Evaluate the key practices and improvement activities from the people capability maturity model
System Improvement Plan
Suppose you are working as a senior software development manager in a software house. The company develops custom software for clients. In one of the development projects, a postmortem analysis reveals that a particular developer out of a team of five (5) was responsible for the major failure of the developed software product. This has caused the project to run 20% behind schedule and exceed its monetary budget by 30%. Initial estimates point to an additional twelve (12) weeks from the original 36-week effort to correct the failures. You have been asked by your supervisor to create an improvement plan to address these issues using the People Capability Maturity Model (P-CMM). The P-CMM model is available at the following URL: http://www.dtic.mil/cgi-
Write a five to six (5-6) page paper in which you:
Evaluate the key practices and improvement activities from the people capability maturity model and recommend the practices you would use to address the software failure.
Describe an appropriate strategy for implementing the recommended improvement activities that you have identified.
Explain how to measure the return on the company investment after applying the key practices and improvement activities.
