    I am looking for some data that clarifies… at level 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 (on the CMM maturity matrix) what is the percentage of waste (% of Sales) that’s typical e.g.: X level of maturity usually runs at X percent waste. I’m particularly interested in data for the health insurance industry or the banking industry.

    Thanks

    You can find some examples from companies who have shared the benefits of increasing their maturity levels at the Software Engineering Institute website http://www.sei.cmu.edu but be aware that CMMI levels are based on process, not on outcomes. There are valid assumptions that better processes achieve better results. I don’t know that anyone has statistically correlated maturity levels with quality or with waste reduction.

    Straydog,

    Thank you very much for your suggestion and I just had a CMMI report sent to me that attempts to do a rough correlation. I’d be happy to send it to you, if you’re interested.
