CMMI Services is an integrated set of best practices that improves performance and key capabilities for organizations that provide services, including B2B, B2C, standalone services, and those that are part of a product offering.


The service industry is a significant driver for worldwide economic growth — 80% of the world's business is service-based. However, without a strong service delivery strategy, it's easy to over-promise and under-deliver. Many organizations lack the ability to react quickly to incidents that impact service delivery, leading to time delays, cost overruns, and failure to meet customer expectations.

CMMI Services is an integrated set of best practices that improves an organization's capability to efficiently and effectively deliver quality service offerings that meet market and customer needs.​
