The Little TMMi
The Little TMMi – Objective-Driven Test Process Improvement provides
practical support for organizations that aim at improving their test processes.
TMMi is a not-for-profit independent test maturity model developed by the TMMi
Foundation. Using TMMi, organizations can improve their test process and even
have their test process or test organization accredited when it complies with the
requirements. The most important differences between TMMi and other test
improvement models are independence, compliance with international testing
standards, the business-driven (objective-driven) orientation and the complementary
relationship with the CMMI framework.
The objective of The Little TMMi is to support (test) organizations in improving
their test process, to expand the adoption of TMMi and to enhance the growth of
the testing profession.The book is structured for a broad target audience. It
should be part of the toolbox of everyone who needs visibility into the maturity
and quality of the test processes, is affiliated with assessing the test processes
or is involved in improving test processes.
The Little TMMi provides:
• a short and to the point overview of the TMMi model
• the TMMi specific goals and specific practices
• practical experiences and benefits achieved
• an overview of the TMMi assessment process
• guidelines for implementation and deployment
• detailed insight into the relationship between TMMi and CMMI.
