Cmmi(r) for Outsourcing book .

Cmmi(r) for Outsourcing book. This book is a practical introduction to the initial CMMI-ACQ and its use in all phases of technology acquisition. Developed under the leadership of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and General Motors (GM), the CMMI-ACQ combines CMMI's successful process discipline with techniques proven to work in GM's own extensive outsourcing program.

by Susan Kushner, John W. Hofmann. CMMI for Outsourcing® will be valuable to any organization that wants to achieve better results from technology acquisition. It will be especially helpful to organizations already involved with CMMI-related process improvement and to companies that partner with them.

P style MARGIN: 0px CMMI® for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ) describes best practices for the successful acquisition of products and services. Providing a practical framework for improving acquisition processes. Mike Phillips is the program manager for CMMI at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a position created to lead the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) product suite evolution. He has led the team, which spans government, industry, and the SEI, through three significant upgrades to the original version of the integrated model, which now covers engineering, acquisition, and services.

Program System and Software Engineering (SSE). The training materials follow the Software Engineering Education Knowledge (SEEK) knowledge insights, described in Software Engineering paper book. It is presupposed that all individuals accepted as Master Program students completed corresponding full-time Bachelor degree training programs and were selected (based on the portfolio tenders, or other core performance indices) to continue their MS education in the Program, therefore the students should be familiar with the basics of the following training courses: a) Object-oriented analysis and programming b) The software.

Series: SEI Series in Software Engineering. CMMI for Outsourcing will be valuable to any organization that wants to achieve better results from technology acquisition.

"By following the guidance contained in [the CMMI-ACQ and this book], you'll be able to build an organic acquisition capability that will position your organization to successfully set the scope of engagements with suppliers, keep suppliers and in-house users focused on a common picture of success, and deliver capabilities that will position your organization as a leader in your market or mission for years to come." --From the Foreword by Brian GallagherDirector, Acquisition Program, Software Engineering Institute

Increasingly, both commercial and government organizations are acquiring key software, systems, and IT functions instead of building them. Yet all too often, the technology solutions they purchase cannot be sustained successfully. Now there is a comprehensive solution: the CMMI for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ) model, which connects the widely adopted CMMI 1.2 framework with established industry best practices for acquisition and outsourcing.

This book is a practical introduction to the initial CMMI-ACQ and its use in all phases of technology acquisition. Developed under the leadership of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and General Motors (GM), the CMMI-ACQ combines CMMI's successful process discipline with techniques proven to work in GM's own extensive outsourcing program. Reflecting the unique insights of key players in the development and early implementation of the CMMI-ACQ, the book covers the entire acquisition project lifecycle, presenting real-world stories as they might occur in your own organizations, insider experiences, tips, tricks, and pitfalls to avoid.

The topics discussed here include: determining when outsourcing is and is not appropriate; developing acquisition strategies and aligning organizational structure with them; capturing accurate requirements; specifying realistic design constraints; writing effective RFPs; selecting, managing, and collaborating with suppliers; negotiating contracts; managing risk; and "measuring for success."

CMMI for Outsourcing® will be valuable to any organization that wants to achieve better results from technology acquisition. It will be especially helpful to organizations already involved with CMMI-related process improvement and to companies that partner with them.

CMMI is a heavyweight process for software development, as well you should know, if you are at all considering this book. The twist here, compared to earlier books that focus exclusively on CMMI, is what happens if you also outsource. So now at the corporate level, there are two parties, your company and a supplier.

The gist of the book involves a few, crucial aspects. One is to treat the supplier more as a partner. At some level, perhaps as akin to a subsidiary of your company, co-equal to the other divisions or groups within the company. Another is to have a very clear idea of what metrics you need. And you must have metrics, to have any realistic chance of monitoring progress, both inhouse and outsourced.

Yet another aspect is to standardise as completely as possible the various work processes. Especially where these cross the boundary between your company and the supplier.

You might find that if your company has already implemented some internal CMMI processes, that the transition to involving an outsourcer is not so drastic. Unless that supplier has had no experience in CMMI. It seems that the difference between this book and its predecessors is more in emphasis, rather than in a qualitatively new approach.

This book has been assigned reading for a sourcing and acquisition class at Colorado Technical University Online (ctuonline.edu). While there is a lot of valuable information pertaining to Carnegie Mellon's CMMI-ACQ model the reading appears to be scattered and disorganized as a result of the selected format, much of which is this sort of formal interview and chat format. It makes for broken thoughts and a difficult read in my humble opinion.

The book really starts on page 335 which is the 80-page appendix. If you are willing to purchase the book for 80 good pages then it would be a worthwhile investment. However, if a 400+ page book needs to represent a more authoritative reference then there might better choices available.
