Project Management Maturity Level
As an organisation enhances its project management capability, it is important for the organisation to assess where it is at any given moment in its journey. Building on the Computer Management Maturity Model work completed at the Software Engineering Institute, the Project Management Institute and others have developed an Organisational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) to help an organisation assess where it is, to improve its project management capability, and to identify key steps it can take to move ahead. It is important to review the OPM3 so that students understand that a convenient methodology or framework exists for helping them assess where an organisation is with respect to its project management capability.
Through numerous applications of OPM3, the PMI has developed a series of best practices which show what approaches, methodologies, or practices organisations have implemented to increase their organisation’s maturity level. These best practices show how an organisation can improve its project management maturity or capability level.
For this week, complete the following Discussion Questions:
- Analyse the key best practices which you believe the organisation can adopt to improve its project management maturity level.
- Examine and describe the key elements of change management which you would use during an initiative to raise the project maturity level of an organisation.
