If you are in need of a CMMI level 3 compliant,
agile, yet “plan-able”,
software development process,
our SmartMethod fits the bill.
The purpose of the SmartMethod is to help you deliver more value for money,
fit-for-purpose business-usable software, on time, to cost, as-agreed, time and again.
Its purpose is also to help minimise variation and risks, and to create a consistent customer experience and harmonious work environment. Furthermore the SmartMethod helps you prepare for a smooth transition to IT operations (production) and cost effective maintenance.
In a nutshell, the features that differentiate the SmartMethod from others like Scrum, XP, DSDM, RUP, and EssUP are:
► agile specification, incremental build
► Enables early validation, estimation and planning (unlike Agile methods like XP)
► Dove-tails with your business-case process
► Facilitates a smooth transition away from waterfall, to any cycle iterative.
► The only method to spell out all CMMI level 2 and 3 practices by role / workflow
► Deliverable and practices-focused (much easier to master than role-based like RUP);
► Has a Right‑sizing tool, to scale documentation in view of size, risks, etc.
► Fully integrates with ITIL change and release management
► Aligns with PMBOK / PRINCE2 and fixes the gaps re software specifics in these
► Can be used with MS-office only, or any mix of tools of your preference
