The Importance of Organizational PMO Maturity
It is widely accepted that a well-designed topology (networked) of PMOs within an organization through their interactions and services they provide, creates a long-lasting impact on an organization’s achievement and sustainment of its strategic objectives.
The growth of an organization through its ability to realize projects in a practicable way is directly linked to the strategically aligned PMO services, offered and delivered across one or more collaborative PMOs with optimized capabilities and capacities to deliver those services.
AIPMO’s PMO Principle Based Maturity Model
The Association of International Project Officers (AIPMO) developed its PMO Maturity Model based around the Strategic PMO Lifecycle framework. This enables maturity assessments to be made and provides development activities as an input to a roadmap towards achieving an external benchmarkable certification based on a concept of ‘maximum potential benefits’ and secondly an internal organizational benchmark based on a concept of ‘maximum potential value’ for one or more PMOs.
Using a number of academically ground models with industry proven concepts AIPMO’s PMO Maturity Model assesses the maturity of one or more PMOs within an organization.
The AIPMO’s PMO maturity model effectively is built around the usage of nine critical checkpoints. These eight key assessment points determine your current maturity levels and deliver detailed recommendations to enable the generation of sustained value from your existing PMO investments going forwards.
