framework, definition and culture • Detailed planning and very strict follow-up • Strong change management process • Strong sponsorship and organization involvement • Tools integration and development in order to fulfill the existing models • Starting point of current processes and development from there • External contribution, overall expertise, dedication and apolitical 30
    32. 32. Parte VICONCLUSIONS 31
    33. 33. Conclusions forof this multimodel combination Users of CMMI dev … by using CMMI serv: Companies that already have processes in place in line with CMMI for Development have the cost for this new direction greatly reduced - specially for CMMI SRV ML2 Adding NP4457 innovation model allows us to go to a new level services and products innovation – allowing the company to reinvent it self in order to survive and compete in turbulent times, always knowing their RD&I ROI 32
    34. 34. Conclusions • Benefits adding Services : • Services became more clear and accountable • More sources of income (new services arise) • Customer recognizes easier the added value of services • The company started to value more services itself, structuring then to help keeping client “fidelity” • The more efficient services, the higher is the profit • Service culture can improve: company, the service department, the relation with clients … as well as the income/profit • Benefits from adding Innovation models: • Continuous Innovation is the final throttle to speed up innovation – Guaranty continuous innovation Independently of where you are in the organization … – … one of the most important thing is to build a cultural of organization wide focused on innovation ($) 33
    35. 35. Results • CMMI brought improvements on the cost, schedule and quality areas • NP 4457 introduced a process to search and introduce innovation – all across the organization • The implementation of multimodel improved knowledge share in the organization – and growth in maturity/capacity • The tools have been improved and brought improvements on the productivity of the organization 34
    36. 36. Results of Multimodel • CMMI brought improvements on the cost, schedule and quality areas • NP 4457 introduced a process to search and introduce innovation – all across the organization • The implementation of multimodel improved knowledge share in the organization – and growth in maturity/capacity • The tools have been improved and brought improvements on the productivity of the organization 35
    37. 37. General Conclusions • It is highly recommended that your organization moves into multimodel implementation approach, if you have the needed resources . • The implementation of these models makes innovation better and deeply treated by using a ideas and innovation management processes - both services and development. • Time and effort spent in multimodel implementation is smaller if made gradually on different areas • Ambisig moved deeper in the process improvement road with CMMI level 5 for development and CMMI level 2 for services, with a new vision on innovative process implementation (NP4457). • The effort spent by both Ambisig and Strongstep is now paying off both internally and externally – new projects, more revenue and helping internationalization (Example: European Space Agency) 36
