Version 1.3 (3 days)

This three-day course introduces the participant to the CMMI concepts for both its staged and continuous representation. The CMMI supports enterprise-wide improvements through an integration of best practices for organizations involved in developing products and services relying on technology, and is fast becoming the new international de facto standard.

Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for Intermediate Concepts of CMMI, SCAMPISM Lead Appraiser Training, and CMMI Instructor Training.

Participants receive the "CMMI: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement (3nd Edition)" by Mary Beth Chrissis, Mike Konrad, and Sandy Shrum, and "Reducing Risk with Software Process Improvement" by Louis A. Poulin.
