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

Even Scott Adams (Dilbert) “gets it”!


OK people… if your approach to CMMI sounds like this Dilbert cartoon, maybe it’s time to face reality.  You can’t do it without proper training (whether in the form of traditional courses, or the knowledge-transfer mechanisms of mentoring, coaching, etc.)

In other words, if you’re trying to use CMMI and you’re not getting smart about what it is, Dilbert just called you out as a moron.


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.
