      It seems the experiment is working! APLN & SPIN *can* co-operate

      Please join us for the March meeting of the Greater Baltimore SPIN and

      gbSPIN's mission is to provide pragmatic, practical, and timely content on
      process improvement topics. We won't be limiting ourselves to CMMI or other
      technologies from the SEI because there's so much more to the conversation
      than just CMMI.

      By joining forces with APLN, we will work to bring you high-value, relevant
      and important content on the subject of project, product, and process

      Our meeting will be Wednesday, March 26th, @ 5:30pm in Towson.
      (Details at link below.)


      How to Improve Business Processes with CMMI Without Killing Your Business
      An overview of what CMMI really is in plain language.

      About gbSPIN:
      "SPIN" = "Software and Systems Process Improvement Network". SPINs are as
      close to an SEI "chapter" as one can be. Greater Baltimore SPIN (gbSPIN) is
      about bringing value. Value has many dimensions, opportunities, and
      Value to: our members, the community, organizations and businesses; the
      industry, and to our Sponsors.

      About APLN-MD:
      The national APLN group is focused on making people great leaders by
      focusing on Value, Customers, Teams, Individuals, Context, and Uncertainty.
      The APLN Maryland Chapter is seeking individuals interested in sharing agile
      experiences, and helping people become great project leaders.

      About our Partnership:
      This "grand experiment" comes from the understanding that:

      * Agile and CMMI share goals, albeit their means and maybe their
      motives are different.

      * Neither Agile nor CMMI are right or wrong, there are only good and
      bad implementations of either.

      * Bringing APLN and SPIN together can only be a good thing, if
      "produced" by the right people.

      * Neither will go away any time soon, thus, helping each community
      understand the other is necessary and can't be avoided.

      * It would be a service to both communities to have them understand
      each other and cooperate.
