I’ve heard others talk about “high maturity” organizations and “high maturity” practices. What is “high maturity”?

High maturity includes selecting the right measurement data to collect and what to do with that measurement data to support effective decision making about the business that will improve performance stability and predictability. The appropriate measurements and analysis enable the organization to understand its processes well enough to optimize them and affect the bottom line.

In the CMMI models, the term “high maturity” refers to the process areas Causal Analysis and Resolution (CAR), Organizational Performance Management (OPM), Organizational Process Performance (OPP), and Quantitative Project or Work Management (QPM or QWM). The practices in these process areas cover making decisions based on performance data.
