KM Series - A Methodology for Assessing Sustainability of Partner InstitutionsInstitutional growth toward sustainability cannot be managed or improved unless it is measured. The COMPETE Institutional Sustainability Maturity Model (CISMM) seeks to measure an organization’s progress toward sustainability in more than 100 capability areas, including planning, internal control, training, process definition, and risk management. Based on the outcome of the institutional assessment, COMPETE makes recommendations, where necessary, for the partners to adopt in building their capacity to function sustainably.
The Maturity Model approach, which is based on best practices, is a continual improvement framework of process areas that are assembled into a logical hierarchy of five maturity levels. It was pioneered by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of the Carnegie Mellon University under contract from the U.S. Department of Defense, and has today been widely adopted in the fields of project management, business processes, human capital management, organizational development, etc.
