The method by which company wants to adapt to CMMI is called a representation. So either organization can adapt for staged or continuous representation. In the continuous representation process areas are organized by functional area. For example, a company interested to improve its Project Management capability would focus on IPM, ISM, IT, PMC, PP, QPM, RSKM and SAM.
