Two posts on Agile and CMMI

September 24, 2014

Two different posts recently on the combination of Agile and CMMI:

1. Can you use CMMI and Agile together efficiently? See http://qpit.net/blog/agile-and-process.html for my take on how they complete each other (with evidence of success)
Agile-CMMI

2. Can you use Agile principles for Process improvement? See http://www.slideshare.net/PeterLeeson/agile-for-process-improvement for the slides on a recent presentation on this topic.

Enjoy.

Performance Management 101

March 28, 2014

I have recently started a series of short articles on the generic topic of “Getting Started 101” which talks about the basic principles which need to be in place when starting a programme to improve your organizational productivity, performance or quality. These are posted on my blog at www.qpit.net.

Two articles have been published so far. The first article is about writing a policy that will encourage change and the right attitude and not just publishing requirements to follow standard practices. It can be found at http://qpit.net/blog/getting-started-101-the-policy.html. The second article discusses selecting an effective approach to your project management, and is comparing the approaches recommended by the theories of lean management, agile software development and CMMI-style process based activities; this article is found at http://qpit.net/blog/getting-started-101-process-agile-or-lean.html

Another article should be coming soon on the topic of measuring quality and performance.
