A starting point for a discussion on marrying Agile methods and CMMI.

Writer gets ink…

I got some ink in today’s BBJ.  bbj_logo

Thanks to the DoD’s Base Realignment and Closure initiative, Maryland is getting a lot of new Federal jobs and opportunities.  Naturally, I wanted companies looking to capitalize on this to know that if they want to play in the "development" space, that they’d need to know about CMMI.  Readers of this space may be surprised to learn that even in Federal-funding-rich Maryland, not everyone developing technical products (including software) knows that CMMI exists, let alone knows what to do about it.

Originally, I submitted an article about the importance of knowing about CMMI for any company looking to enter this market space.  The folks at the BBJ couldn’t wrap their heads around it and asked for something more basic.  This is the result.

At least they published my gmail account as shown.  That way some savvy readers will see the hint.

Here’s a print-out of the full article.


My professional passion is to build high performance organizations out of companies motivated to be lean, agile, and achieve world-class results. My best clients are companies who have the courage, leadership, insight, foresight and discipline to be the best places to work, the best value to their customers and the best performing for their shareholders. I take a tough love approach and, frankly, have little patience for executives who *want* these things but expect to achieve them without putting in any effort or making any changes.
