CMMI Level 5: How Our Test Organization Got There

Kristen Bevans, IBM - Global Testing Organization

Achieving CMMI® Level 5 Capability as an independent test organization takes a tremendous effort. However, achieving CMMI® Level 5 or a lower level compliance is not out of your reach. Join Kristen Bevans as she describes how the IBM Global Test Organization team successfully completed a formal SEI CMMI® Level 5 SCAMPI Class A appraisal as an independent test organization. The appraisal used the Continuous Representation of the SEI CMMI-SE/SW/IPPD/SS V1.1 Model achieving CMMI® Level 5 in the project planning, project monitoring and control, risk management, and verification process areas. Discover how to develop your CMMI® core team, establish the scope, plan the effort, prepare for an appraisal, and conduct the appraisal with SCAMPI methods. Kristen shares her thoughts on what they would do differently-and what they would do the same-if they had it to do over again.
