SWForum.eu MTRL Webinar

Thank you for joining us!

If you want to re-watch it and download the presentation, it is now available.

SWForum.eu organised its first of the series of webinars on the Market & Technology Readiness Level (“MTRL”) framework for analysing a software technology project's maturity in a holistic, straightforward fashion, providing management with a simple yet powerful decision-making tool. The webinar will provide an overview of MTRL analysis and grading, achieving a single-valued result, and guidance for software technology projects embarking on their MTRL self-assessment journey.

The Market & Technology Readiness Level (“MTRL”) framework aims to provide decision-makers with a holistic view of a project’s maturity in a simple way - with a single score. It offers decision-makers a faster way to assess, measure and support software technology projects.

The MTRL methodology resembles the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) developed at SEI to assess and improve the maturity of software development teams, but is focused on enabling an improvement in innovation and competitiveness of EU-funded projects. It provides detailed guidance through the definition of a methodological approach to the improvement of a project’s MTRL, Mentoring, Technology Transfer & Best Practices, with an eye also toward EU policy innovation. An assessment of your MTRL level and consequent improvement will help your software technology projects develop their business concept further into a market-ready product, service or process aligned with your company’s growth strategy
