When your organization requires a formal benchmarking of its processes, we recommend the SCAMPI Class A method. SCAMPI (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) appraisals are the standard benchmarking tools for formal process area capability and maturity level profiles against the CMMI reference models, providing the basis for comparison across organizations (internal and external) and industries.

A formal SCAMPI appraisal is a verification method that helps you gain insight into your organization’s process area capability and organizational maturity by identifying strengths and weaknesses of current processes relative to the CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV), CMMI for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ), and CMMI for Services (CMMI-SVC).

A SCAMPI appraisal allows you to benchmark your processes for performing, supporting and managing software/systems development while providing a rigorous and detailed comparison of your practices to standards across industries. It helps you identify opportunities for improvement as you strive for world-class performance. Support, enable and showcase your organization’s commitment to process improvement with an ISD-led SCAMPIappraisal.
