Organizational Project Management Maturity Mini-Assessment Workshop
Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 1:00 P.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Delta Ocean Resort, 100 Harbour Rd, Victoria, BC V9A 0G1, Canada
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, and your instructor will be available to have a 1:1 conference call with you to discuss those questions with you prior to the workshop. Then at the workshop you will review your own questions and answers to those questions with the instructor 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 before and 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.
If you buy a ticket and then refer a friend who also purchases a ticket, you’ll get 25% off. Specifically, when you purchase your ticket, you would provide the name(s) of any other person(s) whom you are referring. If someone whom you referred subsequently purchases a ticket, you will receive a refund on your original ticket purchase equal to 25% of the original price you paid for one but no more than one ticket. Refer five friends who all purchase tickets, and join the workshop for free! You will be awarded for either one referral or five referrals (not two, three, four, or more than six referrals), provided your referral buys a ticket. Specifically, if you refer five friends who all purchase tickets you will receive a full refund of your original ticket price (equal to 100% of the original price you paid for one ticket but no more than one ticket). If more than one person refers the same individual, only the person who made the referral first will be credited with the referral.

Workshop Pricing and Discounts
What People Have Said About Your Instructor
*Fees charged for this service pertain exclusively to the option of a one-hour phone call, which the instructor will perform from OPM Experts LLC’s office in Atlanta, Georgia, USA; the in-person workshop and other phone consultations leading up to the workshop are incentives which are provided as a courtesy upon purchase of the post-workshop phone call. As such CDN taxers do not apply. OPM Experts LLC is providing this service for educational purposes only, and the service is not a maturity assessment performed by OPM Experts. PMI’s OPM3 standard is not necessary for this service and will not be provided to participants, as participants will be taught newer proprietary methods used by OPM Experts LLC. Registration is provided on a first-come first-serve basis. Space is limited. OPM Experts LLC reserves the right to cancel the service should minimum attendance requirements not be met. In this case, your ticket price will be refunded in full. All tickets sales are final. You can certainly send another person to take your spot.
