Maturity Models in Project Management

There are two major points of view for evaluating maturity in a projectized
organization. The first approach evaluates maturity of organization project
management and the second one is dedicated to evaluate a single project. An
organizational model intends to compare capabilities of your organization with a
predefined idealistic organization model and best practices, then at the
result, reveal the areas of weakness and opportunities of your organization. These
models focus on your process and procedures and generally classified your
organization in one of its levels.

A projectise model compare a single project with a model and concludes a
report in alignment with the achievement of project goals. Most of this kind of
models use for evaluating a project in award ceremonies and don’t show the
level of maturity in your organization and route of improvement.
