CMMI PIID Video Training

 The following training session compares the traditional PIID preparation process with a new, streamlined PIID preparation using CMMI Live. 

By watching this video you will learn how to:

•Automatically create your PIID as artifacts are created.
•Replace after-the-fact C and B appraisals with ongoing review/coaching.
•Rely more on experience of frontline employees and less on OPG.
•Minimize risks of not achieving a Maturity Level because of issues with artifacts.
•Use the PIID to fuel continuous improvement.
•Replace spreadsheets with online collaboration.
•Replace meetings and email with asynchronous communication.
•Give yourself a marketing advantage. (Continuous Process Monitoring)


The training occurs in two parts:

•Traditional PIID Preparation
•PIID 2.0 – Automated PIID Preparation (Starts at the 29 minute mark)

      What I missed was clarity on who and when will assign the tasks in PIID. I see it as follows:
      If an organization works with projects, this could typically be a task for the PM on project initiation. When services are being delivered, the SM should be held responsible.
      I see then at organization scope the OPG responsible for the availability (and improvement suggestion reviews) of the PIID organization wide.

        The PIID is built in CMMI Live, so you will be assigning tasks for a project not for a PIID. And as people complete their tasks, and upload or link the appropriate artifacts, the PIID gets completed automatically.

        We have created four project templates that cover all the CMMI practices – project management, engineering, support, and process management. whoever is responsible for these areas will assign the task to people to complete it.

        And by completing the task, they are following the organization’s process, completing the PIID, and offering improvement suggestions as applicable.

        Please let me know if you have other questions.
