procedures, and team charters.; The appendices include matrices
summarizing the different assessment techniques that have now been
approved by the SEI for use, "pros and cons" associated with this
model, some of the myths that have arisen from the marketing of the

that contains forms and templates that can be downloaded and
customized.The authors distill the knowledge gained in their
combined 60 years of experience in project management, software
engineering, systems engineering, metrics, quality assurance,
configuration management, training, documentation, process
improvement, and team building. Whether you are new to process
improvement or an experienced professional, Interpreting the CMMI:
A Process Improvement Approach saves you time wasted on false
starts, false promises by marketers, and failed deadlines.
