Hey, Jeff – How much does it cost to get a CMMI maturity level for a small business? We’ve missed a few opportunities to bid on CMMI L3 federal government contracts recently, but as a small (21 FTEs) Information Technology consulting firm, we are concerned about the resources we’ll need to get a CMMI level. How much does it cost to adopt CMMI for a small business? ~ Jack N.
Being a small company shouldn’t hinder you. Small companies all over North America are figuring out ways to achieve the competitive advantages that CMMI can give them. So the question is not, “How much does it cost to adopt CMMI?” The question is, “How much does it cost if we do not adopt CMMI?”
As small-business leaders in our industry, we understand we need to invest in building a foundation that can support quality operations and business growth. But just because very large corporations spend hundreds of thousands of dollars adopting CMMI, there’s no need for very small companies to do the same.
The resource needs of emerging or “extra-small” companies are different. We get it. That’s why we created our CMMIxs subscription program: To help small companies like yours take advantage of the value and opportunity CMMI brings to your business. By utilizing this subscription service, you’ll be able to spread the cost and get the help you need at a manageable cost.
The cool thing about a subscription service is that emerging businesses like yours can take advantage of virtual tools, prepackaged events, just-enough-and-not-too-much consulting, and assistance on demand. You’ll reach your goal affordably.
