CMMI is a quality framework for process improvement in organizations involved with Software Development, Software Maintenance or Services or Acquisitions. Using CMMI by the process implementers in the organization infuse quality in to the product or services delivered by the organization. These qualities are so obvious that you can identify that the organization is following a quality framework (and it can be CMMI) by analysing some of the following traits:
- Use of standardised techniques for doing common activities – planning, estimation, communication, meetings
- Use of standardised templates for most of the activities like Minutes of Meeting, Estimations, Plans and other artefacts
- On time delivery most of the time
- Within budget projects
- Lesser number of defects
- Transparency during project progress
These practices can also be followed by organizations not following or assessed for a particular standard or model like CMMI so following these activities does not ensure that organization is definitely having a particular standard or model. Quality is in the mind of implementers and it does not cost much to have quality in your services and products, it just requires will power.
