RESTON, Va., June 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ardent Management Consulting (ArdentMC) announced today that it has been appraised at Maturity Level 3 of the CMMI Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). CMMI is a capability improvement framework that provides organizations with the tools and support to benchmark and compare best practices in people, processes and technology by identifying gaps in an effort to advance performance.
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 set of standard processes, which is the basis for Maturity Level 3, is well documented and improved over time.
ArdentMC's journey to reaching Maturity Level 3 started nearly a year ago when senior management set a goal of standardizing the way ArdentMC does business in an effort to further enhance client delivery and satisfaction. Under the stewardship of an Engineering Process Group (EPG), comprised of a cross-section of resources, best practices were established across 18 process areas. These best practices were derived by identifying gaps and creating standardized process documentation and templates that were implemented throughout the company with customized training. Additionally, the entire company was invited to help establish and embrace the ArdentMC way of doing business through continuous improvement initiatives across these 18 process areas. Cyber Solutions, Inc., an independent appraisal firm spent a week confirming ArdentMC's maturity level through artifact examination and interviews.
Brandon LaBonte, ArdentMC President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The decision of the appraisal team to certify us at Maturity Level 3 is a testament to ArdentMC's commitment to ensuring that the company grows while continuing to exceed customer expectations."
