OPM3's knowledge foundation and implementation of OPM3
Changes in the global economy have required organizations to realize that, in order to thrive, prosper and grow; their organizational strategies must be successfully executed. However the ability to execute ultimately constrains and defines strategic possibilities. At the same time, consensus is growing that project management is a critical organizational capability that assists organizations to successfully implement strategies. In response to this interest in linking organizational strategies with successful, consistent and predicable project outcomes, PMI published the Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3™) in December 2003.OPM3 will help organizations to understand and assess their organizational project management maturity and, if desired, will provide assistance for charting a course toward improvements in organizational project management maturity.The paper provides and describes at a high-level the content of OPM3 including the steps to use OPM3 in an organization.
