FREE May Webinar: CMMI + Agile: Driving Radical Change
Friday, May 6, 2011 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
CMMI + Agile: Driving Radical Change
Why do we resist change? Why is "process" a dirty word in software development? Why can't you just leave me alone so I can write software?
What is included?
With their high-failure rates, high cost, and over-reliance on mountains of documentation, over complicated and ill-deployed processes have soured the industry on processes based on models such as CMMI, ITIL, ISO, and SPICE. But the success or failure of the systems development process doesn't lie in these source models, but in the interpretation and deployment of processes based on those models, and this distinction can make the difference between a vibrant and innovative company and one that is struggling for survival.
The application of agile methods to the development of software and systems has revolutionized the industry, but consistency, predictability, and repeatability still have not been realized by most engineering and IT organizations. The CMMI provides an excellent model for the integration of agility with disciplined structure that will address these business needs, but the method used to develop such an approach has never materialized.
Until now. Learn more at CMMI + Agile: Driving Radical Change
