To Assess Your Organization’s Project Management Maturity

Review the description for each component in each of the ten knowledge areas (see Chapters 3 through 12) and assess the organization’s level of maturity. Check the appropriate boxes in the survey below.

■ Achievement of a given maturity level by an organization is cumulative— that is, for each succeeding PMMM level, the assumption is that all criteria for the preceding levels for that component are being (or have been) fulfilled. To assess an organization at Level 3 in scope definition, for example, it must have in place all the processes described in Levels 1, 2, and 3 of scope definition. The organization may have some of the processes in place in Level 4, but if it does not have all of those processes in place, it is at Level 3-

■ After completing the assessment of the knowledge area components, determine the maturity level in each knowledge area. To do that, review the assessments of the knowledge area components, and pick the lowest level at which you’ve assessed maturity in that knowledge area. For example, if the component self-assessment is as shown in Figure A.l, then the maturity level in project scope management is Level 2 (because you are at Level 2 maturity in scope management planning.) In other words, the overall maturity level for the component cannot be higher than the lowest individual component score.

■ To assess the overall organizational maturity level, follow a similar method. Review the maturity assessment results for each of the ten knowledge areas. The lowest level assessed is the organizational maturity level.
