Octant maturity model.

The Octant Maturity Model (OMM) is based on the process maturity framework that evolved into the Software Engineering Institute’s (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) and the Business Development Capability Maturity Model (BD-CMM).

This model enables organizations to understand their current level of maturity and highlight areas that give them the most value and performance improvement in the short and long terms. The model also provides direction to business development, bid, capture and proposal development, and information technology organizations seeking to evolve their strategic business practices.
