CMMI TRAINING OPTIONS

Taught by SEI-certified CMMI instructors, this course describes the fundamentals of model-based process improvement. It illustrates the benefits of process improvement introduced in CMMI model content. Students completing the course will understand the basic structure of the CMMI, best practices and pitfalls in applying the CMMI, the process areas that make up the CMMI, capability and maturity levels, and CMMI vocabulary.

Audience

  • Product developers and process implementers

  • Anyone interested in learning about CMMI

Prerequisites
There are no prerequisites for this course.

Course Duration
Three (3) days

Pricing

  • Public courses are taught at BTI's facility in Columbia, Maryland and are priced on a fixed per-student cost. Public courses are offered on a schedule determined by BTI.

  • On-site courses are taught at either BTI's or the customer's facility as selected by the customer. On-site courses are taught on a schedule determined by the customer, within instructor availability. On-site courses are priced at a fixed price per course with a small additional charge per student. This additional charge is set at BTI's cost for student materials and the mandatory SEI royalty. Public courses are more flexible than public courses and are more economical for four or more students.

Course Topics

  • Introduction

  • Model-based process improvement

  • Overview of CMMI components: Process Areas, Goals, Specific and Generic Practices, Subpractices

  • Institutionalization

  • * Appraisal planning and understanding appraisal results *

  • * Comparisons between CMMI, ISO 9001:2000, and Six Sigma *

  • Process areas of CMMI models: Management Process Areas, Engineering Process Areas, Support Process Areas, and Process Improvement Process Areas

  • Structure of the continuous and staged representations

  • ** Advanced topics in statistical process control **

  • Next steps

* This is additional material not covered in the standard SEI Introduction to CMMI course.
** This is additional material not covered in the standard SEI Introduction to CMMI course. BTI's Applying Six Sigma to Software Engineering training course also covers this topic.

Course Work
Reading homework is required the first and second evenings of the course.

Course Material
On the first day of the course, participants will receive CMMI 2nd Edition: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement and a course notebook with copies of the course slides. Students retain all materials after class completion.

This course trains people in how to prepare for a SCAMPI A and B appraisal. The course provides practical hands-on exercises to use an organization's artifacts to present the case of process implementation. This course helps the organization to prepare for a more efficient and accurate appraisal by presenting material to the appraisal team in a manner that is complete, clear, and convincing.

Audience Personnel from organizations undergoing an appraisal who need to put together the material to be appraised.

Prerequisites
None, although Introduction to CMMI is helpful.

Course Duration
One (1) day

Course Topics

  • Introduction

  • CMMI overview

  • Objective verifiable evidence

  • Direct, Indirect, and Affirmation Artifacts

  • Coverage

  • Appraisal storyboarding

  • Weakness and strength construction

  • Goal satisfaction

  • Ratings

Course Work
None.

Course Material
On the first day of the course, participants will receive a copy of the Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) Method and well as a copy of the course slides

This course introduces the Capability Maturity Model Integration for Development (CMMI-DEV v1.3) to executives, managers, and other personnel who may work in a CMMI-compliant environment but are not themselves responsible for process planning, design, or improvement.

Audience
Executives, managers and other personnel interested in learning about CMMI.

Prerequisites
There are no prerequisites for this course.

Course Duration
Four (4) Hours

Course Topics

  • Structure of the CMMI Model
  • Continuous and Staged Representations
  • CMMI process areas and process area categories
  • Overview of specific and generic practices
  • Motivation for the CMMI
  • SCAMPI appraisal process

Course Work
None.

Course Materials
On the first day of the course, participants will receive a CMMI wall chart covering all CMMI process areas and a course notebook with copies of the course slides. Students retain all materials after class completion.

Seminars are taught at an advanced level equivalent to the SEI's CMMI Intermediate course. (Students enrolling in a seminar must have previously completed the Introduction to CMMI-DEV v1.3 course.)

Audience Personnel interested in learning more extensive information about specific process areas.

Prerequisite
Participants must have completed the Introduction to CMMI-DEV v1.3 course.

Course Duration
Four (4) hours per CMMI process area

Course Topics

  • Structure of the process area

  • Features of the process area at different capability/maturity levels

  • Process area interdependencies

  • Typical work products

  • Sub-practices

  • Process area appraisal considerations

  • Practical application of the process area

Course Work
This is an interactive course comprising of lecture and exercises.

Course Materials
On the first day of the course, participants will receive a course notebook with copies of the course materials. The notebook contains detailed notes on the process area and exercises designed to increase the students' proficiency with interpreting the CMMI. Students retain all materials after class completion.
