agileCMMI

agileCMMI Methodology

agileCMMI is an incremental and iterative method that leads you directly down the path to greatness. Our branded approach allows organizations to build things, pilot them, learn as they go, get feedback, determine what changes to make, and to make them. Because agileCMMI calls for performing incremental actions and building upon everything that has come before, work is done in short iterations. Your organization goes through an incremental and iterative process over time, until you have a complete, high performing engineering process.

agileCMMI is available for licensing or as a package of services delivered by our world-class consultants.
