Practices of High Maturity Organizations
Over the past several years, the Software Engineering Institute has participated in several workshops and site visits with maturity level 4 and 5 software organizations. Mark Paulk discusses the lessons learned from these interactions with high maturity organizations and examines the results of a survey taken to informally test the anecdotal observations about high maturity practices. Explore specific areas of interest, including statistical process, quality control, and product lines/families. A variety of engineering and management practices, including issues outside the scope of the Capability Maturity Model for Software, will be discussed.
