What is CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) and do I need it?

The management of the different processes within a company is a fundamental aspect in order to achieve the objectives. If a company is able to optimize its processes, it will achieve a greater speed of response to any change, improving decision-making and increasing its effectiveness.



Applying the Capability Maturity Model Integration you can qualify the maturity degree of the different processes of a company, and applying the good practices suggested by CMMI you can improve them.


What is Capability Maturity Model Integration


Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a model based on best practices for business process management. With this model, five models of maturity of a company and its processes are established, depending on a series of characteristics.


This rating grades the degrees of maturity from one to five and was initially applied in the software development industry, but given its success it has been applied in companies in other sectors.


What are the advantages of CMMI


By using CMMI a company can learn which specific elements need improvement and how to achieve that improvement. The main advantages of applying this model in a company are

  • improves communication (internal and external) by providing a common framework.

  • provides workers with a clear and global idea, allowing them to focus on their objectives.

  • increases the quality of products and services and reduces delivery times.

  • helps to reduce costs.

  • improves customer satisfaction.

  • It is a model that has many years of experience.
