Maturity Assessment Programme (MAP)

The Maturity Assessment Programme (MAP) is a diagnostic tool modelled on the operational clauses of ISO 44001 (previously BS 11000).

It is typically completed by a number of participants occupying different vertical roles within the organisation’s hierarchy. It establishes an organisation’s readiness to engage in collaborative working relationships/partnering arrangements.

Answers questions like:

  • “Where do we stand with regard to Collaborative Working?”
  • “What should be our area of focus for improvement?”
  • “How can we engage with more suppliers, more appropriately and more constructively?”
  • “Where should we focus (improvement) attention across our supply chain?”
  • “What competencies and behaviours do I need to develop in my team and my suppliers?”


  • Web-based managed service.
  • Automated participant invitations, reminders and progress tracking.
  • Optional anonymity control.
  • Capture of parameter scoring and related issues.
  • Reports updated in real-time.

Additional options:

  • In-depth gap analysis between organisations, departments, functional teams, etc.
  • Capture suggested improvement actions.
  • Export comments and suggested improvement actions to action management tool.
  • Categorise relationships for category-based reporting.
  • Categorise participants under ‘roles’, for role-based reporting.

How it works:

  • Multiple self-assessments of one organisation (or department, project, team, etc).
  • Typically 5-20 participants (scalable for as many as needed).
  • Can include opinions from customer and supplier organisations.
  • Aim to repeat every 12 months.
