Balance process documentation and fast performance.
Some customers require CMMI, and those organizations have tended towards heavy process documentation with audits that confirm the entire organization is complying with CMMI. If considering how far to go for CMMI, such as level 2, 3, 4, or 5, consider how Lean-Agile helps get to the optimization level. Our Lean-Agile uses the data from the visual board and the team’s experience over the last iteration to reflect on what worked and what needed improvement. The team has data on the visual Kanban board to help aid their decision making. This starts to lean towards levels 4-5 of CMMI.
