Organizational Project Management Maturity Mini-Assessment Workshop
Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 2:00 P.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Delta Ocean Resort, 100 Harbour Rd, Victoria, BC V9A 0G1, Canada
Leveraging big data from the cloud, companies are building and using artificial intelligence technologies that outperform their human counterparts. And for the first time, artificial intelligences (AI’s) have begun to create their own children AI's. Companies that are unable to cope with the changing environment by selecting and delivering projects successfully, consistently, and predictably will become obsolete and irrelevant. Fortunately standards can help.
Since the turn of the 21st century when John Schlichter's team established a global standard in Organizational Project Management (a term first coined by John on PMI's behalf), companies have been leveraging standards that combine portfolio, program, and project management to implement their strategies through projects. To do this, companies have assessed and developed their ability to select the right projects and deliver those projects to realize benefits. That typically begins with a maturity assessment that results in a report characterizing current capabilities and recommendations for improvement. By undertaking maturity assessments, executives can improve their ability to select and deliver projects of all kinds, including those that are producing technologies which will eventually themselves select and deliver projects of their own, forever separating the leaders from the followers in the exponential future accelerating toward us.
Are you a project management professional who wants to assess his or her own organization’s ability to implement its strategies through projects and to develop an improvement plan for your organization based on that assessment? If so, come learn how to perform a maturity assessment of your organization’s ability to implement its strategies through projects successfully, consistently, and predictably from the foremost expert in this domain.
Prior to a workshop, you will receive maturity assessment questions to use to assess your own organization. Then at the workshop you will review those questions with the instructor, as well as any answers you have obtained, and consider follow-up actions. For two weeks following the workshop, the instructor will be available to you for a one hour consultation consisting of personalized phone support to address your follow up questions.
Your instructor is John Schlichter, who is the opening keynote speaker for the PMI Victoria Chapter’s Professional Development Conference 2019. John coined the term “Organizational Project Management” or “OPM,” which is the system for implementing the business strategy of an organization through projects. OPM became a global standard published by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and is how companies throughout the world deliver projects valued in billions if not trillions of dollars.
Having created OPM3© (an international standard in project, program, and portfolio management), John founded OPM Experts LLC, a firm delivering OPM solutions and a leading provider of maturity assessment services. Industry classifications: NAICS 541611 Administrative Management and General Management Consulting Services, NAICS 541618 Other Management Consulting, and NAICS 611430 Training. John is a member of the adjunct faculty of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.
Instead of using OPM3, which has not been updated since 2013, John will coach you in the latest maturity assessment questions and techniques that his firm uses for clients today. Fees for full maturity assessments by John’s firm OPM Experts start at $20,000 USD, which is a service they have provided to Harris Corporation, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Panasonic, SAP, T-Mobile, TransLink, Xerox, and many others.
In this workshop, you will learn how to perform a streamlined version of a maturity assessment or a “mini-assessment,” with personalized phone support from the instructor after the workshop. You will learn to characterize your organization’s maturity level and capabilities accurately, how to identify improvement options for increasing its maturity level and capabilities, and how to translate those options into a plan of action.
As part of this offer, you get maturity assessment questions to use on your organization. You get the workshop itself. And you get a 1:1 phone consultation after the workshop. The total price for this package? Pricing information has been withdrawn, as this event has been canceled.
