					                             SEI CMMI Quick Assessment Process

This process can be used to quickly assess the SEI CMMI Maturity Level (Staged
Representation) of an Organization. A typical meeting with Project Managers and Their
Managers to answer the Level 2 Questions would take between 2 to 4 hours depending on
the amount of discussion between the Managers in determining the "score" for each
Activity.

The Rating Guide uses a combination of the Common Features translated into a scoring
method that enables the selection of a score of 0 to 10 for each Specific Practice (Activity)
within each Process Area of the CMMI. The Method for scoring is designed to be simple
to understand for Managers trained or not trained in the CMMI. The moderator/scorer
must have knowledge of the CMMI.

The specific practices within the CMMI describe the activities expected to result in
achievement of the specific goals of a process area. The Rating Guide, combined with
the Process Area Specific Practices Questions in each Sheet of this Workbook can be
used to produce a quick "score" showing organizational process maturity.

During a typical meeting with several project managers, there is a lot of discussion on
how to score the first few questions. Once the scoring is understood by the managers
the pace quickens and it usually takes less than 3 hours to complete the Level 2
Questions.


The process is applicable to each level of the CMMI, although its value is greatest in the
CMM Level 2 and Level 3 Project Management KPAs.

Each spreadsheet is filled out with an example of the answers from a group of Managers.
The results spreadsheet shows the summary and gives a visual picture (radar chart) of
the results. The visual provides an overall "gap" view and the each process area sheet
contains a specific roadmap to specific practices that comprise the gap.


A score of 8 for all specific practices in a process area would indicate that the process
area would be likely to pass an assessment. An overall level score 1.8 for the level 2
