Dynamic Systems Maturity Theory Guru, Dr. Myles Sweeney describes it as: Organisation ‘Maturity Level’ is it’s ‘Functioning Level’ (Practices & Resulting Outcomes) which reflects its ‘Learning Level’ (Ability to Learn & Change).
Yes there are 15 definitive and normative levels in organisation science, these are grouped into a scale of 7 for practical use, and can be seen on the organisation Capability Maturity Assessment platform www.orgcmf.com.
We normally measure on the 7-level scale for the organisation system as a whole, or sub-systems the key Capabilities and their Building Blocks (Dynamics & Constructs) as they relate to the Objective under consideration e.g. Performance, Agility, Innovation, Productivity, Collaboration etc.
Maturity Assessments can be configured, distributed and monitored using ODTI’s on-line Digital Assessment Platform, which draws from the extensive database of multi choice questions in the database which are underpinned by the Dynamics Systems Maturity Theory – Reference Model. Users choose a sample representative base of participants who receive an email link to take the assessment and view the real-time report if they are permitted on https://orgcmf.com/billing/plans/
Yes, there are a small number of rules. In fact, the high failure rates of change and transformation programs (circa 70%) is as a result of now being aware of, and following these rules.
Capability Maturity Improvement is a sequential Learning Process that must start at the measured maturity level report guidance for the measured capability or building block to assure any change will get traction and be sustainable. Skipping levels is likely to lead to at best wasted effort and at worst maturity regression.
If the measured level of Capability Maturity is 4 or above then the organisation has an integrative capacity to absorb changes recommended at that level. It has self-learning capacity. However, if it is measured at 3 or below, it is disintegrative and foundation capabilities need to be validated and guidance from level 1 needs to be implemented where gaps exist, moving up the levels until the measured level is reached and actioned.
Well, that depends. Sometimes it is only measured once, this happens in scenarios where there is a transactional information requirement. In most cases individuals and team want to monitor improvement in maturity, and recognizing that building maturity even at a construct level must allow for time to take action and embed new practices etc. We recommend no more frequently than bi-monthly and no less frequently than 6 months normally.
This is the core reference model to address all 15 Organisation Dynamics (or selected dynamics as appropriate to the business or operational issue being addressed) that are central to the organisations operation and performance.
