Hi, I appreciate the effort, it's interesting but there should more flexibility in my opinion.
All is relative. Probably in Estonia, to do an outdoor activity, people must wait more time than buying a loaf of bread in Venezuela. Depending on the variable everyone has more difficulties than another, but it's different to divide the world into good and bad. Some criteria should be meet, I agree, but the flexibility and more a matrix of criteria makes sense. The biggest problem in a general concept of rules is to introduce global rules that can kill the diversity. They will help to have standardized and well defined entities and easy to monitor, but also similar and undifferentiated entities. To measure a maturity of a model the best would be to introduce a combination of variables and not only three. It would be good to have, let's say, three different parameters for each areas to have at least 9 different standards as a combination. I think that a more flexible criteria can be a valid support.
