Presentations on Process and Quality Frameworks

As part of my work, I often prepare presentations on process and quality models. Below is a list of the presentations I have made available.

Hope you find these useful. Also, let me know what kind of other slide sets you would like to see (related to the various CMMI models).

CMMI Explored – HM’s Fourteen: Essential Beliefs for Effective High Maturity Implementation

Over the past few years many organizations have progressed to implement high maturity (HM) practices of the CMMI®. Many have been appraised and rated at ML4 and ML5. The model and the appraisal method has also evolved over these years and with high maturity practices changing significantly. Some organizations face many problems while implementing high maturity practices, and do not succeed. Others are successful in the implementation and get significant benefits through HM practices and are able to sustain these.

After studying various organizations I have been involved in, I have identified fourteen organizational beliefs I consider key to successful implementation of high maturity practices, and documented these in a presentation.

A truncated version of the presentation is given below. (In case the presentation does not load, use the link http://www.slideshare.net/AlignMentor/cmmi-explored-hms-fourteen-essential-beliefs-for-effective-high-maturity-implementation)

CMMI Explored – Concept of Maturity

While we are all familiar with the concept of maturity, we may not have thought through what it means, whether when applied to a person, or to an organization. In this presentation I discuss “maturity”, starting with what we interpret it as in the context of persons, and moving on to see it when applied to organizations.

Understanding “maturity” is essential to the various CMMI models, as CMMI® models can be used by organizations to assess their maturity (in some aspects of their organization – project delivery, or service delivery, or vendor management, or people management), and to increase their maturity in a planned manner, by incrementally institutionalizing certain practices before embarking on new ones.

The presentation below discusses this topic. (In case the presentation does not load, use the link http://www.slideshare.net/AlignMentor/cmmi-maturityconcept)

CMMI -SVC Explored – Process Area Overview

Though interest in CMMI® Services is growing, most non-IT organizations have not yet started investigating its suitability in their context. The slides below provide an introductory explanation to the process areas of CMMI Services are are intended for non-IT organizations, and give an overview to all 24 process areas. If the organization has no exposure to the CMMI Services model, it will need to be supplemented by explanations of the purpose, benefits and structure of the model.

Organizational Alignment using Strategy Maps and Balanced Scorecard

The use of Balanced Scorecard (BSC)to achieve organizational performance alignment can strengthen the implementation of various CMMI models, and the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) framework (with Strategy Maps) has been in use for many, many years, and many organizations have reported considerable improvement in their performances with the use of BSC.

The concept of BSC has been explained in the slide presentation below. (In case the presentation does not load, use the link http://www.slideshare.net/naik.rajeshnaik/organizational-alignment-using-strategy-maps-and-balanced-scorecard)
