Current PMI Standards Projects

As the project management profession evolves, we continue to expand and update our library of standards.

PMI Standards Meetings

We develop our standards through a volunteer consensus process that includes committee meetings as part of ANSI compliance. View upcoming meetings.

The Standard for Organizational Project Management (OPM)

For more information, please contact Karl Best, PMI standards specialist, at Karl.Best@pmi.org.

This new standard will provide guidance to organizations seeking to implement project management to manage projects, programs, and portfolios in accordance with organizational practices and to achieve organizational objectives. The standard will also provide guidance on the development of organizational methodologies, i.e. project management practices that are tailored to fit an organization’s structure, culture, and practices.

The standard for OPM will be a revision and enhancement of Implementing Organizational Project Management: A Practice Guide published in 2014. We are responding to the results of a survey conducted after publication of the practice guide that showed a high level of interest in an expanded version and acceptance of the approach presented by the guide.

Publication of this new standard is expected in Q2 2018
