Thousands of organizations around the world like GE Aviation, Hewlett Packard, Honeywell, IBM, Infosys, Raytheon, Samsung and the US Air Force have utilized CMMI to build capability in their processes, people, and technology to deliver results.

Recognizing that top employers look for candidates who possess the advanced knowledge, experience, and abilities necessary to drive organizational performance and profitability, the Certified CMMI Professional program gives individuals a way to maintain their competitive edge.

Based on the globally-adopted capability improvement framework, Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), the Certified CMMI Professional pathway provides professionals with guidance for elevating and maintaining skills within the strategically targeted areas deemed most critical to advancing their organization’s key capabilities.

According to the 2015 Salary Survey, “CMMI skills and expertise command a 7.6% salary increase over the last year.” This is an increase for an average salary of $ 124,265. In fact, thousands of job postings around the globe currently request applicants with CMMI credentials. The Certified CMMIProfessional certification program offers instant value for organizations by providing practitioners with hands-on training and scenario-based exams. The certification program advances and validates the ability of practitioners to:

Provide organizational road maps for enduring elevated performance

Coach team members on how to improve performance

Lead ongoing organizational change efforts

Establish a culture of continuous improvement

Ideal candidates for this certification are those who seek to support their organizations by building a culture of continuous improvement, comparing their operations to industry best practices and then identifying and remediating performance gaps. The certification is available to professionals who have a minimum of three years of experience in product or systems development, service delivery, or acquisition of products/services.

“We are pleased to introduce this professional certification for practitioners aiming to streamline operations within their organization and advance its ability to scale,” said Kirk Botula, CEO of CMMI Institute. “Our goal is to help professionals drive higher quality and more reliable delivery of their projects and programs while maintaining their professional edge in today’s competitive market.”

Companies implementing the CMMI will benefit from investing in training and certification for their CMMI teams so that they might better understand the business value of each CMMI requirement and how it affects project quality and performance. “The entire team overcame challenges and created new tools and standards, developing a new state-of-the-art process for software development,” said Carlos Henrique Novaga Alves, general manager for industrial IT solutions at Chemtech (a Siemens Business). “This has provided a unique opportunity for the team to rethink the way our process is executed—from gathering requirements to increasing productivity. The deployment of the CMMI was also a way to leverage process knowledge amongst all collaborators, training the entire team on the new process and tools while creating a new standard of work.”

Professionals looking to take their career to the next level should apply now for the Certified CMMI Professional Program.
