The Organisation Maturity Index (OMI) is a Maturity Reference Model and related Body of Knowledge that represents the Key Capabilities and their respective Maturity Levels for any Organisation or Organisational Unit required to function, and to build Performance Advantage towards a Leadership position .
“Capability can be defined as the ability to mobilise resources to achieve an aim”
“Capability Maturity can be defined as the Functioning Level (Habituated Level) that determines a level of Performance and the Learning Level (Change Capability)”
The purpose of the OMI is to provide users with a researched, and scientific set of Information and tools, that enable them plan and implement Transformation, Change and Improvement that achieve their Business Aims and Ambitions, and provide greater assurance they will be achieved. It enables appropriate consideration of the starting point context for the Organisation, and provides a relevant roadmap to select and develop those priority Capabilities required to achieve their specific business aims.
The OMI Reference Model is one of a number of Models within the Organisation Capability Maturity Framework (OrgCMF™), all of which are underpinned by Dynamic Systems Maturity Theory (DSMT).
The Structure of OrgCMF™ Reference Models
Each model, including the OMI consists of ‘Dynamics’ and ‘Constructs’.
Dynamics; are the forces that influence the Functioning level of an Organisation, Team or Capability. They can be viewed as Macro Capabilities.
Constructs; are the Capability Building Blocks for ‘Dynamics’. They can be viewed as Micro Capabilities.
Maturity Levels; There are 7 normative maturity levels within OrgCMF™, derived from 15 Scientific Levels of DSMT.
Organisation Capability Improvement Methodology (OCIM™); is an approach to achieving Transformation, Change or Improvement Performance Aims through identification and building of the relevant Capabilities and their respective Maturities.
The OMI is structured into 4 logical groupings (indices) of relared 'Dynamics' and their constituent 'Construct' Capabilities.
Productive The dynamics that relate to the physical environment and the work an individual does, and how it is organised.
Human The dynamics that relate to individual and group behaviours, relationships and personalities and how they influence performance and growth.
Directive The dynamics that relate to setting, organising and achieving the aims and ambitions of the organisation and how they motivate performance and growth.
Macro The dynamics that relate to the business, environment and resources that influence or are leveraged to achieve the aims, ambitions and performance of the organisation.
A defined set of Traits are stated for every maturity level (1 to 7) for the ‘Model’, ‘Dynamics’ & ‘Constructs’ and these may be viewed under ‘OrgCMF™’ drop down on the navigation menu. www.orgcmf.com. Also, the Development Roadmap actions are also defined for each level, enabling the user to both calibrate their Change & Improvement actions and to build the selected Macro Capability (Dynamic) or Micro Capability (Construct).
There are a different set of guidance rules for next actions depending on whether the current measured maturity level is 'Disintegrative (Maturity Level 1 to 4) or 'Integrative' (Maturity Level 4 to 7). Assessment Reports apply these rules for every Capability Measured (Model, Dynamic, Construct) as presented in the real-time, online report.
A comprehensive set of ‘User Configurable’ & ‘Standard’ online Maturity Assessments are available on the Platform Plans:
Discover your organisation’s current Capabilities & their Maturities.
Identify, Analyse & Prioritize those Capabilities required to achieve the Aims and Objectives and build Innovation, Agility, Productivity, Resilience Collaboration and Culture.
Set target maturities for priority Capabilities and assign ownership for achieving targets.
Get appropriate action guidance for all chosen Capabilities (Dynamics & Constructs)
