People Capability Maturity Model® Framework
The People Capability Maturity Model® (People CMM®) is a tool to help you successfully ad- dress the critical people issues in your organization. The People CMM employs the process ma- turity framework of the highly successful Capability Maturity Model® for Software (SW- CMM®) [Carnegie Mellon University 95] as a foundation for a model of best practices for man- aging and developing an organization’s workforce. Version 2 of the People CMM was designed to be consistent with the CMMI [CMMI 00, Chrissis 06]. The Software CMM, and more recently the CMMI-DEV, have been used by software organizations around the world for guiding dramatic improvements in their ability to improve productivity and quality, reduce costs and time to mar- ket, and increase customer satisfaction. Based on the best current practices in fields such as hu- man resources, knowledge management, and organizational development, the People CMM guides organizations in improving their processes for managing and developing their workforce. The People CMM helps organizations characterize the maturity of their workforce practices, es- tablish a program of continuous workforce development, set priorities for improvement actions, integrate workforce development with process improvement, and establish a culture of excellence. Since its release in 1995, thousands of copies of the People CMM have been distributed, and it is used by small and large organizations in many industries and market sectors worldwide— Pfizer, Intel, IBM, Boeing, BAE SYSTEMS, Accenture, Tata Consultancy Services, Ericsson, Samsung, Lockheed Martin, Club Mahindra, HCL, Novo Nordisk, and Pershing , to name a few.
