Specific and Generic Goals
Specific goals and generic goals are required model components. These components must be achieved by an organization’s planned and implemented processes. Required components are essential to rating the achievement of a process area. Goal achievement (or satisfaction) is used in appraisals as the basis upon which process area satisfaction and organizational maturity are
determined. Only the statement of the specific or
generic goal is a required model component. The title of a specific or generic goal and any notes associated with the goal are considered informative model components.
