Book Description

25 Jun 2007 0132333058 978-0132333054 1

Use CMMI to Improve Project Management Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Accountability

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 2 offers powerful, end-to-end tools for improvement throughout your organization. In Project Management Success with CMMI®, James Persse demonstrates exactly how to apply CMMI Level 2 to virtually any project, program, or process. User friendly, concise, and easy to follow, this book helps you implement all seven CMMI Level 2 process areas; customize CMMI for your unique projects and organization; and achieve powerful, quantifiable results.

The author takes a practical approach to the business and operational needs of project management, carefully linking the realities of business and technical projects with CMMI recommendations. Drawing on his unsurpassed CMMI field experience, Persse presents case studies, anecdotes, and examples—all designed to illuminate what works and what doesn't.

Persse introduces the substance and intention of all seven CMMI Level 2 process areas. For each area, he shows how to define goals, implement best practices, understand issues of sizing and scope, and avoid pitfalls and misinterpretations. He is also the first to explain how CMMI can integrate with the tools and skills of the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge, improving the effectiveness of both.

Coverage includes

  • Understanding project management as value management
  • Planning projects and structuring expectations
  • Monitoring and controlling projects
  • Managing requirements, configurations, and supplier agreements
  • Implementing effective measurement and analysis
  • Assuring process and product quality

Project Management Success with CMMI® is an invaluable resource for anyone responsible for managing projects, programs, or processes—including those who are new to CMMI and project management.

The book's companion Web site (www.prenhallprofessional.com/title/0132333058) contains an extensive library of downloadable CMMI project management resources corresponding to each of the seven CMMI process areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful guide to getting CMMI working in your company 20 Feb 2008
By David Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
OK, I have purchased 2 books by James Persse on CMM and CMMI.

The first book I bought was "Implementing the Capability Maturity Model"
The second was this one... "Project Management success with CMMI"

I woud like to compare and contrast these 2 books...

Just to start off, my company had no previous CMM experience, and informal project management.

The first book was quite hard work and heavy going. My company is quite small (<50 staff) and I found getting started on CMM to be quite difficult with this book. I found it almost impossible to translate the concepts in this book into actionable tasks in my company.

In contrast, I've had much more success with the second book, and I believe that I have now got CMMI well implemented at Level 3 based on the information in this book.

The book is quite well written, and has a chapter on each of the process areas (as you might expect). However, much more importantly, it has a list of action points for each of the process areas... Without telling you exactly what to do, it gives a good idea of the concepts and objectives of what you should be looking for. I have found this much more practical.

The book is also well organised so that you can focus on any of the process areas, just by starting at that chapter - There's no need to read the whole book before you can start. This again is crucially important, because in my organisation it's necessary to see some quick results, without having to spend months formalising and documenting processes.

This means you can focus on weak areas in your companies project management process, without having to implement every process area from day 1. By example we have focussed on "Measurement and Analaysis" and achieved some "quick wins" by implementing this process in our current development team. This might not be pure CMMI, but it's more practical for smaller companies which don't have the resource to spend months and months on preparation and formalisation.

In summary then, you can use this book to implement some or all of the CMMMI process areas, and you can do this without getting bogged down with CMMI theory!
