Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
451’s Project Management Maturity Assessment Methodology provides peace-of-mind when
organisations are developing their project manager competency. We undertake high-level analysis
to create an independent Project Baseline, and for existing projects, we analyse Steering Committee
Minutes and Status Reports. 451 can provide a Mentoring Program tailored to the Project Manager,
to assist with their competency objectives and delivery of projects. Our approach supports a deep
transfer of skills over a short period of time with lower organisational risk. Recent examples
include: a) 451 were engaged by the Department of Main Roads to undertake a strategic assessment
of their Project Management processes, methodology and alignment with organisational direction.
This processes included review of the top 40 strategic projects across the department to assess the
maturity of their existing projects and opportunities for future improvement. 451 delivered a formal
review and recommendations paper which highlighted continuous performance improvement
initiatives across their project portfolio. 451 were subsequently engaged to deliver a key Program of
Work to ensure critical business outcomes for the Program were obtained. b) The Department of
Communities engaged 451 to undertake a major review of project structure and governance. This
assignment included a major strategic review of project management maturity levels as part of the
Queensland Whole-of-Government Prince2 project methodology implementation. The successfully
delivered outcome of this assessment included rollout of a specialised capability development
program to over 50 project managers and executive staff which increased project maturity,
improved methodology use and enhanced governance approaches.

Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
Accenture has skills and experience in the delivery of organisational project management maturity
assessment and related roadmap development, re-structuring and change management services,
within large and complex Australian Government agencies.
A key element of our services is Accenture’s own methodology ICT project management which
includes an inventory of skills, roles, processes and related capabilities which we believe are needed
to provide a mature ICT project management capability. This method, (part of the Accenture
Delivery Methods™) focuses on the delivery of complex projects through the balancing of the
completing challenges of Scope, Quality, Effort, Risk and Timing, (SQERT).
Some examples include:
a. NSW Information Management Transformation – Accenture is partnering with NSW Health to
improve the organisation’s ICT management capabilities. The first phase of this program involved
a 90-day diagnostic and planning phase to:
(i) assess current ICT operations
(ii) Define the operating model and capabilities ICT requires to achieve its objectives, and
(iii) Develop an implementation roadmap for the Transformation Program
b. Child Support Agency – Accenture was asked to review CSA’s project to separate its ICT
services from the ATO (who had traditionally provided this capability). We worked with the CSA
CIO, project manager and key stakeholders to assess CSA’s readiness to progress with the project
and ultimately become self-provisioning of ICT services. This work included a number of
assessments including the scope (ie, did it cover everything it should) of the project, the strategy to
create a CSA ICT capability, and the proposed schedule and project team capabilities.

All consultants are individual members of the Project Management Institute
Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
As Registered Consultants, Adaptive Frameworks have staff who can advise on the self-assessment
tools for maturity assessments and/or the most appropriate independent assessment method. We
normally recommend the initial assessment be conducted independently to establish a baseline
against which improvements may be measured. Incremental assessments can be done internally
with fresh external ones being recommended to confirm an increase in the organisations level of
project management maturity.
For organisations using PRINCE2 there is a specialist subset of the P3M3 Maturity assessment
P2MM which Adaptive Frameworks is licensed to administer. This allows organisations that
deliver internal projects to identity their strengths, areas for improvement and build an action plan
Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment Category
Version 43, August 2012
to improve their effectiveness in the use of PRINCE2. This will lead to PRINCE2 being embedded
within the organisation, helping to deliver the full benefits of using a structured project management
method.
Recently we have conducted organisation-wide maturity assessments for Landgate in WA and
assisted them develop an improvement plan. We have performed project management maturity
assessment for CGL Information Services and Corporate Information Services of the Department of
Infrastructure. In addition, Adaptive Frameworks has provided advice to organisations such as
LaTrobe University and International Power on how to use existing tools such as P3M3, gap
analysis and interviews to establish an accurate assessment of their current maturity level and
generate a plans to effect gradual improvements.

were asked to assess the Program, Portfolio and Project Management processes. We utilised a

Company Accreditation (Optional)
Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
Booz & Company uses an integrated ICT Operating model framework (with seven key capabilities)
to assess the project management maturity of an agency. Specifically relevant is the Project
Delivery capability.
In assessing maturity, Booz & Company considers how projects are prioritised and managed end-toend with a focus on delivering the required business outcomes on schedule and within budget. Also
assessed is the level of seamless handover from build to operations, and appropriate governance that
delivers value to the organisation and builds confidence in the ICT team.
At a detailed level, this could include - the engagement model between ICT and business, the
appropriate mix of delivery models (in-house, out-source, off-shore; centralised versus decentralised), whether the project management environment supports innovation, the ICT
organisation and ICT project delivery performance. Maturity and support of any internally followed
software development lifecycles and alignment with industry accepted best practice standards like
Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment Category
Version 43, August 2012
CMMI, CobiT, and ITIL are also assessed. It will also consider risk - how should capability risk be
balanced/offset with delivery risk.
Two recent client examples:
1) For one of the largest Australian Federal Government agencies, Booz & Company developed an
ICT strategy that included assessing the ICT organisation’s maturity in project delivery– this is now
key input to help the ICT organisation transform itself toward a best in class deliverer of ICT
services in support of its business outcomes and vision.
2) For an Australian Federal Government agency, Booz & Company was the strategic adviser for
the design of an intelligence capability. Booz & Company further assessed whether the agency had
the project management delivery maturity.

Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
We achieve results for our clients through a four-phased approach:
The P3M Maturity Assessment begins by assessing the current organisational capability and
maturity level. Using the maturity model P3M3, and the latest academic research, we determine the
client’s desired outcomes, and target areas in which changes should be focused to optimise value;
concentrating on areas known to be problematic thus having the greatest potential for improvement.
The target level of maturity varies based on specific goals, strategies, resource capabilities, scope,
and needs.
The Improvement Plan is derived to implement specific recommendations via a sequenced roadmap
with milestones for improvement activities. The plan covers those activities that build and maintain
a programme and project infrastructure of effective approaches and management practices. The plan
also addresses change enablers that will help overcome any cultural barriers.
Ongoing guidance and implementation support is provided to quickly deploy the improvement
recommendations.
P3M Maturity Re-assessment is a key element of our approach in order to confirm tangible benefits
have been achieved. Goal conducts an abbreviated follow-up maturity assessment and compares the
newer findings with the baseline maturity level. New and/or supplemental recommendations are
provided to reflect current business priorities and areas of focus for further progress.
Goal’s consultants used this framework to determine performance levels and avenues for
improvement in the Waikato District Health Board in NZ. The Goal Group has undertaken P3M3
evaluations for State Government Departments in Victoria, for the Attorney-General's Department,
for the Department of Defence, and for several Universities and not-for-profit organisations.

practice project and programme management. To meet this requirement ILX engaged the client’s
change teams in developing frameworks based on best practice methodologies (PRINCE2® and

learning generated from the organisation. Our methods and skills leverage from PRINCE2, MSP,
PMBoK, Capability Maturity Model, ITIL, COBIT and Balanced Scorecard. Many of our

Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
Whether establishing, reviewing or supplementing an existing capability, Information Professionals
can ensure that your overall delivery capability is understood and enables you to progress in
maturity and improve performance on a sustainable basis. Our capability assessment encompasses
all major methodologies for assessing organisational project delivery maturity including CMMI,
P3M3, and OPM3. As part of our engagement with Brisbane City Council, organisational maturity
assessments were made across a number of areas. While this was not a formal assessment, the
maturity assessments were used to both define existing practices and methods, and also to define
maturity pathways in obtaining a Centre of Excellence in project delivery. CMMi, P3M3 and PPfM
from the UK, were used in these assessments, and considerations made at a project, programme and
portfolio level as part of the assessment, and in defining maturity and improvements pathways for
the ongoing development of the organisation. In 2006, Information Professionals was asked to
provide a review of the execution of a multi-stage project rollout within Corptech. This was the first
such review and was to be followed by the ongoing improvement in organisational performance to
support multiple ongoing projects and releases. The method used was PRINCE2 with some MSP
elements. As such, both these methods were used in the review, along with P3M3, as a guide to the
maturity of that organisation. This provided the context on project performance (and therefore
project methodology assessment) and organisation wide performance (and organisational maturity).

