KMMM comprises two Models

Development Model

The development model defines five maturity levels and provides information how to make the next reasonable step in Knowledge Management development. The maturity levels were inspired by the levels of CMM from the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and have been thematically worked out for Knowlege Management matters.


Analysis Model

The analysis model helps to take account of all important aspects of Knowledge Management and reveals which topics should be developed in future. These 64 topics are arranged in eight key areas, which are partly based on the enablers of the EFQM Model for Business Excellence and have also been extended or differentiated to represent KM specific aspects.
