Reduce resistance to CMMI practices

By ChangeAdvocate ·
Tags: Off Topic
When preparing for CMMI certification, staff view the practices as work and a hinderance to productivity. However, where adopted wholeheartily, marked improvement in quality, cycle time and support requirements is seen. What is the best approach to satisfying the need to integrate the CMMI practices and overcoming resistance to change?

Rick Mauer wrote an excellent book, "Beyond the Wall of Resistance," on overcoming resistance to change.

If you can determine what about CMMI practices interests your staff, you will be well on your way. One may be interested in reduced support requirements, and another in the possibility of more money in the future, etc. It's always good to start with the one most open to change and give that person some special recognition. Always remember the key question, "What's in it for them?"

Good luck.
