Data Capability Maturity Assessment Quick-Start Guide

Notes to guide you on how to use the Data Capability Maturity Assessment.

Step One – Preparation

Every organisation is unique, and it’s possible to hone some aspects of the online assessment tools. Therefore before the tools are shared with the people who will use them, it’s worthwhile spending a little time reviewing their content to ensure that they are optimised for achieving the best results.

It’s also helpful to define some simple ground-rules regarding how the assessment will be conducted. For instance, agreeing what the minimum size of the assessment dataset will be.

Step Two – Stakeholder Engagement

The assessment process starts by inviting participation from two groups of people.

1 – Senior people with knowledge in your business’s strategy and goals. These people will complete the target data capability assessment, to define how important each different set of data capabilities is to the future achievement of your business’s goals.

2 – Anyone with a well-informed perspective on how your business works with data today. These people will complete the current data capability assessment, to define the how strongly your business’s data capabilities are performing today.

Commence the assessment process by inviting people from these two stakeholder groups to participate in the assessment. This is best achieved by emailing an appropriate message containing a link to the relevant online assessment. The links to each assessment are below:
