A maturity model is a tool that helps people assess the current effectiveness of a person or group and supports figuring out what capabilities they need to acquire next in order to improve their performance. In many circles maturity models have gained a bad reputation, but although they can easily be misused, in proper hands they can be helpful. Maturity models are structured as a series of levels of effectiveness. It is assumed that anyone in the field will pass through the levels in sequence as they become more capable. The true outcome of a maturity model assessment is not what level you are but the list of things you need to work on to improve. Your current level is merely a piece of intermediate work in order to determine that list of skills to acquire next. Ultimately, it is the idea that you are constantly seeking to test and improve the way in which your organization runs. You are not standing still. Continuous improvement is often achieved by creating review or auditing processes which you then use on the day to day business processes to evaluate their effectiveness, identify improvements, and implement them. Then give it time, let the data roll in, and do it all over again. The maturity of a process or activity can be defined to be at one of five levels, from Level 1 (the least mature) to level 5 (the most mature). The processes at higher levels also address the features of the lower levels. The ground level is Level 0 where no process exists for the activity. From the inception of an organization through its growth, the maturity of its processes usually improves. But this may not be the case for all its business processes. Some may still be at the lower levels. This shows that the organization has not had an all-round maturity of its processes. There also are instances where the maturity level may drop if not monitored or if the documents are not revised, according to changes the business undergoes. Thus, a fully established business can contain processes at different levels.
