CMMI® Appraisal Services

An appraisal is an activity that helps you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your organization’s processes and to examine how closely the processes relate to CMMI best practices.

Organizations find value in measuring their capability and performance by conducting an appraisal to identify and prioritize their business improvement efforts and eventually earning a benchmark maturity level or a capability level achievement.

An appraisal enables your organization to:

Plan for an improvement strategy for your organization to prioritize the most important business performance improvement.

Mitigate risks for product and service acquisition, development, delivery, and monitoring.

Demonstrate to customers and business partners the soundness of your processes by having your appraisal results available on the Published Appraisal Results (PARS) site.

Capability and Maturity Levels

The maturity level or capability level of an organization provides a way to characterize its capability and performance.

Capability Levels (0 to 3)

Capability levels apply to an organization’s performance and process improvement achievements in individual practice areas. Within practice areas, the practices are organized into practice groups which provide an evolutionary path to performance improvement.

Maturity Levels (0 to 5)

Maturity levels represent a staged path for an organization’s performance and process improvement efforts based on predefined sets of practice areas. Within each maturity level, the predefined set of PA’s also provide a path to performance improvement.
