let's move on to focus area maturity levels.
00:04
In this video, we're going to talk about the definition of maturity levels, how to measure them and the different levels.
00:12
Maturity levels in the co bit framework can help you to measure the maturity level of a focus area in order to achieve a particular capability. Level
00:22
capability levels are more granular, while maturity levels are focused as a performance measure at the focus area level.
00:30
Thus, if your performance management requires a higher level to express performance without the granularity applicable to individual process capability ratings, you will utilize a maturity level model.
00:44
Remember, maturity levels are a way to measure the performance of focus areas.
00:49
An example would be the collection of governance and management objectives and underlying components. Instead of one particular governance objective like managing risk,
01:00
a certain level of maturity is achieved. If all the process is contained in the focus area, achieve a particular capability level.
01:08
The capability level required will vary from organization to organization, so you have to define what capability level is required in a particular focus area. In order to measure the overall maturity level.
01:22
Do you see the difference between a capability level and a maturity level now.
01:30
So let's go through each maturity. Level
01:33
zero is incomplete, meaning it may or may not work, and it may or may not be completed. And it may or may not work towards achieving the purpose of a governance and management objective. In a focus area,
01:46
the maturity level of one is initial meaning. The work is completed, but the full goal and intent of the focus area is not yet achieved.
01:55
A maturity level of two is managed, meaning planning and performance management take place, but not in a standardized way.
02:04
A maturity level of three is defined, meaning enterprise wide standards provide guidance across the enterprise.
02:10
A maturity level of four is quantitative, meaning the enterprises data driven with a quantitative performance improvement.
02:17
A maturity level of five is optimizing, meaning the enterprise is focused on continuous improvement.
02:27
So in this video, we talked about the definition of maturity levels, the six levels and how maturity can be measured
