Transforming teams from "good" to "great"

Maturity Assessment

There are times when something just "isn't quite right" in a team. Our Maturity Assessment offers a fresh perspective on the current team, the systems and processes within it, and options available to optimise future performance.

Commitment

Assessing capability

Peru is committed to helping IT and other Senior Leaders, across all industry sectors, understand the strengths and development opportunities within their teams, set against industry best practice.

Peru will work with the organisation to build a realistic and effective improvement plan by providing an independent analysis and balanced, objective view of the team, its skills, how risk is managed and processes it uses. Based on proven Maturity Assessment techniques, the analysis will help organisations optimise team performance.

Substance

Proven methods; pragmatic processes

A Maturity Assessment covers all aspects of team function, including the business tools, suppliers and customer engagement.  But, when it comes to assessing people, rather than processes or systems, it pays to combine sensitivity with a pragmatic, straightforward approach. Team members will want a 'safe' forum where their views can be heard, as well as a clear understanding of the assessment process even if the outcomes are uncertain until the assessments are complete.

Peru's Maturity Assessment uses proven techniques to provide Team Leaders with:

  • The current situation of the team, its capabilities and performance
  • An understanding of industry and role-specific best practice
  • A clear vision of the future of the Team, based on a realistic view of the organisation's structure and goals and Team capabilities

Outcomes

A sustainable improvement plan

A Peru Maturity Assessment Review will deliver the following:

1. A 'Value Framework' which identifies Team capabilities on a five-point scale and set against eight key measurements:

  1. Strategic alignment
  2. Resources
  3. Commercials
  4. Perception
  5. Risk
  6. Operational Effectiveness
  7. Outcomes Delivered
  8. Flexibility and Innovation

2. A ‘Ways of Working’ Assessment tailored for each team to measure performance. For example, an IT team assessment analyses:

  • IT strategy, planning & financial management
  • Architecture and tools
  • Service portfolio management
  • Project Management
  • Development methods
  • Release Management
  • Monitoring
  • Service management
  • Supplier management
  • Collaboration
  • Culture

3. An objective report offering a wide-ranging, yet detailed assessment of the team, highlighting its current strengths. The report will also provide clear options for team development, where and how strengths can be optimised and recommended areas of improvement for people, processes and systems.
