CMMI Consulting solutions are available in diverse forms and packages and are performed or delivered at various levels in the client organization. CMMI Consulting for the top management takes a different form compared to CMMI Consulting for middle and junior management. The CMMI Consulting at the top management level covers CEO, CTO, COO, CFO and Senior Vice Presidents and Vice Presidents. In this kind of CMMI Consulting, the top management is briefed mainly on how the top management can leverage the capabilities of CMMI best practices to align and achieve their business objectives. The significant point that is brought in this type of consulting is that the CMMI Implementation Program in the organization should not be taken as an exercise in isolation for the sake of certification but it should be completely and fully integrated with the business and operational activities of the organization. For example, it may be a good idea to integrate the monthly, quarterly or annual business and operational review with SEPG reviews and Management reviews done for CMMI or ISO 9001 initiative. The CMMI Consulting at the top Management focuses on bringing out the potent capabilities of CMMI Process Model in institutionalizing the best practices which in any case is the desire of any genuine and serious top Management. Comparatively, CMMI Consulting at the middle and junior management is more of prescriptive nature. At this level of CMMI Consulting, the idea is to give the real technical solutions to the best practices of the CMMI Model. For example, at this level of CMMI Consulting, the organization should discuss the real-life solutions available in terms of tools, automation capabilities and operational methods. The CMMI Consulting at the middle and junior management level focuses on defining the processes, templates and checklists by interaction at the stakeholder level. It works for integration of various tools currently being used in the organization their integration with the processes being defined. It also sets up the agenda for the automation of various processes and how the efficiencies can be introduced and mistake-proofing can be done at the level of templates. This aspect of CMMI Consulting evaluates the use of various life-cycle methodologies, for example, agile or water-fall or both, sets up operating criteria for their use in the organization. It guides the processes in a direction that they become robust and also flexible in use and deliver the desired results in form of deliverables. The ultimate objective at this level is to ensure that the processes deliver with respect to quality, quantity and turn-around time (cycle time) and this is what the CMMI Consulting at middle and junior management should catalyze and enable the client organization to achieve.
