Full of pride we got the certification for the first time CMMI level 5 in Services and the ratification of level 5 in Development, being one of only three companies in Colombia to have these certifications at the highest level. This is one more achievement of the great team of work of our company that works daily to make grow SoftManagement and the IT Sector in Colombia and all those who support Software and Technological Development companies.
At maturity level 5 (also called optimization), our organization has achieved all the goalsof in the process and the areas assigned to maturity levels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and the generic objectives assigned to the maturity levels 2 and 3.
This level focuses on continuous improvement of the performance of the processes through the increases and innovative technological improvements. The quantitative objectives of process improvement for the organization are established and reviewed continuously in order to reflect the objective business changes, and are used as criteria for the management of process improvement.
The effects of the improvements implemented in the processes are measured and evaluated in relation to the quantitative objectives of process improvement. Both the defined processes and the set of standard processes of the organization are objectives for the considerable improvement activities.
Optimization of agile and innovative processes, depends on the participation of a trained staff and aligned with the values and business objectives of the organization. The ability of the organization to respond quickly to changes and opportunities is improved by finding ways to share and encourage learning. Improving processes is inherently a role that everyone has to play, which translates into a cycle of continuous improvement.
A fundamental difference between maturity level 4 and maturity level 5 is the type of process variation. At maturity level 4, processes are responsible for special causes of process variation and provide statistics to predict the results. Although the processes can produce predictable results, the results may not be sufficient to achieve the established objectives. At maturity level 5, processes are responsible for common causes of process variation and process change (that is, changing the process performance environment) to improve performance (while maintaining statistics for foresee) to achieve the quantitative objectives of process improvement.
