Quatrième de couverture

Many organizations use Capability Maturity Models® (CMMs®) to assess development and maintenance processes, implement improvements, and measure progress. Although consistent in purpose, these models differ in terminology and design--enough sometimes to cause conflict and confusion when used within the same organization. Addressing the need for a more coordinated approach, Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) provides a single framework for improvement in software engineering, systems engineering, integrated product and process development, and supplier sourcing.

This book is the definitive reference for the most current release of CMMI models. To use a CMMI model available on the SEI Web site, users must choose from among multiple models based on their organization's improvement needs. This book provides a single source for all CMMI model information. Readers can get started without having to select a model first--all of the choices are compiled in one place and explained in detail.

The book begins with background information needed to understand the content and structure of these integrated models and how to use them. A case study illustrates their implementation in a real environment. A variety of practical material, such as glossary and index, is also provided. The bulk of the book comprises the content of all CMMI models, covering the 25 process areas (PAs) that span the product life cycle, including detailed best practices.

All CMMI models have two representations. The continuous representation allows an organization to improve using selected PAs at different rates. The staged representation enables organizations to follow a predefined and proven improvement path using multiple PAs. Both representations are described so that readers will more clearly see the similarities and differences between the two representations and will be able to choose the right approach for their organization.

Whether you are new to CMMI or are already familiar with some version of it, this book is an essential resource for managers, practitioners, and process improvement team members who need to understand, evaluate, and/or implement a CMMI model. The ultimate objective of CMMI is integrating processes to improve products; this book contains everything you need to get that done.

Wish I had this book last year 15 mai 2005
Par David Bock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Last year my company was rated a CMM level 2 organization, and we decided to begin the transition to CMMi Level 3. Even though we are working with a consultant, the amount of new material was daunting... 'What is the difference between CMM and CMMi?', 'What is the staged vs. continuous representation?', 'what are all of the se SW/SE and iPPD pieces of the CMMi? Are they Optional?'. There are a TON of questions, and answers can be hard to find, especially when the 'official' docs are about as exciting to read as the little pamphlets that come with perscription medicines.

This book answers those questions and more, explaining in pretty practical language what the CMMi is, what the structure of the whole model is about, and finally tunneling down into the details of each process area. I wish I had that knowledge when we were making some of our initial decisions.

I'm not exactly a fan of the CMM/CMMi methodologies, but I have experienced first hand the result of the improvement efforts we have introduced. Ultimately though, I don't think it matters much WHAT methodology you are following; a group of people interested in improving themselves will do well with any methodology, CMMi, RUP, Agile, or otherwise. If you are committed to the CMMi approach, this book needs to be in your toolchest. If you are evaluating different process improvement efforts, this book will help you understand the CMMi approach. It doesn't provide any comparison or contrast to other methodologies; for that you would need other reference material.

Easy to Use 14 mars 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
For all of you who have spiral binders or those huge 3-ring binders of the CMMI model, this is the book for you. It is condensed, addresses both staged and continuous representations and has from what I can tell all the information from the 725 page version available from the SEI website. It is organized a little differently but, it is pretty user friendly. It has tab like features that identify the process areas and the process areas are in alphabetical order - very easy to use. I know carry this around with me like I used to carry around the CMM hardcover version.

not many "productive" pages 24 avril 2004
Par Gerold Keefer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
- 447 pages are a 1:1 copy of the freely available CMMI 1.1
process area description.
- 33 pages consist of a case study of a CMMI implementation.
- 70 pages are references, glossary and index.
- the remainging 100 pages are a re-hash of general
CMMI information plus -more importantly- additional
information on the interpretation of generic goals and
on process areas relationships revealing that around
15 process areas are "fundamental" and the rest is
"progressive". my interpretation of "fundamental" is
"you need them really".
overall it would have been more precise if the title would
read "CMMI 1.1 annotated reference".
UPDATE 2004-04-24:
re-reading parts of the book i have to further downgrade it:
1. in the preface section it gives the misleading advice that
the CMMI can be used for service industries and that it covers
the whole product life cycle. this is not true: the CMMI is a
standard for development only.
2. the book further claims that the CMMI is the best model
for process improvement. there is no evidence i am aware of
that supports this claim.
3. the book recommends to use the staged representation
of the CMMI in case of uncertainty. this is a highly doubtful
advice considering the fact the the PA sequence of the stage
representation has major disadvantages.
best regards,

More convenient & easier to use than official docs 24 mars 2004
Par Mike Tarrani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book does two things well - (1) provides an overview of the CMMI and its benefits, and (2) covers the process areas in detail, with advice on how to institutionalize them. This is not a 'how to implement' book, and is best suited for anyone who wants to learn about the CMMI or who is working in a CMMI organization and wants an authoratative reference on a specific process area.
Reasons to buy this book instead of obtaining the 'official documentation' from SEI (see ASIN B0000Y4PCA)include:
- Better organized. Finding specific information among the documents you can obtain from SEI can sometimes be a daunting task. Yes, it's complete, but there are multiple documents, and this book has distilled and organized all of the pertinent information between two covers.
- Case studies in this book add life to the material, and the overall writing style of all of the material in this book is more readable. The SEI document set includes some well-written material to be sure, but there is also dense text that is a chore to wade through from a readability standpoint.
For understanding the CMMI this book is one of the best, in my opinion. It gives the evolution of the CMMI from the earlier CMM models, discusses key benefits, and goes into details. However, if you already understand the CMMI, and are seeking information for implementation I recommend "Interpreting the CMMI: A Process Improvement Approach" (ISBN 0849316545). That book outlines how to implement the CMMI and provides a wealth of supporting material.

The Definitive CMMI Blueprint 15 mars 2006
Par R. Orenbaun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I would have to say that the presentation of the material within this manual is one of the best I have seen. The first 5 chapters of the book provide an excellent introduction to the model, descriptions of the process areas and their relationships to one another, guidance for institutionalization and finally instruction on how to tie all this together. Chapter 6 provides some information on other models and their similarities and differences as compared to the CMMI. The case study in chapter 7 is a very useful overview of how the CMMI can be implemented in a real world scenario.

The rest of the book, some 450 pages, covers the integral details of the individual process areas, as well as the specific and generic goals and practices to fully implement the model. It can be information overload at first for the neophyte process engineer. However, once one is acclimated to the processes this manual will serve as a ready technical bible for guidance through the Process Improvement morass using CMMI.

Be advised though that nowhere in the CMMI, nor in this manual, is there any specific implementation instructions on how to actually execute an activity. For that one should look to the IEEE or ITIL libraries for templates and examples. Alternatively, if you are serious about CMMI and your goal is to achieve successful SCAMPI assessments; finding/hiring an experienced process engineer or consulting company to lead you or your team through this exercise is highly recommended.
