Maturity Assessments

PMLG created the first Enterprise Project Management Maturity Assessment (EPMMA) in 1998. The EPMMA provides and accurate and detailed assessment of an organizations project, program and portfolio management maturity, identifying gaps, quick wins and opportunities for rapid improvement. Our assessment consists of a combination of interviews, observations, documentation review and observation.

A typical EPMMA approach:

  • Documentation and process review and gap analysis
  • Participants answer web based EPMMA assessment
  • Review of the EPMMA questionnaire results
  • Interviews of project personnel, sponsors and stakeholders
  • Calculation of the project management maturity level
  • Preparation of the draft report of findings and recommendations
  • Identification of quick wins
  • Creation of the road map for rapid maturation
  • Presentation of the final report

Organizations are evaluated based on a 1 to 4 level of project management maturity. The more mature the organization, the more consistently project, program and portfolio management best practices are utilized across the organization:

  • 1.0 to 1.9: Immature: Few, if any processes and best practices are available. No consistency in usage.
  • 2.0 to 2.9: Basic: Some processes are available and utilized inconsistently across the organization. Project success depends on who is assigned to lead the project and not on a culture of excellence.
  • 3.0 to 3.9: Growth: Best practices are available across the organization with a high level of consistent usage. The infrastructure is in place to support project, program and portfolio management.
  • 4.0: Mature: Strategic execution excellence. Few controls are needed. Project, program and portfolio management is performed consistently from organization to organization.