Organisational Maturity Review
The challenge of linking organisational strategy to successful project delivery is one faced by even
the most progressive of organisations, and there is no "one size fits all" remedy.
That's why ITPM has applied the following standards to develop a world class Organisational
Maturity Review (OMR).
- OPM3: Organisational Project Management Maturity Model v1 2003 (owned by the Project
Management Institute).
- PMMM: PRINCE2 Maturity Model v2005 (owned by the Office of Government Commerce).
- Portfolio, Programme and Project Management Maturity Model (P3M3) v1.0, 2006 (owned by the
Office of Government Commerce).
- PMO: The Australian Institute of Project Management's Project Managed Organisation Award
The ITPM OMR comprises six streams:
1. Portfolio and Program Management
Infrastructure.
4. Organisational Improvement.
2. Project Management Methodology.
6. Knowledge Management.
5. Organisational Leadership and Innovation.
3. Project Governance.
The OMR Assessment is delivered online (or blended) allowing key staff to easily rank
organizational capability in the above areas.
Following completion, a summary report will be produced that analyses strengths and weaknesses
to enable improvement planning.
The benefits of matching against internationally accepted best practice include:
- Deliver a benchmark for improvement and results
- Set realistic targets for improvement
- Measure progress towards enhanced capability
- Strategic Objectives become Organisational Results
Recent client engagements include:

Company Accreditation (Optional)
We control the delivery of services (including Risk management) through the application of our
Client Service Delivery Model (CSDM). The CSDM itself and the organisational responsibilities
for its effective operation are detailed in JA Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 200-6, an integral
part of our ISO9001:2000 certified Management System (first certified by Lloyd’s Register in June
1999 and continuously certified since then). All system SOPs, associated forms and templates are
available to all employees. Documentation currency is controlled through all posted versions taking
precedence over any ‘uncontrolled when printed’ versions.
The CSDM is an overarching SOP and hence separate SOPs are not developed for individual
activities, rather appropriate plans are developed where particular levels of detail are required. For
example, Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) activities on software being provided to
a client’s project are conducted under the control of the CSDM and in accordance with the
applicable standard as identified in the IV&V plans developed for the activity.

Pcubed has extensive experience in Australian Government assessing project management maturity
using tools such as P3M3®, OPM3, and some proprietary tools developed before these standards
were available. (Pcubed is on the AGIMO panel for P3M3™ assessments). The value of these
assessments does not lie in the score, but as a foundation for a capability improvement roadmap.
Pcubed understands capability improvement is not easy to achieve.
Pcubed’s unique proposition in this area is to leverage hard-won lessons from many organisations
around the globe, to structure an achieveable P3 improvement roadmap, tailored to the agency, and
addressing the risks and typical areas of resistance with deploying such initiatives:
•
Rather than focusing on the functional capabilities of project workers, the assessment and
roadmap looks at addressing the qualitative aspects of your organisation’s project, program and
portfolio management effectiveness toward a set of activities that address route-cause issues.
•
Pcubed will bring our practical experience to help with executing the roadmap also if
required.
Pcubed capability improvement roadmaps are very detailed and typically identify more than 50
discrete work-packages over an extended timeframe in areas as diverse as governance, tools,
business change, process development, and training to achieve the required improvement.
Pcubed’s assessments use a range of survey techniques including; facilitated groups, one-on-one
interviews, evidence-based reviews and distributed electronically (e-survey). The sampling is
designed to remove optimism bias.
Pcubed has successfully delivered Project Management Maturity Assessment services to Dept
Health and Ageing, Department of Defence (several sites), Cadbury’s, Smorgon Steel, Invensys and
several other corporates.

