Why improve development process?

Recently I began to work as a Quality Engineer and one of the first questions that I did was: “Why are you looking for process improvements?”.

The answer was to get the best practicies and spread the knowledge around the company. This answer, at least for me, sounds like: “now I’m working to get the best team performance and it don’t care if a process is CMMI like, PMBOK like, or SCRUM like”.

I understand that assessment in a maturity model like CMMI (you read right: ASSESSMENT, CMMI isn’t a certification program) can be good if the main goal of the appraisal is to do the things in a better way, not only to get a CMMI logo in your bussines card.

Think about it. Process improvment can’t only be a marketing strategy, it’s to get the things done better than we are doing now.
