Managing Agile Projects in a CMMI®-Rated Organization

2 Days

Agile software development methods have proven to be a viable approach for achieving software development success in a rapidly changing business environment. You can implement an Agile approach in an organization for which a CMMI® (Capability Maturity Model Integration) rating is vital (either a Maturity Level – ML or Capability Levels – CL). But care must be taken to ensure that your CMMI rating is not jeopardized in the process.

This training course will provide a roadmap for a CMMI-rated organization to embrace an Agile approach as one of its approved software development lifecycles. It addresses the Agile implications of every CMMI Process Area. For each project-focused CMMI Process Area, it addresses the Specific Goals and Specific Practices, identifies legitimate and allowable Alternative Practices where needed, quotes any Agile guidance provided by the SEI (Software Engineering Institute), and provides a clear path to implementing Agile practices in a way that satisfies those Specific Goals.

After completing this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of Agile software development
  • Gain a new understanding of the CMMI's requirements
  • Learn what the SEI has to say about Agile methods
  • Develop CMMI-compliant processes (up to ML5 or CL5) for your Agile projects
  • Use a defined process on Agile projects
  • Quantitatively manage Agile projects
  • Institutionalize Agile processes
