Data Maturity Framework

Want to know if your organization is ready to start a data-driven social impact project? See where you are in our data maturity framework and how to improve your organizational, tech, and data readiness.

The Data Maturity Framework has three content areas:

  • Problem Definition
  • Data and Technology Readiness
  • Organizational Readiness

The Data Maturity Framework consists of:

  • A questionnaire and survey to assess readiness
  • Data and Technology Readiness Matrix
  • Organizational Readiness Matrix

The framework materials can be downloaded here, and you can complete our survey here. When we collect enough responses from enough organizations, we’ll launch an aggregate benchmarking report around the state of data in non-profits and government organizations. We ask that each problem be entered as a separate entry (rather than multiple problems from one organization entered in the same response).
