Data Maturity

Carruthers and Jackson bespoke, industry recognised Data Maturity model provides organisations with a framework to fully explore the core dimensions associated with data. The Model underpins our approach to data maturity and data strategy development, providing an all encompassing approach, that is accessible to technical and non-technical stakeholders.

The model is based on four core areas, each of which contributes to data maturity:

PURPOSE - we know where we are going

PEOPLE - we have inspired and capable people doing the right thing

METHOD - everybody undestands what they need to do and how

TOOLS - everyone has what they need to do their jobs effectively

The Carruthers and Jackson Data Maturity Assessment covers every aspect of an organisation, proven to underpin good data maturity. It develops engagement across all areas of a business to provide a deep understanding of where improvements can be applied to a business’s data landscape to both reduce business risk and provide tangible business value.

Our structured data maturity model focusses on 12 dimensions and their impact on data within any organisation.

We use this evidence-based approach to conduct a series of interactive workshops with stakeholders from across an organisation.  The consolidated output will clearly articulate the current and desired states of data maturity.  Combining deep business understanding with our insights, experience, and research, enables us together, to determine the focus for the business and the way ahead for data improvement, yielding increased performance and decreased risk to the business.

The Carruthers and Jackson unique and structured approach provides the framework for a business to continue to assess its capability as improvements are delivered.

We recommend that an organisation repeats the data maturity assessment periodically, usually every 12 –18 months, allowing the business to demonstrate the positive progress made and ensure future planning reflects business priorities.


“The Maturity Assessment enabled us to think differently and more holistically about data and how this is managed across the organisation. This method enabled us to really understand the various pain points across our data journeys, identifying where we can make the biggest difference. It also provided us with a platform for buy-in within the organisation.”
