Selection of CMMI Consultant is a very important aspect of the whole CMMI Implementation initiative and can lead to favorable or unfavorable results at the end i.e. CMMI SCAMPI A Assessment.
There can be various sources to collect information about CMMI Consultant before hiring them and different checks can be performed to be sure about the capabilities of CMMI Consultant.
Before you hire a CMMI Consultant you should identify the Criteria to select and work with a CMMI Consultant. Criteria to hire a CMMI Consultant can include Communication, Confidence of the Consultant, Subject Matter Expertise, and Assurance from the Consultant for the Work.
You should also evaluate the Methodology used by CMMI Consultant, time frame suggested by him for the work and the cost involved with the work. After having sound understanding on these parameters you should move further.
Generally organizations select or hire a CMMI Consultant based on word of mouth from fellow organizations. Before hiring you can check their complete CMMI Services Profile at the SEI Partners (now CMMI Institute) website at – http://partners.clearmodel.com/find-partner-organization/. For example DQS India Profile at SEI website is located at – http://partners.clearmodel.com/partner/dqs-certification-india-private-limited/
You should ask CMMI Consultant for clients for reference check and CMMI Consultant will not be reluctant in providing similar clients references to you. And if CMMI Consultant is reluctant to provide such references it would be better for you to avoid them.
Once you have references you can confirm with them about satisfaction level of the services received from the same. After your satisfaction with the references, you can initiate working with the consultant.
