My company is going to get the CMMI Certification. From next week onward thay are going to start the Gap analysis process. I also in the core team. Can any one who has experice in CMMI. Can u please share your experice in implementing CMMI <font color="blue"> </font>
The first exercise would be gap analysis in terms of CMMI Documentation.
Next would be to conduct internal assessment of practices and evidences involving interviewing of practitioners like Project Managers, Config Managers, Developers etc for their role as per the expectation in terms of practice.
After this, invite external assessor for document review which will be followed-up by pre-assessment audit finally culminating in external assessment.
Further to what has been pointed out by Reinier, please note that assessment and implementation are two seperate things. If you already have a set of processes that are ready for assessment, you do not have to do anything in the short term in terms of process implementation. Just let the assessments happen and then based on the gaps identified you may have to come back and address specific processes.
For assessment a short introductor training to those who might be interviewed would help.
If you are on the internal gap assessment team then of course, you would need an in-depth understanding of the process areas to be able to assess maturity in terms of defined processes of the organization and the evidence of implementation by the process users.
