Organizational Maturity Score

Our framework generates a single maturity score for your product management organization based on three key dimensions:

  • Maturity of your product management-related processes such as roadmapping and release planning
  • Professional competency of your product managers and their leadership
  • Effectiveness of your organizational setup, including factoring of accountabilities across disciplines

The diagram below depicts the top-level dashboard. Drill-down capabilities allow you to explore more granular scores used in the maturity score calculation and even simulate how investments in various related activities will likely impact the maturity score.
