Benefits of a Maturity Assessment:

P3M3 assists organisations in identifying areas where:

  • duplication of effort could be avoided
  • improved consistency across the organisation can be achieved
  • targeting improvement investments
  • failure and reactive costs could be reduced
  • management control could be improved
  • maintaining the strategic integrity of projects

Why have a P3M3 assessment?

  • provides a benchmark against a standard, not other organisations
  • helps decide what level of capability you need in order to achieve the organisational vision
  • focuses on the organisation maturity not individual people, projects, or programmes which will increase the likelihood of success and avoid waste from unnecessary interventions, poorly delivered projects or delivering the wrong projects.
  • Provides an objective assessment of strengths and weaknesses of the organisation along the maturity path, so even if objectives are not met, the positive progress towards them is still acknowledged as achievements and reflects the value from investments.
  • Justifies further investment in programme and project management infrastructure as measurable improvements can provide evidence of return on investment and help prioritise in corporate spending rounds
  • Enables plans for continual progression which can be developed, implemented and monitored based on the attributes within the model, with targeted improvement areas that provide quick wins and maximise return on investment
