Imagine One Technology & Management, Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Software Development Group has been appraised at Maturity Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)®. This appraisal focused on the Organizational Set of Standard Processes (OSSP), Process Improvement Program (PIP), Training Program, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Intelligent Information Exploitation Engine (I2E2) project, SBIR Intelligent Decision Making Technology Development (IDMTD) project, and the project to remodel the Shirlington office.
Under the guidance of Leigh Riley (Acme Process Group, CMMI Institute Certified Lead Appraiser), the appraisal team reviewed the artifacts from the PIP, Training Program, and projects mentioned above to determine if they met the CMMI Level 3 development requirements for organizational, project management, and technical process areas. Imagine One reached Maturity Level 3 for the first time in December 2011. The CMMI Institute requires organizations to maintain their appraisals every three years to ensure process improvement is ongoing. The appraisal shows that the PIP continues to improve the OSSP for future projects. The next appraisal will take place in 2017.
CMMI® is a capability improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for Maturity Level 3, is established and improved over time.
Special thank you to all the members involved with helping with the project; it was a large effort and outstanding accomplishment.
