Duration: 1 hour + Q&A Credits: 1 PDU Category C – Free PDU
Presented by: Software Engineering Institute Carnegie Mellon

Is your development organization searching for a way to:implement development practices leading to consistent, cost effective performance while demonstrating rapid benefits and payback?

Many are.

This one-hour webinar introduces a new SEI process improvement technology, the CMMI Accelerated Improvement Method (AIM). AIM implementations provide quantifiable performance improvements leading to measureable business value and high ROI.AIM speeds CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) adoption through the use of a proven operational processes (TSP) and advanced measurement and analysis techniques (Six Sigma measurement strategies).

Designed as an introduction, this webinar presents a case study of an AIM implementation, including its activities, timeframe, and results. Following the webinar, those wishing to learn more about how AIM works will be invited to participate in a series of future online events that will delve into the AIM method and explore the practical realities of making meaningful and measurable performance improvements.

AIM users experience:

  • Reduced time to implement—about half that of IDEAL-based improvement
  • Measurable improvement, right from the first project—common results have included a 30% improvement in productivity and 80% fewer delivered defects
  • Comprehensive strategy—builds buy-in from the senior manager, to the team, to the practitioner

The SEI has been a world leader in in defining software engineering and improving systems development capabilities for more than 25 years. Under the direction of Watts Humphrey, SEI championed a software process revolution, resulting in the formation of the CMMI framework, the TSP, and other technologies.

If you are a Technical Professional, Team Lead, Software Architect or developer of software; this is a session not to be missed!
