In the last few months, the traction for the services constellation of CMMI® has increased significantly. The discouraging news is that the model has not yet caught the fancy of non-IT organizations. Most of the organizations investigating and adopting the model have been those already familiar with the DEV version (they not only know the models, but also seem to know the history of the models :-)).
So, explaining the Process Areas is not very difficult to the staff of IT organizations – all one has to do is focus on the delta (services specific PAs, and how some of the common PAs play out in a services scenario).
However, to help explain the PAs to non-IT organizations in a simplified manner, I have created a set of slides. These slides focus on providing a high level overview to all the 24 PAs. Other slides may be required to explain the purpose, benefits and structure of the model, and further set of slides may be required to explain the detailed practices of each PA.
A truncated version of the presentation is given below.
