Thank you for your interest.
When was the last time your organization undertook an important project? If you’re anything like most executives, your answer is probably “we’re doing important projects all the time,” and you probably have many underway.
Have you thought much about the standards used to select and deliver those projects? Probably not.
But do you know why those projects are underway? Of course you do. They are underway to implement your organization’s strategies.
Your projects are creating learning and growth to convert information into a competitive advantage. Or they are creating and manufacturing new products and eliminating gaps, delays, bottlenecks, shortages, or waste. They are meeting customer needs and increasing customer satisfaction by improving quality, price, or availability. They are increasing your organization’s profits or revenue. And those are all fantastic reasons to undertake those projects.
Wouldn’t you say delivering those projects is essential for the business? Yes, you would. Then shouldn’t they be treated that way? What we mean by that is, here you are undertaking important projects, an essential and memorable activity, all while using very unmemorable methods, which begs the question “Do you even know how well those methods are working? Or how to improve them?”
Many of us have spent our entire careers using basic methods for selecting and delivering projects and never gave it much thought to learn what’s best for more complex situations or important projects. As our world becomes more complex, volatile, and uncertain, the basic methods used in the past for selecting and delivering projects are no longer sufficient.
OPM Experts is here for your more important projects. We have the tools you need to get important projects done successfully, consistently, and predicably. Think of us as the way to take your company to the next level. Because when you begin using the right tools, you’re more effective. Ask our clients, like Worley Parsons, Battelle, SAP, Melco Crown, Harris Corporation, Microsoft, or Johnson & Johnson.
As you may know, we originated the Project Management Institute's program to develop the Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3), which is an international standard designed to help organizations improve their ability to implement strategies through projects.
The founder of OPM Experts was the person who first coined the term "Organizational Project Management” as the system for implementing an organization's strategies through projects. He pitched the idea of Organizational Project Management (OPM) and OPM3 to PMI's executive director, who agreed to sponsor the creation of these tools as a PMI standard accredited by ISO.
Then our founder led a team of nearly 800 people across 35 countries for a period of years to develop those tools to make Organizational Project Management capable in organizations of all kinds, including your own.
We were the original architects of OPM3, and we have been helping clients unleash the power of OPM3 continuously since 2002 (longer than any other firm).
We have the tools you need to implement your strategies through important projects successfully, consistently, and predictably.
You're in good company.

A problem and a solution...
Although OPM3 has been a great success in the marketplace and has been used across the world to help organizations improve their ability to implement strategies through projects, it has suffered from being managed by committees that are responsible for maintaining OPM3 as an industry standard.
Bureaucracy and the myopia it engenders have fragmented OPM3. As a result, essential parts of OPM3 are not currently available to new users like you.
And the parts that are available to you will not enable you to increase your organization's maturity level.
Worst of all, PMI's process for updating OPM3 (which has been updated to its 3rd edition) takes years, and there is no way to know when or even if these issues will be resolved.
Fortunately, OPM Experts LLC has a solution. What is that solution? It is "SIMPLE," the "Strategy Implementation Maturity Protocol for Learning Enterprises."
SIMPLE is a vast improvement on OPM3. It fixes significant problems that have remained unaddressed in OPM3 for years.
SIMPLE allows us to infer your OPM3 maturity level and to help your organization achieve the highest level of OPM3 in a fraction of the time typically required by OPM3. This allows us to offer maturity assessments at very low prices and to produce results for you quickly.
An added bonus for clients is that, if you prefer, OPM Experts LLC can perform a maturity assessment of your organization remotely, i.e. by email and telephone. We have done this for many clients on nearly every continent. This accelerates engagements and eliminates expenses.
