P2M3 – Prado Project Management Maturity Model

Benefits from Determining Your Project Management Maturity

Measuring an organization’s maturity in project management is accomplished by applying a PM maturity model to each major category of projects within the organization. It is meaningless to measure PM maturity for the organization as a whole without reference to the type or category of projects that exist within the organization. For example, one company that is highly mature in managing engineering/procurement/construction facilities projects is often extremely low in maturity in managing its new product or information systems projects.

The benefits of determining your PM maturity by project category are:

  • Benchmarking your company or agency against your competitors, and
  • Developing a realistic plan of action to improve your project, program, and portfolio management capabilities to increase your rate of successful projects and your overall competitiveness.