Long-term solutions address permanent PMO maturity efforts that will result in long-term value to
the organisation. Over the long-term, we usually recommend a four-phase approach.
Phase 1 – Establish the Business Case for a PMO, including baseline against a Project Management
Maturity Model, to identify the current positioning of project management and aid in planning
future development. P3M3 provides a framework for identifying and prioritising those changes
which will yield the greatest impact. It helps set expectations as to what is required in what
sequence and in what timescale.
Phase 2 – Commence with Short-Term Initiatives and Short-Term wins
Phase 3 – Rollout and Implementation with Long-Term Solutions
Phase 4 - Support, Coach, Mentor and Improve: involves: PMO operates and supports organisation;
PMO refines project activities, involvement of the PMO in projects is expanded; training under the

Providence consistently provides greater Value for Money. This value is reflected not only in our
record of delivering on time, reducing or mitigating delivery and solution risk and exceeding client
expectations, but also in our comparatively low consulting prices.

The Providence Team has significant experience in the provision of high-end consulting services in
regards to supporting current project management practices, analysing the level of organisation
effectiveness and advising on such. In order to generate the desired business outcome, the
organisations Program/Project management must be sufficiently mature to ensure the optimum
business outcome is achieved. Providence encourages the early identification of issues, so as to
allow for corrective actions to be undertaken in order to minimise the business impact.
The Providence team has a robust understanding and practical experience in applying applicable
industry standards and methodologies (i.e. CMMI, P3M3, OPM3 and PMBoK).
Providence is currently providing Independent Project Management Assurance to the Australian
Taxation Office (ATO’s) ICT Outsourcing Program (valued at over $1Billion). Providence has
completed an initial analysis of the maturity of the Program and Project Management in place. The
findings of this review, has resulted in Providence delivering a roadmap to the ATO that provides
detail on improvements and enhancements that can be made to the current Program’s Project
Management.

Additionally, Providence has just completed providing project management maturity consulting
services to CSIRO for their recent Business Enabling Technology Replacement (BETR) Program.
Providence was responsible for re-establishing Program Management and governance
arrangements. This included assessing the current maturity of the Program and Project management
after a significant milestone and recommending enhancements which could occur. The results of the
assessment led to Providence developing a new Project Management Plan, establishing a
Management Team and governance and communications processes.

Company Background
RNC is an Australian specialist project and program management company that has been
successfully operating for over 13 years. With a mix of permanent and contract staff, the company
is presently serving in excess of 29 customers and has over 70 project and program managers in the
field. Headquartered in Sydney, RNC has personnel located in every major Australian capital and
operates in international markets in accordance with client needs. RNC was founded in 1999 by
Diane Dromgold. After many years of delivering projects and programs with Federal Government,
KPMG and other top tier organisations, Diane noticed a disturbing trend surrounding project and
program management disciplines. Far too much focus was on reporting, documentation and project
GANNT charts instead of delivering an actual result. Diane founded RNC – a “Really Nice
Company” – to enable her customers to focus on what makes projects and programs really matter –
a successful outcome. We totally understand what it takes – to work with and collaborate with
others who possess the aptitude and the attitude to succeed – the “x” factor of project and program
managers. Since then, Diane and the RNC team have made it their primary goal to deliver success
on the client’s terms over

Organisations that are delivering successful projects are by default at the top of the capability curve.
We can show you how to achieve that.
RNC is familiar with and can work with any approach and method to assess an organisation’s
capability and maturity. Most consultancies offering assessment services provide a text book
approach to increasing maturity. RNC has seen little evidence increasing maturity actually increases
success. Rather it tends to increase compliance to method and process and provides for forensic
defensibility of failure.
RNC differs from others as we prefer to work with our clients to improve actual project and overall
program success and there are some keys to achieving that in addition to process validation and
governance verification.
RailCorp (NSW) wanted an organisation wide project and program governance strategy, process
and procedure leading them towards CMM5.
RNC developed it, tested it and implemented it.
This organisational strategy is now seen as leading edge by NSW Treasury.

