All project management organisations go through a process of maturity leading up to the stage where they achieve ‘excellence’. During this process, the organisation develops systems and processes that are repetitive in nature and provide a high probability that each project will be a success. This maturity process for a project management team in a large functional organisation goes through five phases as indicated in Figure 4-8;

  1. Embryonic in which the requirements for growth and success are recognised.
  2. Executive management acceptance in which upper management understanding and support are obtained.
  3. Line management acceptance during which functional managers become committed and willingly contribute resources.
  4. Growth during which project management methodologies are adopted, and systems are put into place.
  5. Maturity at which stage project management functions are becoming integrated and skills of team members are becoming more enhanced.
