Using the Software CMM with Judgment: Small Projects & Small Organizations
Back to C-SPIN Homepage
In this presentation, Mark Paulk will discuss some of the common problems with interpreting the Software CMM for the small project/organization. What does "small" mean? In terms of people? Time? Size of project? Criticality of project? What are the CMM "requirements"? Are there key process areas or goals that should not be applied to small projects/organizations? What are the drivers and motivations that cause abuse of the CMM? The conclusion of this presentation is that the issues associated with interpreting the Software CMM for the small project organization may be different in degree, but they are not different in kind, from those for any organization interested in improving its software processes. Using the Software CMM effectively and correctly requires professional judgment and an understanding of how the CMM is structured to be used for different purposes.
