Overview of Course Modules
In “An Introduction to Process” we establish a foundation for the course by looking at processes and process models and how they can be used. In this module we will establish a definition of what is meant by ‘process’, and we’ll see the importance of process management and process improvement.

“An Introduction to the CMMI” provides a high level view of the CMMI models themselves and the benefits that can be achieved using a CMMI-based process improvement programme.  In this module we consider what the CMMI is and, perhaps just as important, what it isn’t! We also look at some the drivers that lead organisations to adopting the CMMI and the types of benefits they might expect to achieve.  Then we turn to the model in a little more detail looking at how it is structured, the models that are available, ways of using the models (the representations), and the concept of capability and maturity levels.

Having looked at the CMMI from a high level we go into a little more detail in “Looking Deeper”.  Here we look closely at the models’ Process Areas by considering first the heart of the CMMI, the Model Foundation.  Next we consider Project and Service Management and introduce the practices in each of the models and see how they work.  Finally we demonstrate how the Process Areas support the achievement of the models aims and how they help ensure quality products and services.

A key element in any improvement programme is to make sure that processes are embedded into everyday operation and we provide the student with some guidance on how this can be achieved in “Achieving Institutionalisation”.  Initially we consider why processes are important and why sometimes they are not used.  Then we look at how the CMMI can help you to ensure that processes become part of the fabric of the way the organisation works, they became ‘how we do things around here’.

One of the key components of the CMMI Product Suite is its appraisal method that helps organisation monitor how they are doing in terms of achieving their improvement objectives.  In “Appraising the Organisation” we give the student some insight into how the appraisal method works and how appraisals are actually conducted.  We also look at the types of evidence that is required to demonstrate process performance, and how the results of an appraisal are presented to the organisation and how they can be used to support on-going improvement.

Finally in "An Improving Organisation" we’ll give you a sense of what it’s like working in an organisation that uses the CMMI for process improvement by examining three key themes of improvement and also the nature of the improving organisation.
