Abstract

Organizations are increasingly looking for guidance on what it takes to implement Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) high maturity practices and how to sustain their momentum for improvement. As high maturity organizations work to improve their use of measurement and analysis, they often look to examples of successful implementations for guidance. In response to the need for clarification and guidance on implementing measurement and analysis in the context of high maturity processes, members of the SEI's Software Engineering Measurement and Analysis (SEMA) Initiative organized a workshop at the 2008 SEPG North America conference to bring leaders in the field together at a forum on the topic. Other workshops will be held as part of an ongoing series to allow high maturity organizations to share best practices and case studies
