Using the five key components of the PAMM as foundational elements, the current and future state of an organization’s performance environment can be assessed by comparing existing information and practices against similar “best in class” organizations. Landmark employs a four level maturity matrix (Static, Reactive, Proactive, and Predictive) as shown in the table on the right. These five components can be further dissected into more detailed performance elements and ultimately specific assessment criteria. Each criterion can then be used to provide a comprehensive appraisal of an organization’s “performance landscape”. Using this approach, it is possible to identify the key strengths and potential weaknesses that can either accelerate or conversely disrupt any enterprise wide performance improvement program. From this analysis, it is possible to develop sound recommendations and craft a customized implementation blueprint/roadmap for ensuring long term success in building a sustainable organizational performance culture.
Landmark's Performance Alignment Maturity Model (PAMM) is based on the premise that the adoption of performance modeling and reporting technology serves as a catalyst for both defining and enhancing meaningful business performance content. It also promotes organizational engagement by communicating this content to improve the timeliness and quality of business decisions. As shown in the Figure on the right, the use of performance technology not only enriches the definition and structure of performance content & data (the Performance Content Design & Development Cycle), it strengthens an organization’s attentiveness to the need and importance of accurate performance information for improved decision making (the Performance Learning & Decision Cycle).
