The People Capability Maturity Model
Wademan, Mark R.; Spuches, Charles M.; Doughty, Philip L.
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v20 n1 p97-123 Mar 2007
The People Capability Maturity Model[R] (People CMM[R]) advocates a staged approach to organizational change. Developed by the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute, this model seeks to bring discipline to the people side of management by promoting a structured, repeatable, and predictable approach for improving an organization's workforce-related processes. A system of best practice processes, and associated practices, holds potential for changing an organization's culture from that of an "ad-hoc"racy to one pursuing workforce excellence. This article introduces Human Performance Technology professionals to the model, its approach, and its potential to improve workforce performance. (Contains 8 figures.)
