The CMMI describes the principles and practices underlying software process maturity and is intended to help software organizations improve the maturity of their software processes in terms of an evolutionary path from ad hoc, chaotic processes to mature,disciplined software processes.
CMMI Consulting is about guidance in implementation for 22 process areas of CMMI which is a structured collection of best practices in the area of software and system design and development. CMMI Consulting is not essentially management system consulting to the extent that it does not cover design of a management system but emphasizes on use of best practices in Software and System design and development.
CMMI Assessments like assessments based on SCAMPI Assessment Methods provide you with a report card on your Process Improvement Efforts. These CMMI Assessments also help you in prioritizing the areas of improvement and facilitate the development of strategy for consolidating the process improvements on a sustainable basis.
