About the Presentation

The CMMI-DEV* model is a collection of practices aimed at organizations that develop products, systems and IT solutions. The model is organized into five levels, each level defining more advanced practices to improve schedule, budget, risk management and quality performance. The levels provide a road map for sustained incremental improvement. Example development organizations that use CMMI-DEV are:

  • Software application and embedded systems
  • IT solutions
  • Hardware (electrical, mechanical, optical, electronic)
  • Systems engineering (large software and hardware systems)

The Project Management Body of Knowledge defines an extensive set of project management practices that can be applied to any type of project. The Project Management Institute (PMI) provides classes and examinations on PMBOK content.

This session compares and contrasts CMMI and PMBOK and shows how implementing one can significantly implement the other. The presentation summarizes both frameworks and shows in detail how they compare at a practice level.

The audience will understand how to either focus on PMI first, and then know how to implement the project management sections of CMMI, or implement CMMI and better understand the practices of PMBOK.
