Brief: Have I coined a phrase.....?

The concept of cultural maturity has come up in a number of modules on the Master of Information Leadership. There appears to be a plethora of maturity models ever since Crosby (1979), and most aren't that different). So I'd like to say we should recognise this orgy of identikit model construction with a new IT acronym (my proposal seems to have caught on with the MIL students, anyway)...

YAMM = Yet Another Maturity Model

Looked on Google, and it drew a blank so I'm claiming it. Feel free to use it  - but say it was me....:-)

Fame at last? Time will tell...
