I was previously acquainted with a specific model, which contains levels for different phases of a systems development, ie:

Phase 1: Complete chaos, nothing works Phase 2: Getting stuff to work, but breaks, no process Phase 3: Implement processes to stop things breaking Phase 4: Scale etc..

I think it had an acronym like MMCM or MMCP or such, but can't find it via Googling.
