Maturity is defined in three stages: Starting, Developing and Maturing. Organizations participating in the research receive a Scorecard based on the Foundational Framework showing their maturity in each dimension. Scores are calculated based on self-assessment by participants who take part in annual surveys containing over 100 questions.
The Scorecard maps the nine dimensions of the Foundational Framework to the 3-level maturity scale above. Scores are calculated based on responses to an extensive online survey.
There are two types of scorecards: the Collective Scorecard (consolidating answers from multiple participants from the same organization) and the Individual Scorecard (based on answers from a single participant).
