Role of project maturity and organizational culture on project success

Despite the common expectation that organizational project management maturity (PMM) improves project management performance, current research offers little to support this argument.A survey-based research is conducted to study the relationship between current and preferred organizational cultural orientation and project success.This study investigates the relationship between maturity levels on eight Knowledge Areas of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and perceived organizational performance.The survey conducted with project professionals and engineers from 75 U.S. organizations reveals a significant relationship between project maturity level and organizational performance.The study also shows that there is a great opportunity to improve the project management practices of manufacturing as well as service organizations.
