Looks like I'm stuck with CMMI training this morning. Whee, fun.
Any readers out there dealt with this monstrosity before? From where I'm sitting (we're starting our CMMI-2 accreditation process), it all looks like an overly complicated mess that does nothing but guarantee the employment of more useless middle-managers. Documentation for every last step, without any actual attention to "results," that I can see.
This whole mess doesn't exactly inspire great bouts of confidence in our ability to produce a usable product, in any event.
Quoth Howard Dean, "Yearrrrrrrgh!"
I'd love to hear what you think. Is this stuff actually useful? Or does it explain exactly why the smallest projects end up costing millions of dollars?
