Laboratory Functions and Stakeholders on the Maturity Scale

Jim Coogan, Siemens Industry, Inc.

Several laboratory performance functions in continuous performance tool have been fully developed by committees and are now suitable for testing. The presentation will cover a few stakeholders, describing the scale to rate their maturity with example content for best practices. How to use the pull-down scores for each content cell will be described, and a preview of example output will show the finish line for the hands-on session.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how generic maturity levels are specifically applied to example stakeholders.
  • Understand how SLAMM can be applied to many laboratory functions.
  • Learn about SLAMM scores, heat map, stakeholder maturity web, and development web.
  • Understand how SLAMM can be used as a benchmark, then revisited to assess progress.
