Information Process Maturity Model
Join JoAnn Hackos and Dawn Stevens for this vital IPMM review session.
During this afternoon session, we will work together to review and potentially update the Information Process Maturity Model. You will get the latest version of the model questionnaire and the IPMM review article if you tell us you’ve decided to stay for this session. Together, we will review the 10 characteristics and five levels and discuss if and how they might be updated. We will consider the need for additional characteristics or even eliminating one or more of the existing 10.
If we have enough participants, we will split into small groups to review the questions associated with a characteristic and revise them as needed. Each group will report back their recommendations.
We will end with an overall discussion of the future of the IPMM and ideas for getting more organizations involved in conducting their IPMM reviews with CIDM.
