The purpose of Organizational Innovation and Deployment (OID) is to select and deploy incremental and innovative improvements that measurably improve the organization’s processes and technologies. The improvements support the organization’s quality and process-performance objectives as derived from the organization’s business objectives.
A Process Management Process Area at Maturity Level 5.
Quality and process-performance objectives that this process area might address include the following:
- Improved product quality (e.g., functionality, performance).
- Increased productivity.
- Decreased cycle time.
- Greater customer and end-user satisfaction.
- Shorter development or production time to change functionality or, add new features, or adapt to new technologies.
- Reduce delivery time.
- Reduce time to adapt to new technologies and business needs.

The expected benefits added by the process and technology improvements are weighed against the cost and impact to the organization. Change and stability must be balanced carefully. Change that is too great or too rapid can overwhelm the organization, destroying its investment in organizational learning represented by organizational process assets. Rigid stability can result in stagnation, allowing the changing business environment to erode the organization’s business position.
