Commercial Delivery Methodology
The Commercial Delivery Methodology, or CDM, is offered as an effective means for vendor organizations to formalize their professional services business. It documents the CDM as an instance of a business lifecycle appropriate for the larger services firm with the need to bid and manage a relatively high percentage of large, fixed price, and potentially higher risk projects. The chapters describe each phase of the business lifecycle in the management of project contracts. The CDM is a much-needed tool of business management, incorporating many project management practices, and operates alongside the project, or application, lifecycle familiar to project managers and their team.
