What about CMM Quest v1.3 and SPICE?

CMM Quest v1.3 contains CMMI-DEV v1.3, which is the current version of the standard CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) (successor of the well known CMM, the american pendant to the european ISO 15504 respectively SPiCE).


CMMI in the continuous representation claims to be SPiCE (ISO 15504) "compatible and compliant". So now, in theory, a CMM Quest v1.3 appraisal would be comparable to a SPICE assessments. But in practice the assignment of the CMMI Process Areas is not that easy, because there sometimes is a slightly different picture of the world behind.


If you want to check out SPiCE from the viewpoint of an assessment tool, then we recommend SPICE 1-2-1.


Should I as a project manager perform an appraisal alone?

No! Never! The great value of performing an appraisal consists not only of a simple judgment of your current situation - it is much more: the confrontation of different opinions and viewpoints in your organization! For example, take your project manager, a software engineer and a tester and perform the appraisal together! You will be astonished how you could have lived up to today with that different opinions in your organization.


What profit does CMM Quest v1.3 yield?

If you are satisfied at 100% with the current situation, then you don't need a CMM Quest v1.3 Appraisal.

But: "If you stop becoming better, you just stopped to be good."


CMM Quest v1.3 helps you and your colleagues to identify your potential as well as the dangerous potholes on your way to success. CMM Quest v1.3 may be used in many organizations to create the right atmosphere of motivation and information to enable changes into the right direction.

Because "Motivation without Information is Illusion".
