With so much "alphabet soup" in project management today, it can be difficult to sort out the different process models like Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) or the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).  What benefits do these models bring to state agencies that are either interested in earning certifications for themselves or who have to evaluate vendors touting various credentials?

This webinar unravels the mysteries of the CMMI model. Our presenter reviewed how CMMI fits with project management principles and Agile life-cycle development. Participants developed an understanding of the different CMMI levels and the steps that organizations must take to achieve each level of certification. The speaker provided CMMI tools and processes that can be used even by agencies that choose not to pursue the CMMI credential. 

Our presenter: Audra Stewart, CSM, Senior Technical Specialist and Quality and Process Improvement Manager for ICF International. Ms. Stewart has over 14 years of expertise in process improvement in the areas of software development, organizational change, process optimization, risk management, and project management.
