  • Abstract

    In this second webinar about SCAMPI v1.3, the SCAMPI Upgrade Team will be sharing detailed information about the scoping and sampling process designed for the method upgrade. This webinar will cover a broad set of topics including:

    • Determining Organizational Unit - the part of the organization to which appraisal results apply
    • Documenting Sampling Factors - analyzing the sources of diversity in process implementation
    • Choosing an Organizational Scope - the parts of the organization that provide data for appraisal
    • Minimum Coverage Rules - how much of which type of data are required by appraisal teams
    • Performing Trade Studies - using the combined effect of all of the above to scope the event

    The methods described help appraisal sponsors and Lead Appraisers work within constraints for the cost of an appraisal, and make necessary tradeoffs regarding the resource requirements of the appraisal event and the scope of the organization affected. In order to achieve a greater level of efficiency, without sacrificing the credibility results, analysis of the diversity within an organization is used instead of an arbitrary number or percentage sampling basis.

    Procedures to be implemented for SCAMPI V1.3 will be described in detail, and an applied example is used to illustrate the way they work.
