The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is designed to provide benchmark quality ratings relative to Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) models. The role of the SCAMPI Lead Appraiser, who conducts the SCAMPI process, has developed into a distinct profession that encompasses a wide and deep array of competencies. The SCAMPI Lead Appraiser Body of Knowledge (SLA BOK) provides a multi-dimensional view of the competencies and associated skills that are needed to be a successful SCAMPI Lead Appraiser. The SLA BOK is a driver for the SEI Appraisal Program's approach to ensure quality of SCAMPI appraisals. It establishes a comprehensive basis for curriculum, training, certification, observation, and quality assurance programs.
