Business professionals have debated whether or not an organization should strive to ensure that all

its processes are “optimized” according to the Capability Maturity Model.

1) What do you think?

Regardless of your response, what benefits might an organization realize at the

earlier levels? (Remember to clearly state your response and then clearly state

any benefits that might be realized.)

2) Is there a similarity

between the Capability Maturity Model and COSO’s Internal Control Integrated

Framework? How do they differ? Be sure to support your ideas with well

thought ideas.
