Advantages of process improvement frameworks
1. Provides a means of measuring the state of a process and a structured approach to introducing process improvements.
2. Useful as a way of building on the experience of others in process improvement.
Disadvantages of process improvement frameworks
1. Like any measurement system, there is a tendency to introduce improvements to improve the measured rating rather than concentrate on improvements that meet real business goals.
2. Expensive and bureaucratic to operate. Not suitable for agile approaches.
