Title

Mapping OGC Prince 2 to SEI CMMI 1.1

Abstract/Description

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) version 1.1, developed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), USA and the PRoject IN Controlled Environment (PRINCE) version 2 developed by Central Computing and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) now Office of Government Commerce (OGC) as UK Government standard for IT Project Management, share a common concern with Project and Quality management by improved process management. Both are driven by similar concerns and intuitively correlated. Organizations concerned with PRINCE 2 certification often question its overlap with the CMMI. We have looked into OGC PRINCE 2 process/components and map it to the different goals/practices in the SEI CMMI 1.1. Analysis provides answers to some common questions about the comparisons and mapping of these standards. The result of the analysis indicates that, although PRINCE 2-compliant organization would not necessarily satisfy all of the Process Areas of CMMI, but it would satisfy most of the goals and practices of continuous representation. PRINCE 2 certified organizations would have generally significant advantages & less difficulty in obtaining CMMI certification. In order to achieve good transformation there is a need of applying proper software metrics. These metrics needs to be implemented on each and every process / goal /Practice.
