Improving the maturity level
The principal focus of this issue is improving the maturity level of organisations, such as technical, marketing, or IT organisations.
An important topic in the technical department is requirements management: the process in front of the development process.

It's a proven fact that a pragmatic approach to coaching project managers enables these companies to achieve their goals more quickly. To find out how that works, read the article "Getting to the next CMMI level faster and more reliably".
