P3M3 Quick Reference Card

Many organizations have invested in setting up a PMO, implemented methods and frameworks like PRINCE2, MSP and MoP, and organized training to qualify staff. But sometimes they still don’t see the return on their investment. Some projects or programmes delivered well and others are at risk or complete disasters and the can’t answer the question why?

Organizations that are not mature can still deliver outstanding results but at the same time other projects could be a complete failure. The successes are probably due to individual competences and what will happen when these people will leave the organization? The methods and frameworks are probably not embedded into the way the organization functions. A maturity model will help you to understand your current maturity level and highlights those areas where performance improvements will give the most value in the short and long terms. There are several maturity models:

  • PMI: Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3)
  • CO: Portfolio, Programme, Project Management Maturity Model (P3M3)
  • CO: PRINCE2 Maturity Model (P2M3), subset of P3M3: only Project Maturity Model to level 3 only
  • SEI: Capability Maturity Model (CMMi)
  • ITSMF: IT Service Management Capability Maturity Model (ITSM-CMM), aligned to ITIL

In this blog post I show you a quick reference card of the P3M3 model, in a next one I will go into the coming version of the OPM3 model from PMI. To download: P3M3 (QRC, 130301) v1.0
