The idea of a 'maturity scale' is to suggest or recommend a range of best practices, with the implication that individuals or institutions that employ those practices are 'more mature', or in ither words, better. In the current case, Neil Mosley identifies three such practices, the nature of which are defined in the learning design maturity levels and explanations page: "a team of multi-disciplinary professionals (and parity of esteem), means of representing course or programme design that clearly demonstrates the learning journey and progression on the way to achieving learning outcomes, informed by grappling with evidence, research and robust insights." I'm not sure how much of this is measurable (which is what one would expect in a maturity model), I'm not sure how it was validated (ditto), and the whole thing seems to me to be very long, slow and traditional.
