ALEXANDRIA, VA – INNOVATE! INC. (www.innovateteam.com), a premier Cloud and GIS Platform Integration Services Company, is pleased to announce it has been appraised at CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® Level 3 for Services. An appraisal team led by Multi-Dimensional Maturity (MDM) performed a CMMI Institute Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) for Innovate. Demonstrating appraisal readiness at the highest level in the company’s history, this successful CMMI® Maturity Level 3 appraisal is reflective of Innovate!’s commitment to continuous process improvement and mature process implementation.
An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates Innovate! is performing at a “defined” level. Our organization’s processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. Our set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.
Innovate Management’s demonstrated commitment to business and technical excellence and CMMI Maturity Level 3 helped to ensure this success. Auditor Dr. Richard Waina commented, “All levels of the organization are involved in and focused on continuous improvement. Every individual’s commitment to process discipline and improvement was quite evident.”
“The CMMI® Services Level 3 rating is a distinction that clearly demonstrates to our customers that we are fully committed to process improvements that assure the delivery of superior product, system and service solutions. This maturity level is an important competitive differentiator on many government programs and is consistent with Innovate!’s culture of continuous improvement and commitment to delivery excellence,” Phill Thomas, Innovate’s CEO commented.
This widely recognized model, in use for ten years, has been the basis of over 21,000 appraisals in 100+ countries on all seven continents. Companies and organizations using this model have achieved performance excellence as measured by increased productivity, improved quality, better control of projects, reduced cycle time and decreased costs through using the CMMI to guide process improvement. Organizations typically report productivity improvements of 10-50% and a return on investment of 4:1 (cost savings realized vs. process improvement dollars invested).
The SCAMPI was conducted August 31-September 4, 2020 in accordance with the model described in the CMMI Institute’s publication Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI-SVC) for Services, version 1.3. The appraisal was based on the previously agreed to criterion of thoroughly examining 100% of the specific and generic goals and practices for Maturity Level 2 and 3 Process Areas. The SCAMPI team consisted of four trained team members in accordance with the CMMI Institute requirements for conducting a Class A SCAMPI. The members of the team were Dr. Richard Waina (MDM Certified Lead Appraiser), Tom Perkowitz and Bobby Jo Britt of Innovate and Judy Rexin and Nino Guidry of Integration Technologies Group.
“Innovate’s earning CMMI 3 in such a short period of time is due to all the processes and systems that our team had already been using. It is a validation of the quality of work that is being done daily to deliver Innovate services to our valued clients,” noted Tom Perkowitz, Innovate Quality Manager.
