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
- 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.
