Harmonious Process Improvement

Introduction to CMMI Training v1.3


Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) consists of best practices that address the development and maintenance of products and services covering the product life cycle from conception, development, through delivery and maintenance.

Training for CMMI-Dev and CMMI-Services can be provided.

The training introduces systems and software engineering managers and practitioners, appraisal team members, and engineering process group (e.g., SEPG, EPG) members to CMMI fundamental concepts.

The training is combined for both Stage and Continuous Representation, using the official slides from the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).

The intensive course will cover all process areas as well as additional topics by the lead appraiser such as implementation ideas and issues; this will provide the students a good start in implementing process improvements in their Organizations.

The course will also cover process areas and implementation topics at maturity levels 4 and 5.

Attendees¨ particulars will be submitted to the Software Engineering Institute in order for the attendees to participate as appraisal team members in future appraisals.  (Attendees are also required to attend the SCAMPI (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) Class A training before participating in an appraisal.)


The 3-day course is an official training for CMMI and is a pre-requisite for becoming an Appraisal Team Member (ATM), continuing education with the Intermediate Concepts of CMMI, becoming a lead appraiser or a CMMI instructor.  The course can be extended to a 4-day course covering more details in how to implement the process areas.  This course fulfills a prerequisite requirement for any course requiring an official SEI Introductory CMMI course.
