Hello ALL
Can anybody please tell me that is it necessary for CMM level Companies to adopt Agile Software Development process, or can any Company can implement it? Basically I want to know the relation between these two.

Thanks in advance for your valuable guidance.

There is no direct connection between CMM and Agile.

I have heard of auditors who claimed that a good Extreme Programming team shouldn't have problems being audited for CMM level 3 or 4, if I remember correctly.

If at all, I'd see them more as being in conflict. Both could be seen as risk-handling strategies, but while CMM seems to be more about making a process predictable, Agile is more concerned about making it adaptable.

Yes just want to second Ilja's point. We are a CMMI organization and our project is using Scrum since past one year. We have tailored some of both and during audits we are able to maintain level 4 with some extra work, and for us, that seems to be enough.

You are also highlighting the conflict the Ilja was hinting at. CMM will readily expend effort to verify process compliance, whereas agile methods seek curtail any effort that is not directly related to producing working (maintainable) software.

Hi Ilja, Gagan & Peer
Thanks a lot for sharing your views in this thread. Got a good idea about the topic I posted.
More suggestions and guidance will be wel-comed further.
