People Capability Maturity Model (PCMM)®

PCMM is an integrated set of best practices that improves performance and key capabilities for organizations that want to improve their critical people management processes.

People Capability Maturity Model®

Empower team members to develop skills that will help the organization succeed.

In today’s hyper-competitive business environment, the only way for organizations to reach their strategic goals is to make the most of their people. To develop people management capabilities, organizations must build teams, develop skills, and manage performance to fuel organizational growth. Without a keen focus on workforce management and professional development, organizations may suffer performance-related setbacks and hamper their growth strategy.

The People Capability Maturity Model® provides guidance for improving the capability of an organization’s workforce. These best practices help identify skill gaps, break down workflow bottlenecks, and empower team members to develop skills that will help the organization succeed.
