CMMI®

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® is a globally-recognized set of best practices that enable organizations to improve performance, key capabilities, and critical business processes.

How capable is your organization?

All organizations have capabilities. What many don't have is a process by which they can measure their different capabilities against best practices and pinpoint which ones are driving higher performance.

  • 50%

    don’t have standard processes, process assets, and job aids.

  • 42%

    have no established planning process.

  • 41%

    aren’t encouraging employees to build organizational capabilities.

  • 33%

    cite difficulties in monitoring plans and making adjustments when needed.

  • 54%

    do not measure what matters.

Why Build Capability?

Knowing your organization’s key capabilities creates new value.

When an organization’s distinctive capabilities are clearly defined, everything and everyone within the organization begins to positively reinforce each other. The business takes on new life as people know and focus on putting standard processes in place to strengthen their key capabilities.

Organizations that know their capabilities see results:

  • Increased customer satisfaction.
  • Increased probability of capturing new and repeat business.
  • Increased profit through improved quality and less rework.
  • Increased productivity.
  • Decreased risks.
