About the Webinar
In this webinar, Eileen Forrester will discuss the release of CMMI V1.3. All three CMMI models, CMMI-ACQ, CMMI-DEV, and CMMI-SVC, will be released as technical reports on November 1. A series of other products, such as training, SCAMPI upgrades, revised books, and improved certification procedures will be launched month by month throughout 2011. Attend this webinar to get an understanding of what's available (and when) to support your effective use of CMMI V1.3. Learn about sunsetting of V1.2, reviewing the changes to the SCAMPI method, qualifying for the appraiser and instructor roles, and available upgrade training. We will also be seeking your questions and input.

In addition, Forrester will describe additional plans for CMMI-SVC in the coming year, and opportunities for you to participate.
