Over the last few years, the expectations on the implementation of high maturity practices of CMMI have gone up several notches. It has been a difficult and exciting journey for many organizations in revamping their measurement systems and their approach to metrics.
Organizations that consider the new requirements as a "delta" over what have been earlier doing have struggled and not been able to transition smoothly. On the other hand, organizations that have "unlearned" their old habits and ways of thinking, kept an open mind and aligned themselves to the new way have been able to make the transition smoothly.
The talk focuses on the new way of statistical thinking, and the typical mistakes that organizations make in implementation. Key areas covered are:
* Sub-process control
* Process Performance Models and composing the defined process
* Quantitatively managing process improvements
The talk concludes with a summary of the expectations for a true and robust implementation of high maturity practices.
