This chapter presents the Capability Maturity Model Fast-track Toolkit (CMMFT) programme which aims to provide a faster and cheaper method of obtaining Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) capability with the end goals of increasing quality of software products and gaining competitive advantage as software development practices are recognised internationally. The programme is specifically designed for helping software SMEs (small- to medium-sized enterprises) in Hong Kong to “fast track” their quality and process improvement effort. We first present an overview of the CMMFT programme, including its expected benefits, project deliverables, and project plan. Then, the results of our project are summarised. Finally, we outline the key lessons learned and future work. It is hoped that others can learn from our experience in assisting SMEs to enhance their development capability and become more competitive.
