For example if you decide you are currently at project management level 2: repeatable (you will have documented project management methodologies and a standard project life cycle in place; and you will be involving your project managers in the definition and agreement of these standards). You will now plan to move to level 3: defined. In order to achieve this you will need to carry out the following steps:
- Establish a project office to maintain the standards and documentation and provide an interface to the project mangers.
- Obtain management support and authorisation to enforce compliance with the standards and monitor this through the project office.
- Involve the organisation's project managers in reviewing and improving the standards.
