Laying that out in a way that is probably more recognisable, we can see the familiar rows and columns of Maturity Models.

However, it is almost certain that the ones you have seen in the past have (as shown with a red border):

¨      Only defined these things in terms of Methods (processes) and not in terms of Artefacts, Environment and Culture.

¨      Only defined the Measures (aka evidence) and allowed for the creation of an Assessment and not the rest of the Transformational information.

One might argue that the things which are missing in most existing Maturity Models (Artefacts, Culture, Environment and Motivation, Actions, Guidance) are the things of most value! All these things are included in all Pragmatic Ontologies and Frameworks.

Questions to ponder...

What Maturity Models do you know about or use?

Do they only define Method (aka Process) Maturity?

Do they only allow you to assess maturity and not why or how to increase it?

Does that cause any problems?

If so, what will you do to alleviate them?
