PMI’s latest foundational standard, The Standard for Organizational Project Management (OPM) (released June 2018) is the missing link needed to “advance an organization’s performance by developing and linking portfolio, program, and project management principles and practices.” OPM is defined as the integration of people, knowledge, and processes, supported by tools across the portfolio, program and project management domains of the organization. Most organizations organically integrate their portfolio, program and project management activities, but this standard provides insight and guidance to developing a more conscious approach based on established and accepted best practices. OPM is a “useful standard for any organization that is seeking to better meet its strategic objectives, and this standard is particularly beneficial for organizations that do not have a unified project management approach.” Come learn more about this integrating standard just release by PMI.

AQN | Quality Principles for Effective Project Management
Effective management of projects is critical to an organization’s overall success, but how can this work be measured and improved? Some organizations have centralized project management efforts by developing a Project Management Office function, but incremental organizational improvement is still a challenge to objectively manage and measure. The Project Management Institute (PMI) developed the Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) to provide organizations a framework “…to advance your organization’s strategic interests through the efficient and successful execution of projects”. In this session, Jane will share her personal experience working with organizations to develop and implement a practical approach using OPM3.
