31 31 According to the original CMM, "Verifying Implementation describes the steps to ensure that the activities are performed in compliance with the process that has been established. Verification typically encompasses reviews and audits by management and software quality assurance" ([[Paulk et al., 1993, p. 38>>]]). Verifying implementation in the context of RDM focuses on reviews and audits of the key processes areas against the established policies and procedures (which are mainly reflected in the commitment to perform, ability to perform, and activities performed). The goal is to identify whether there is any weakness in the process and how it can be strengthened.
