Abstract

This report is a description of and aid for implementing the Accelerated Improvement Method (AIM), and is a companion to the Guide for SCAMPI Appraisals: Accelerated Improvement Method (AIM). The intended audience is anyone responsible for implementing CMMI using the Team Software Process (TSP), Six Sigma, and other methodologies—management sponsors and champions, line and support management directly affected by such changes, process group leads and members responsible for implementing such changes, and the team leaders and developers enacting such new methods in concert and combination with their existing practices. This guide is not exhaustive; rather it is a starting point on the road to using CMMI and related technologies to help organizations achieve business objectives using world-class process management techniques.
