Response Evaluation

The responses to the assessment questionnaire are evaluated to determine the process maturity level. Although specific evaluation approaches vary, the following steps are common:

■ Responses to Boolean questions are used to derive a maturity value. Maturity values may be based on a simple count of yes/no responses, on a specific set of questions that must be answered positively to achieve a given maturity level, or on a weighting scheme that defines the maturity level of an organization that answers a specific question positively.

■ Responses to quantitative questions are compared with industry averages, when available. Both quality and productivity data is collected, and compared averages are published in the technical literature.

■ Responses to qualitative questions are used to derive additional insight into the current process. By documenting local conditions and constraints, qualitative responses establish a baseline for interpretation.
