Capability Maturity Model. A model developed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie Mellon University that describes how organizations develop software. The model identifies five levels or steps organizations go through as they become more sophisticated in their use of process.. Level 1 organizations aren't effective in using processes. Level 5 organizations are mature in their use of process and routinely manage and improve processes. Most organizations fall between Level 2 and 3. We argue that the same general concepts that apply to software organizations apply to any organization that attempts to organize around business processes. ( www.sei.cmu.edu/cmm)
