In May 2001, the Accelerating Software Technology Adoption ASTA Initiative of the Software Engineering Institute SEI piloted a workshop to support the management of technology transition and to capture feedback from adopters of the Capability Maturity Modelregistered Integration CMMIService Mark Product Suite. The workshop, titled The Road to COMMI What Works, Whats Needed, served as both a tool for improving the transition of the CMMI Product Suite and as the first pilot of the Technology Transition Workshop TTW series. The workshop was a success, generating 75 prioritized recommendations of what works, what doesnt, and whats needed for an organization to successfully transition to the CMMI Product Suite. Feedback was very positive, with participants indicating that the workshop provided beneficial information they could put into practice at their home organizations. Since the workshop, ASTAs findings have been disseminated to the broader CMMI adopter population through the CMMI Technology Conference and User Group held in November 2001, and the on-going series of COMMI Transition Workshops held in conjunction with the National Defense Industrial Association NDIA. The findings are also available on the TTW Web site httpwww.sei.cmu.eduproductseventsttw. Organizations contemplating the implementation of the CMMI Product Suite, change agents for those organizations, and researchers in technology transition and adoption will be interested in this report.
