Organizational Change Management & Consulting
People CMM is a “state-of-the-art” organizational change management model that can be a great reference for an organization willing to improve the capability and effectiveness of its workforce.
One of the key features of People CMM is that it offers a roadmap for a progresive transformation of an organization's culture, from a people management to a continuous improvement culture.
SpaceMinds provides an extensive experience in the introduction and successful implementation of People CMM best practices in an organization.
With our consulting services we can help your organization identify key improvement areas (with SCAMPI with People CMM Appraisals) and assist in the definition, launch and execution of an integrated continuous improvement program (with the SpaceMinds® Method/Aproach as presented in several international congresses & conferences).
Using the SpaceMinds® M/A, organizational change is organized, managed and led proactively, developing synergies that generate a positive actitude toward change by most members of the organization who will embrace it and facilitate actual improvement and implementation.
Indispensable training for managers and HR professionals
People CMM offers a rich and solid body of knowledge for executive and management education as well as technical training of HR professionals.
Considering the systemic view of People CMM, as well as the solid experiences in which the practices of the model are based, there is little doubt, if any, that a training program on the fundamentals and practices of the model provides great value to any professional who reach out to this management model.
For this reason, People CMM can be conceived as a key reference for effective training of HR professionals, people managers, executives, line-managers and people in general who are involved or interested in implementing continuous improvement programs in their organizations.
As an SEI Partner for the People CMM, SpaceMinds offers the official Carnegie Mellon-SEI "Introduction to the People CMM" training course in "public" and "onsite/in-Company" settings.
You can read these People CMM Testimonials for first-hand opinions from participants in SpaceMinds sponsored "Introduction to the People CMM" training courses.
Organizational & HR process appraisals
The SCAMPI Method (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) is a process developed by Carnegie Mellon University's SEI to offer quality benchmarkings with regards to CMMI® models and People CMM.
SCAMPI includes three "flavors": SCAMPI A, B and C, facilitating the evaluation an organization can perform using People CMM as a reference model, by applying different levels of rigor and organizational coverage.
From a simple "proof of concept/intent" of defined processes (SCAMPI C), to a validation of the rollout approach in the organization (SCAMPI B), to even the rigorous evaluation or benchmarking of process institutionalization (SCAMPI A, including the posibility of obtaining a rating of the organizational maturity level).
To perform a SCAMPI with People CMM appraisal or evaluation, it is necessary to use the services of an Authorized SCAMPI Lead Appraiser for the People CMM sponsored by an SEI Partner.
As SEI Partner for the People CMM, and being Yan Bello an active SCAMPI Lead Appraiser authorized by the SEI,
SpaceMinds offers the SCAMPI Appraisals services all over the world.
