Organizations that attempt to scale agile need significant structural changes and support. CMMI helps organizations reap the benefits of agile and scale its adoption across teams, divisions, and the global enterprise. CMMI Institute has released “A Guide to Scrum and CMMI: Improving Agile Performance with CMMI” to help users adopt and implement CMMI to improve performance in agile organizations.
In 2015, CMMI Institute estimated that over 70% of CMMI appraised organizations reported using agile. Agile organizations struggling with issues of performance are increasingly turning to the CMMI for proven results. The CMMI Institute developed “A Guide to Scrum and CMMI: Improving Agile Performance with CMMI” as a roadmap to successfully adopt and implement CMMI and agile together. The CMMI provides a framework or map of “what” a high-performance organization must do. Agile provides particular approaches that prescribe “how” to do it. As methods and techniques are adapted and evolve, the CMMI provides the foundation on which organizations can iterate or tailor their techniques in a way that is appropriate to the dynamics of their business environment. The discipline, organizational learning, and consistency provided by the adoption of CMMI supports organizations in making their agile implementation even stronger and more effective.
