Demystifying High Maturity – The Statistical Way

Need for Statistical Process Control

To help the organizations in understanding and implementing High Maturity in the correct and effective way, QAI introduces the “Demystifying High Maturity – The Statistical Way”. This course is a one of its kind to help the organizations understand the nuances of implementing High Maturity. The course goes beyond theoretical knowledge and focuses a lot on actual implementation with plenty of hands on experience of real life situations faced by the organizations in implementing High Maturity.

Lot of organizations are aiming to achieve CMMI levels 4 and 5. However, there is very limited reference material available with regards to the same to help the organizations comprehend the model correctly. Since the level of experience in these levels is limited and also there is lot of variation in the interpretation of these practices by different people, thus, organizations are struggling to meet their implementation goals and deadlines.

Lack of trainings in the area related to High Maturity is also adding to the pains of the organization working towards High Maturity implementation.

The USP of the course is that it has been designed and is being delivered by High Maturity Lead Appraiser himself.

Workshop Objective

This workshop provides details on what is high maturity and its characteristics. It provides detailed explanation of the concepts and practices at maturity levels 4-5 as well as examples of how statistical methods and tools can be applied to assist in the implementation of these practices. The workshop provides hands on experience on hypothesis testing, Process-Performance Baselines, Process-Performance Models, Control Charts, Regression Analysis and other statistical techniques.

The workshop is composed of lectures and exercises and provides a practical hands-on experience to the participants. The concept knowledge and a level of tool usage would also be provided. After attending the course, the participant will understand the concepts and issues related to CMMI levels 4 and 5 from theoreticalempirical, and practical perspectives.
