Proper interpretation and understanding of a model is a vital part in any new model implementation in an organisation. During the course of action, we have a tendency to over simplify things and thus ignore certain key aspects. And in certain cases there happen some misconceptions too. This article tries to clarify such ignored aspects and the next article will talk more on misconceptions in CMMI implementation. There might be some overlapping between these two articles.
The below aspects are easily skipped, not because they are too tough to implement but because, they are too simple to implement.
- GPs – Ignored
- The Generic Practices (GP’s) represent the most important part of the model. Poor implementation of GPs will always lead to process failure. Usually we will try to map all specific Practices (SPs) of each PA and simply ignore GPs. In some cases GPs will be mapped automatically through SP implementation itself, but not in all cases. GPs are the most beautiful aspect of the CMMI model as it talks about institutionalising the process
- CM – Oversimplification
- The Process Area (PA), Configuration Management (CM) appears clearly
