Changes to Context sub-topic
I have expanded the Context sub-topic to provide a better feel for the history of software development and especially the drive to create a software development profession.
There probably should be something about the "wicked problems" and how the overhead involved in the CMMI is designed to help software development solve these types of complex problems.
Also, the CMMI is part of the drive to professionalize software development much as the modern medical system is considered a profession due to a large body of knowledge which is based on scientific investigation.
Article Reads Like News Release
Could someone provide clarification as to what parts of this article seem "overly promotional"?
Back in May 2012 (!) someone added an inappropriate link to a supplier site. The article then contained much more (C) Carnegie and other commercial references which subsequently appear to have been toned down or edited out. Second removing the tag as it denigrates the overall article MaryEFreeman (talk) 16:16, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
I think the cite flagging in the § I just edited is for the unsubstantiated thing about decomposition. I think what was trying to be said and what it is perfectly valid and reasonable to say, is that work is divided into requirements analysis, design and implementation. Comically in the current common culture with "agile" and what not, even having this, let alone having them at some known quality level, is a tremendous step. Nonetheless it's not supported by the defining document or anything else, and technically it is distinct from and not specifically mandated by CMM. So removing the cite flag as the rest is regurgitation. Decomposition is common sense which the capitalist juggernaut generally blows past but it's still in the nature of a specific prescription.

History section OR-ish
The History section is pretty good (if a bit wordy), but it's more a new (or at very least unsourced) commentary on existing facts, than existing facts per se. Please add more history details for CMM, then this section can be closed. TinaFromTexas (talk) 23:49, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