people are empowered to identify and promote innovation and process improvement opportunities.
Synergy’s MD (Susanne Moore) was a sitting member of the sub-committee that authored AS8015-2005: Corporate Governance of ICTand currently sits on AS sub-committee for IT-030-04
ICT Governance of ICT Contracts. Ms Moore was also the founding member of the Queensland
branch of PMI, has presented papers at AIPM symposiums and was involved in discussions
regarding the introduction of ITIL into Australia.
Synergy has not specifically sought accreditation to various industry methodologies such as
PRINCE2, CMMI, P3M3, ITIL etc as we believe that these frameworks only define the start point
for establishing the relevant core competencies within an organisation and do not address many of
the people skills so essential to enabling organisational capability. Notwithstanding, our people are
very experienced and our own methodology (Integrity Management) is substantial. We not only
know the mainstream methodologies and frameworks such as PRINCE2 and PMBOK in substantial
detail, we have higher level business and people skills that ensure these methodologies actually
facilitate successful execution.
Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
Synergy’s Applied Project Management™ framework incorporates the most appropriate use of
structured project lifecycle processes and artifacts, effective project governance, experience of
project managers (including change management skills) and relationship building capabilities when
developing a project management framework for clients.
Synergy can also assess an organisation’s maturity based on CMMI and use of PMBOK derived
standards for artifacts and processes. We can provide a framework for assessing and grading the
capabilities of project managers/team leaders/administrators based on skills and experience matrices
which we have developed and use internally for Synergy consultants and clients. These matrices
include strong emphasis on change skills, people management skills and emotional attributes of
each person. Synergy uses the outcome of these individual assessments to establish a development
plan for each person. This can include identification of key personal attributes for mentoring (eg
dealing with organisational politics, stakeholders, disruptive team members), as well as project
management mechanical skills such as PMBOK/PRINCE2 processes.
Relevant Examples:
For Newcastle University, Synergy provided an assessment of the project management maturity
based upon the CMMI definitions and the PMBOK framework. This incorporated use of a project
risk assessment matrix and Synergy’s project manager competency framework for assessing and
developing an overall improvement plan.
Sydney Water Corporation - Water Modeling Program – Synergy undertook an assessment of the
project management practices across this very large Program and implemented a series of
improvement initiatives to uplift the skills and project framework for the Program.

This review included an assessment for compliance to PRINCE2, as well as an assessment of
understanding and practical application of the knowledge areas identified by PMBOK. The
outcome of this review enabled the program to mature their project management capability, gain
greater control over planning, scheduling and costs control, and provide a program view of
performance to allow more effective communication and management reporting.
Terra Firma was engaged by ANL to design and implement a Project Management Office
Framework. The need was to ensure consistent delivery of projects across ANL's IT Program to
time, cost and quality. Terra Firma conducted an assessment of existing project management
maturity within ANL and then agreed detailed requirements for 'the ANL Way', followed by
development of Program and Project Management framework and documentation. Terra Firma
designed the process to integrate with an online time recording and reporting tool and delivered
training and mentoring to key ANL staff in the new framework and provided post-implementation
support.

Our global ICT Practice has 750 consultants and brings together business insight and ICT to
achieve extraordinary impact. In the past five years, BCG has undertaken over 1,300 ICT projects

Organisational Project Management Maturity Assessment
The maturity assessment of project management practices is a component in the ‘Transformation’
focus area of BCG’s global ICT practice and a key activity of many of our ICT projects. While we
are skilled at applying traditional assessment tools, such as CMMi, BCG is also a steering patron
for the Innovation Value Institute (IVI), a consortium of leading players (including Intel, Microsoft,
SAP, Chevron, BP and others) developing a new capability model for managing ICT for business
value, called IT-CMF. The aim of this new capability model is to build on existing models and
establish a global industry standard for ICT management. BCG’s deep involvement in this initiative
stems from our comprehensive understanding of value creation opportunities through technology,
existing industry standards and their application in optimising ICT delivery.
Thus, we provide our clients with unique capabilities to assess project management maturity,
identify gaps and improve an organisation’s capability in this area.
