Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 222 and Year Seven!   

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 221 features an interview with Will McKnight. Will was my first interview all the way back on SPaMCAST 1, check it out, and has graciously come back to the Software Process and Measurement Cast to kickoff Year Seven with a discussion of the CMMI as a refrence model.  Will reminds us that the CMMI if used correctly adds value. We also argued over the phrase "best practices!"

Will McKnight is the founder and President of Next Level Consultants, a SEI (CMMI) Partner providing process improvement, project management, and organizational change management services to the software development community.  

Will is a software development and process improvement specialist with experience in improvement programs in multi-national settings, in a wide range of organization sizes, styles, and types of software development methodologies.  SEI Certified CMMI Lead Appraiser that has performed numerous appraisals around the world.  Both practical and academic background in organizational behavior change required to achieve compliance to and realize the benefits of process improvement models.
