CMMI and Six Sigma represent two of the best-known process improvement initiatives. Both are designed to enhance work quality and thereby produce business advantages for an organization. It's a misconception that the two are in competition and cannot be implemented simultaneously.

CMMI and Six Sigma represent two of the best-known process improvement initiatives. Practitioners originally trained in either CMMI or Six Sigma are now finding that the two initiatives work remarkably well together in the pursuit of their common goal.

M. L. Penn, Jeannine Siviy, Robert W. Stoddard. While the authors concentrate on the interoperability of Six Sigma and CMMI, they also recognize that organizations rarely implement only these two initiatives. This book focuses on a "faster, better, cheaper" implementation of CMMI and Six Sigma. Book topics range from formation of a value proposition to specific implementation tactics. Accordingly, the discussion turns to the emerging realm of "multimodel" process improvement and strategies and tactics that transcend models to help organizations effectively knit together a single unified internal process standard.

CMMI and Six Sigma: Partners in Process Improvement

CMMI and Six Sigma: Partners in Process Improvement. This book assumes some previous knowledge on the CMMI model, the author does a great job at showing real business situations and identifies them with issues related to people, behavior, management and technical that can affect your process improvement effort or initiative. It has a very practical approach, the reader will get good advice on what approaches, techniques, attitudes are really effective.

hybrid CMMI and Six Sigma framework provides not just greater guidance and rigor in certain areas. CMMI and Six Sigma are two of the best initiatives, with many overlaps. A. fundamental difference, however, exists between CMMI and Six Sigma.

"In this book, I have found answers to key questions and misconceptions about the relationship between Six Sigma and the Capability Maturity Model Integration [CMMI]....Among my key takeaways is that the relationship between Six Sigma and CMMI exemplifies one of the principles of S4/IEE: CMMI provides process infrastructure that is needed to support a successful Six Sigma strategy."

"Finally, a book that bridges the software and hardware process tool set. To date, there have been hardware and software engineers who for one reason or another have not communicated their process methods. And so, myths formed that convinced the hardware community that CMMI was only for software and likewise convinced the software community that Six Sigma was only for hardware. It is both refreshing and thought provoking to dispel these myths."

—Jack Ferguson, Manager, SEI Appraisal Program, Software Engineering Institute

CMMI and Six Sigma represent two of the best-known process improvement initiatives. Both are designed to enhance work quality and thereby produce business advantages for an organization. It's a misconception that the two are in competition and cannot be implemented simultaneously. Practitioners originally trained in either CMMI or Six Sigma are now finding that the two initiatives work remarkably well together in the pursuit of their common goal.

CMMI® and Six Sigma: Partners in Process Improvement focuses on the synergistic, rather than competitive, implementation of CMMI and Six Sigma—with synergy translating to "faster, better, cheaper" achievement of mission success. Topics range from formation of the value proposition to specific implementation tactics. The authors illustrate how not taking advantage of what both initiatives have to offer puts an organization at risk of sinking time, energy, and money into "inventing" a solution that already exists. Along the way they debunk a few myths about Six Sigma applications in software.

While the authors concentrate on the interoperability of Six Sigma and CMMI, they also recognize that organizations rarely implement only these two initiatives. Accordingly, the discussion turns to the emerging realm of "multimodel" process improvement and strategies and tactics that transcend models to help organizations effectively knit together a single unified internal process standard.

Whether you work in the defense industry, for a commercial organization, or for a government agency—wherever quality and efficiency matter—you'll find this book to be a valuable resource for bridging process issues across domains and building an improvement strategy that succeeds.

I am certified in LSS and bought this to understand more about CMMI, which I do not know. Also I wondered how the two could work together. What a waste of trees. Case studies add nothing to illuminate a complex topic, and the book offers no concrete examples of how the two work together. I can only assume the subjects of case studies did not want their competitive advantage to be compromised by sharing details with the authors.

I am not sure about the purpose of this book.
I read the book expecting to learn the synergy and complementary effect of CMMI and Six Sigma, but.............
