The recently released OPM3 (Organizational Project
Management Maturity Model) from the Project Management Institute (PMI) has set
the new standard for assessment instruments and improvement techniques for
organizations looking to adopt and implement Project Management Best Practices.
PMI states that “Organizational
project management is the systematic management of projects, programs, and
portfolios to achieve an organization's strategic goals. “Organization” can
apply to an entire company or organization as well as to specific business
units, functional groups, departments or sub-groups within the whole.
Organizational project management focuses on the clear correlation between an
organization’s capabilities in the management of projects, programs and
portfolios and its effectiveness in implementing strategy, which directly
impacts financial results. Seen in this light, successful organizational project
management can be a decisive strategic advantage in a competitive economy. The
degree to which an organization practices this type of project management is
referred to as its organizational project management maturity.
Simply put, OPM3
provides a mechanism to advance your organization's strategic interests through
the efficient and successful execution of projects.”

organization with both the self assessment and the comprehensive assessment. As

The comprehensive assessment phase evaluates your
organization against over 600 best practices, 3000 supporting capabilities and
4000 relationships between capabilities. Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) are
used to qualitatively and quantitatively measure successful adoption. This
knowledge base was developed by PMI during a six year comprehensive review
involving 800 practitioners in 45 countries.
