Out of the recession, at last?

Number of appraisals per calendar year

Number of appraisals per calendar year

We may not be completely out of the tunnel yet, but things are looking up. After many years of recession and “credit crunch”, it seems that companies are beginning to invest in the future and in their improvement programmes again. This is not an absolute indicator, and the trend might still change, but after a few years of reduction, 2013 was the second year in which the number of reported CMMI appraisals (SCAMPI) increased. While the 2012 increase was small enough to be considered a flat line, 2013 shows an acceleration in the rate of increase.

This is only a small indicator, but it does show that organizations are starting to take things seriously again and realize that it is time to start up their improvement programmes to survive future downturns.

I am optimistic.
