Maturity is also about the capability to conform the process to the right context!

Organizations, their businesses and contexts are multi-dimensional, diverse, and very complex today. Hence, creating homogenous process models for managing them may not always be an optimal solution. Instead, organizations should be able to tailor their processes to the formality level required for the context at hand. In this paper, we claim that the organizational maturity is not only about how organizations are capable to manage their processes. It is also about how capable they are in adapting them to specific contexts and business needs. We also suggest Context-Driven Process Orchestration Method (CoDPOM), based on the concept of practice choreography and process orchestration. The CoDPOM's role is to aid software practitioners in identifying process needs and in recognizing waste which, in turn, would aid them in adapting their software processes to specific contexts, business needs and formality levels.
