3 Relevance of Research 7 standardization bodies to develop additional maturity models for special purposes (ISO’s SPICE in 1998) (Niazi et al. 2005:156). Following the inspiring example of the CMM, other professions have followed and developed their own maturity models. A recent example is the New Product Development (NPD) best-practice framework (Kahn et al. 2006). This framework has been developed on the basis of a framework of the Product Development Management Association (PDMA), the leading professional association of product development managers in the United States of America (Product Development Management Association 2006).
One of the European counterparts of the PDMA, the European Industrial Research Management Association (EIRMA), employs a very similar framework to run their annual benchmarking conference. The maturity model helps identify and suggest successful innovation management practices in a given context. Such maturity models can be applied for large management disciplines, such as innovation management, or more specific fields, such as the management of radical innovations, where another maturity model is under development (Peters and O’Connor 2002).
