  4. 4. Copyright © 2020 Compliance Power 365 4 CMMI specific experience: • We’ve prepared 4 companies for their CMMI appraisals. (Very difficult assignments!) • Have served as CMMI Appraisal Team Member for (30) Maturity Level 3 appraisals, 2017 to 2020. • Previously trained as ATM for CMMI-DEV, CMMI-SVC, and CMMI-ACQ appraisals. • Now trained and certified as CMMI Associate for CMMI V2.0. Under the category “lessons learned” … In 2018, Compliance Power 365 authored a software system for a CMMI Lead Appraiser that was similar in several ways to CMMI 365. The previous system was licensed for $14,000 per company and sold to more than a dozen companies. The software system is no longer sold as of early 2020. By comparison, the CMMI 365 system is far superior in functionality yet costs less than half of the previous system. Based on hard won, hands-on experience we know what works and what doesn’t work to prepare a company for their CMMI appraisal. About Compliance Power 365 – page 2 of 2

The default text can be updated on the fly, if desired. For each question, Gap Analysis responses are No, Yes, Partially, Alternate Approach. Responses for the 12 Gap Analysis questions are weighted for a total weighted score of 100. The goal is to answer Yes to every question and get a score of 100.

  12. 12. Copyright © 2020 Compliance Power 365 12 Team Scoring It’s easy to enter a weekly Team Score. Just make a judgement about the Practice, enter the Score, a Summary, and detail Comments. Appraisal preparation teams sometimes engage 3rd party consultants to perform ”readiness reviews”. This is where the Consultant can enter their opinion on the readiness of each Practice. The Team Score, Summary, and Comment can be Posted to Teams and/or sent to team members via email. Most Appraisal Preparation teams use a combination of structured Gap Analysis (for example, perform a Gap Analysis every 4 weeks), and entering free-form Team Scores using their best judgement.
