As part of our PMO Trends for 2022, we mentioned that a lot more PMO practitioners were looking for maturity assessments they could pick up and use themselves – rather than going down the route of a P3M3 assessment which involves bringing in a consultancy firm. The P3M3 route can be expensive and take a considerable length of time and committment however there are other ways for the PMO to gain an understanding of where their organisations are in terms of maturity and that’s by offering a Do-It-Yourself option. It’s useful for a PMO to be able to get a sense of how their organisation stacks up against a standard – carry out an assessment and be able to pinpoint some of the areas where decisions and actions need to be made in order to improve maturity. PMOs are also looking at maturity models because by their very nature it provides a link to measures – and gives an insight into how the PMO services are contributing to project success. A PMO maturity assessment would also give insights into what services the PMO should be looking to amend or add both in the long and short term. A Do-It-Yourself PMO assessment enables the PMO to take what might be a gut instinct about what they’re doing is helping the business meet its strategic goals and start to monitor performance more objectively and ultimately have those quantative measures to drive the right behaviours, skills and services forward. In this session we are joined by Adrian Dooley, creator of Praxis Framework, which has a maturity assessment for projects, programmes and portfolios which can be accessed – free of charge – used and the outcomes recorded. It’s called Maturity 360. Alongside Adrian, Eileen will be looking at the PMO side of maturity assessments – why carry them out and how the PMO can use them to improve on their own service offerings for the business. If your PMO is interested in the contribution it makes to the improved maturity of project delivery in your organisation – and of course the improvements in the successful delivery of projects – this session shows how you can do that by doing-it-yourself.
