What is maturity? Essentially, maturity and human governance is about maximizing the value of all of people connected to the organization including its supply chain. The language of maturity enables uniform communication about the hard value of the most important intangibles – people and corporate culture.
Maturity analysis is a new perspective, designed to address a specific gap within economic analysis. As Robert Armstrong, a senior economics correspondent at the Financial Times, says in his recent piece on the VW emissions scandal:
“… I will confess I understand little about how corporate cultures work or how to improve them….I think I understand money pretty well; culture puzzles me. But culture is there and it matters. And if we ignore it, there will be more dieselgates in the future.”
