Organizations can be very used to or not as used to completing projects and programs. This is really dependant on the organizational maturity. This is significant to how good the organization is at making successful changes – and thus also significant to how good an organization is at getting results. An important key to getting results is therefore to work with organizing and competencies within project- and program management.
Peak has different methods for elevating the maturity level in an organization. The first step can be a maturity assessment such as P3M3. This lays the groundwork for the effort for maturing to be tailored to your organization. The assessment gives input into which initiatives you should get started on in relation to which level you are currently on – and which level you want to work towards. The areas that can typically create value on a short-term basis are:
- Clearer organization
- Distinct roles and responsibilities
- Competence boosts with employees and managers
At Peak we like to use best practice as our starting point when working with the maturing of an organization. It can save the organization both time, money and unnecessary experiments. Still, we make a virtue of constructing the effort, so it is tailored to suit the organization’s ambitions and strategic goals.
What are the benefits?
The most important part of your work to become knowledgeable about project and program-work is that you start where it gives you most value. Goal-oriented work with maturity will result in your projects succeeding faster, the teamwork running smoother and you having greater control and overview throughout.
