The Project Management Institute’s OPM3 emphasizes the value of organizational project management in the execution of organizational strategies. PMI, with its partner, DNV, has set up a certification program for individuals to conduct OPM3 assessments and to work to identify an OPM3 improvement program using a robust tool, OPM3 Product Suite. Organizations that have conducted these assessments note benefits such as fewer cost and schedule overruns, improved customer and team satisfaction, and a reduction in redundant programs and projects.

We will work with you to scope and tailor this assessment to meet your organization’s unique needs. During the assessment, we will conduct interviews and review your existing portfolio, program, and project management processes, procedures, and guidelines.

We will then transfer the data to you for your later use.
