CMMI V2.0 is currently under development by a number of industry working groups coordinated by the CMMI Institute. The model is planned to deliver best in-class solutions to elevate and benchmark organizational performance with demonstrated results. The model will:

  • Include performance management

  • Provide more frequent performance measures

  • Deliver confidence for buyers (benchmarking)

  • Make the CMMI easier to adopt/use

  • Ensure value-added adoption and reduce total cost of ownership

  • Provide guidance and tools on how to improve

  • Provide flexibility/tailorability (right size)

V2.0 will incorporate Practices from the three current constellations (DEV, ACQ and SVC plus the People CMM). It will also have Practices relating to safety and security concerns. The appraisal method and training will be revised to reflect the new model.

The Development portion of CMMI V2.0 is planned to be released in March of 2018. Additional parts of the model will be released later in 2018.

Appraisals against V2.0 will begin in 2019. The current version, V 1.3, is planned to be sunsetted around 18 months after the official release of V2.0. V1.3 appraisals will not be accepted after March 2020.
