Private CMMI® Classes

Inspire your team with one of our uniquely infotaining CMMI classes via virtual instructor-led instruction.
Motivated people perform better.

In a private class, we deliver the training in a virtual event exclusive to your employees. It will likely save you money if you have 6-8 or more students.

In our public classes, students enroll on our website in a class that will include people from other organizations. We maintain a full schedule of classes, typically published months in advance.

WHY CHoose Us?

a Seasoned Instructor...

Nationally recognized instructor Bill Smith has averaged a stellar 4.9+ (out of 5) student feedback rating while teaching over 300 certified CMMI classes to more than 4000 students. His private classes have earned multiple, on-the-spot customer awards.

"Relevant examples, humor great, excellent management of time, impressive command of material and course."
Bill Smith At Reston Town Center

...WHo Will Keep Your Team Awake

Even virtually, we refuse to engage in death-by-slide! Our exclusive instructor is so passionately engaging that he's even been featured in a book: Tickers: What Makes People... Tick! And Pursue a Career They Love!

"Great instructor! Kept things lively and interesting!"

...and Help Them to APPRECIATE the Model

We emphasize the use of CMMI to improve performance -- not to build mountains of shelfware. We'll provide plenty of examples and "war stories" from our own experience, all so you can make your organization better -- not just compliant. People literally walk out of our classes excited about the model!

"Bill's realistic perspective... and his enthusiasm are contagious."

Private vs. Public

Why You Might Want a Private Class...

For larger class sizes, perhaps 6-8 or more, it may simply be more cost-effective.

Cost advantage:​

  • Low incremental price (encourages training people you otherwise could not afford to)

Other factors:​

  • More control over dates (subject to availability)

  • More targeted class discussions (drawing on examples from your organization)

...And Why A Public Class COuld be Better

Consider public classes if have fewer than 6-8 students.

Cost advantages:

  • Probably much lower per-student cost (for a small class)

Other factors:​

  • Ability to spread students across multiple class dates (to fit their schedules)

  • Fewer work-related distractions

  • Less "group-think" and more sharing of new ideas (as your students work with people from other companies)

  • More people in class = more examples from students rather than just the instructor

Example Special Presentation

We deliver one or two special presentations in a typical Intro to CMMI class. This one focuses on problems often found in process improvement initiatives -- causing people to hate the CMMI! -- and how to avoid them. It won an award at the 2011 NDIA CMMI Conference in Denver.
