All organisations will benefit from achieving organizational project management maturity. OPM3 is a standard unlike other contemporary maturity models:
OPM3 was developed under the stewardship of PMI by hundreds of volunteers worldwide with a keen interest in advancing the project management profession. The CD-ROM and book combination offers a comprehensive approach helping organizations to assess and develop their ability to deliver projects successfully, consistently and predictably. The package includes customisable templates, best practice process descriptions, questionnaires, methodologies and check lists that allow organisations to assess their current level of 'Organizational Project Management Maturity', identify areas for improvement, develop and implement improvement plans and measure their overall effectiveness.
OPM3 offers the key to organizational project management maturity with three interlocking elements:
The KNOWLEDGE element lets organizations uncover hundreds of Best Practices and shows them how to use the information available in OPM3.
The self ASSESSMENT element is an interactive database tool that lets organizations evaluate their current situation and identify their areas in need of improvement should an organization decided to embark on the path to higher maturity.
The IMPROVEMENT element will help map out the steps needed to achieve their goals.
OPM3 will help organizations align their strategic goals to the successful completion of projects and understand their organizational project management maturity. More importantly, for organizations, that desire to improve their organizational project management maturity, OPM3 provides guidance to help plan projects to improve maturity while conserving resources.
