This group of volunteers will participate in the review of the draft CMMI® MDD V3.0. The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Appraisal Method Definition Document (MDD) provides a defined set of methods for conducting appraisals relative to the CMMI model and ecosystem. The MDD defines the requirements, boundaries of tailoring, and implementation guidance for the application of the appraisal method for the following appraisal types:

  • CMMI Benchmark Appraisals
  • CMMI Sustainment Appraisals
  • CMMI Action Plan Reappraisals (APRs)
  • CMMI Evaluation Appraisals

Anticipated Outcomes:

The volunteers will review the draft MDD. It is expected that the volunteer reviewers will complete a comment disposition matrix to record any feedback. 

It is expected that the draft document will be available for review mid-October. Volunteer reviewers will have two weeks to complete their review and to provide feedback to ISACA. The timeline may adjust depending on resource availability and release schedule.
