Broadsword makes appraisals easier for you. We’re a CMMI Institute/ISACA Partner licensed to conduct all classes of CMMI Appraisals.
We’ve been there – right where you are. Every one of our consultants has been an engineer, a software developer, or a project manager that’s been through this process and knows what it’s like to adopt processes and be appraised.
Though proud of our advanced degrees and training from prestigious universities, the Broadsword team takes a practical, not academic, approach to appraisals. Because we’ve seen software development and engineering delivered in so many different ways over the years, we understand what you go through every day. As a result, we don’t try to fit you into the CMMI model. We make the CMMI fit into you.
And, if you are an agile organization, we can help you understand how well your company’s implementation of agile methods and Scrum is working. Our unique appraisal approach gets rid of the guesswork and provides a detailed, quantitative assessment.

Our Appraisal offerings include:
- CMMI Benchmark Appraisals
- CMMI Evaluation Appraisals
- CMMI Mini-Appraisal
- Process Diagnostics
- Agile Appraisals
Appraisals are designed to help your organization identify operational strengths and weaknesses. The formal method used to evaluate an organization’s performance is the CMMI Benchmark Appraisal.
There are four types of appraisals: Benchmark (formerly called “SCAMPI”), Sustainment, Action Plan Re-Appraisal, and Evaluation.
Most of our clients “cycle” through multiple Evaluation appraisals prior to their Benchmark Appraisal as a way to mitigate risks and identify gaps.
