Strategic Plan Checklist

1. Determine the appropriate scope -- organization and model

2. Review each CMMI practice, within the projects and the organizational

groups, to identify and document any interpretation issues

3. Select a Lead Appraiser, based on how they interpret those same issues

• Do they agree on scope?

• Which projects will need to be assessed?

• Are any process areas not applicable, given your scope of work? How will that

be worded in the final “certification”?

4. Document your agreement on how the issues will be handled

• What evidence is sufficient to satisfy the practice?

5. Have the projects and organizational groups start putting together the

evidence notebooks immediately

6. Track progress towards filling the gaps – have the evidence reviewed by

a qualified appraiser (preferably the chosen Lead)

7. 1-2 months before the appraisal, do a final check

8. Ensure the appraisal team has sufficient experience
