For the last several months I have been part of a small international team doing some serious work developing a #MaturityModel for #Microsoft365. While it’s restricted the number of blog posts I have written, it’s produced some hefty, truly useful content over on the Microsoft Community Docs portal.
The Maturity Model for Microsoft 365 (MM4M365 to its friends) is all about:
- Enabling organisations to improve themselves through use of technology
- Providing a means of bench-marking company and department competencies
- Helping decision makers to select appropriate approaches
- Developing an organisational business and technical road map based on what’s possible, what’s desired and the organisation’s culture and drivers
- Aligning implementation needs and objectives
It’s divided into a range of business competencies, with specific characteristics at each of the maturity model levels that describe how mature that business competency is in your organisation, department or process.
The Maturity Model defines 5 different levels, ranging from that Initial stage where you are just figuring out how to do things, through increasing levels of improvement and optimisation coupled with control and assurance, peaking at a level 5 which represents a zenith of productivity, efficiency and agility
You can read all about it here: https://aka.ms/m365-community-docs (look at the stuff on the right hand side)
But, before you do, have a look at this survey and help us build a picture of what organisations needs are.
I think it’s really interesting stuff. Perhaps you will too.
PS: If you feel that you might want to become an actual expert in this stuff, inside you company or as a consultant, then we are going to be hosting MM4M365 Practitioners sessions. Sign up here, there is no cost.
