Typo in Image[edit]

"Quantitatively" is misspelled on the topmost image on this page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:55, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

"Controlled" is misspelled on the image as well.

Spelling error[edit]

There is a spelling mistake in the Capability Maturity Model Integration Diagram - it reads quantitaVIely and should read quantitatively. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:37, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Including People CMMI in the main content[edit]

The main article - Capability Maturity Model Integration - must necessarily contain a sub-section about People CMMI. This is yet another model under CMMI just like CMMI for Dev, CMMI for Services and CMMi for Acquisition. I can see that there is a separate topic in Wikipedia on People CMM which is OK, but some short info needs to be there in the above mentioned article as well for completeness. Would be glad to help here, if required. (talk) 11:34, 30 January 2013 (UTC) 30-Jan-2013 Himanshu K

No Help[edit]

This article really didn't help me understand what CMMI is. Trideceth12 (talk) 08:15, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Agree I feel that the various levels should be described in more detail, while now there is just the image with rather terse indications and the lists of process areas which lack any definition (and just repeat Process area (CMMI) and so are of little value). It may be that there are massive checklists, but the sort of answer I would like would describe how one might in five minutes get a first impression of which level an organisation operates on: what features does the organisation have, what does it do, does it have dedicated CMMI staff and processes, etc. and above all: what distinguishes it from one at a different level?

Thank you for creating this CMMI explanation[edit]

This wiki on CMMI is extremely valuable, thank you. Years ago a govt department paid $1,500 each for me and my project colleagues to attend a day course on CMMI - and I was just the technical writer on a project. CMMI is a MARVELLOUS way to establish such good order and process in an organisation that it can be the stand-or-fall competitive advantage. As a contractor I've worked in scores of companies and govt depts. In the shambles ones I witnessed bankruptcy, high staff turnover, drug abuse and staff suicide. In the well organised ones I saw pride, joy, health and success in the staff, as well as happy customers and broader community. Thank you again for putting this together for everyone to have and use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:44, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Words fail me; I am among those who think this article gives very little idea of what CMMI involves or offers, as mentioned in various other sections. PJTraill (talk) 09:54, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Why sometimes spelt with lowercase ‘i’?[edit]

I observe that a number of people spell it as ‘CMMi’, but that this seems to be considered wrong by the majority; a clarification would be useful, but I have found nothing so far on the internet. PJTraill (talk) 09:54, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

P.S. I posed the question at, but have no idea if that is a useful site, though at least WOT is happy with it. PJTraill (talk) 10:00, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
I have since heard that some people use a lowercase ‘i’ because ‘Integration’ was added to the name later. PJTraill (talk) 23:05, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
