Spalding Consulting, Inc., Appraised at CMMI-DEV, Maturity Level 3

 Spalding Consulting, Inc. (Spalding) recently announced that the company has achieved a Maturity Level 3 rating with the Software Engineering Institute’s (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration for Development (CMMI®-DEV), version 1.3. The rating is conferred on companies that have established defined, repeatable, and effective organizational standards for project management, software engineering, and quality assurance while maintaining a focus on continuous process improvement.

CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization’s standard processes, which are the basis for Maturity Level 3, are established and improved over time.

Spalding was notified of its rating by Carnegie Mellon University on March 16th. Further information on the rating can be found on SEI’s Published Appraisal Results System (PARS), Web site:

According To Barry Spalding, President of Spalding, “Achieving a CMMI® Maturity Level 3 rating offers our customers the confidence of knowing our work products are built according to best practices for our industry and that we are committed to the continuous improvement of our quality and service.”
