About OPM3

Just as individuals benefit from achieving personal maturity, organizations can now benefit from achieving organizational project management maturity. OPM3® is a standard unlike other contemporary maturity models. The web site and book combination offers a comprehensive approach helping organizations to assess and develop their ability to deliver projects successfully, consistently and predictably.

OPM3 offers the key to organizational project management maturity with three interlocking elements:

  • KNOWLEDGE element
  • ASSESSMENT element
  • IMPROVEMENT element

The KNOWLEDGE element, found on the web site and in the accompanying OPM3 Knowledge Foundation book, lets organizations uncover hundreds of Best Practices and shows them how to use the information available in OPM3. The ASSESSMENT element is an interactive database tool accessible on the web site that lets organizations evaluate their current situation and identify their areas in need of improvement. If an organization decides to embark on the path to higher maturity, the IMPROVEMENT element, also accessible on the web site as a database, will help them map out the steps needed to achieve their goals.

Just as no project management practitioner should be without A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), no organization can afford to be without this valuable resource. 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, which desire to improve their organizational project management maturity, OPM3 provides guidance to help organizations plan projects to improve their maturity while conserving resources.
