Understanding Maturity Level 3: Defined
This chapter is designed to help the reader understand the basic tenets of Maturity Level 3 in the staged representation of the CMMI. However, because this chapter consists of summaries of the process areas, anyone wishing to get a better idea of the model, no matter which representation is to be used, can benefit from this chapter. Once again, we are not attempting to teach the CMMI. We simply offer a condensed version of the various areas and key points to consider.
