McMahon, Paul E. Addison-Wesley, 2010.
Many organizations that have improved process maturity through Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) now also want greater agility. Conversely, many organizations that are succeeding with Agile methods now want the benefits of more mature processes. The solution is to integrate CMMI® and Agile. Integrating CMMI® and Agile Development offers broad guidance for melding these process improvement methodologies. It presents six detailed case studies, along with essential real-world lessons, big-picture insights, and mistakes to avoid.
Drawing on decades of process improvement experience, author Paul McMahon explains how combining an Agile approach with the CMMI® process improvement framework is the fastest, most effective way to achieve your business objectives. He offers practical, proven techniques for CMMI® and Agile integration, including new ways to extend Agile into system engineering and project management and to optimize performance by focusing on your organization’s unique, culture-related weaknesses.
