M. Jenkins (Costa Rica)


Software project management, CMMI, PMBOK.


This paper describes the experience gained by a medium size financial organization in combining the CMMI and the PMBOK to establish and maintain a combined software project management methodology that comprises practices from both models. We explain how we designed and implemented the methodology, how the practices proposed in these two models were tailored to the needs and available resources in the organization, and summarize the benefits obtained thus far from its use. The issues discussed in this paper should interest organizations in need of improving their software project management capabilities.
