Shout Out to RPM

Here's a shout out to Richard Pearce-Moses for bringing NSLA's Digital Preservation Environment Maturity Matrix (Nov 2013) to my attention.  Members of the library community will find the list of questions relating to the functional components of the open archival information system reference model (ISO 14721) useful. 

In a webinar that I did yesterday on long-term digital preservation I applied the management adage "You can't manage what you don't measure."  The value of capability maturity models like DPCMM and NSLA is to make visible the indicators that can tell us where we are and how to improve in the key performance areas that matter most.

It's a quick read:  http://www.nsla.org.au/sites/www.nsla.org.au/files/publications/NSLA.DigPres_Environment_Maturity_Matrix.pdf
