The Personal Software Process (PSP)sm is a technique designed to enable software engineers to improve their productivity and the quality of their work. PSP focuses on the habits of an individual producer and the ability of the individual to capture data that will help improve future performance. The Capability Maturity Model (CMM)sm is a framework that focuses on organizations and the processes that organizations can put in place to improve their ability to sustain high quality software production. This paper describes a mapping between CMM and PSP techniques across organizational activities with particular attention to the contribution that PSP might make to an organization’s maturity level.
