How to use The Project Management Maturity on Agile? OPM3 or do we need another Maturity Model on Agile?

I'm still yet to see OPM3 used in an organization, but that is in Australia. I'm sure it's more widespread in the US.

You have to use CMM models. OPM is a model that has not consistence in my personal opinion no matter I was part of the group of reviewers including the last version.

Isn't CMM focused on software/systems only or are you referring to some CMM other than SEI's?

Elizeu - I'm not a fan of "off-the-shelf" maturity models as they rarely take context and organizational culture into consideration. I always prefer to start with understanding what senior leadership is trying to achieve and why and then design an improvement program to meet those objectives.

Elizeu,

I suggest you search for conversation on OPM3 here. They explain a lot on what it is with OPM3 that make it difficult to use.

CMMI is focus on software, I understand it is not made for Agile but can be use.

Is it the organisation or a department you try to evaluate?

It is the organization.

The use of CMM models is beyond software. Those models have been adopted from other industries including OPM is based on those maturity models. Beyond that, the first thing is to understand what maturity mean. That is the key. When you undestand that you can use any thing that helps you to evaluate maturity.

Good topic! Certainly, the maturity in organizational management projects can be defined as the degree to which an organization practice the organizational management of projects.

So, my understand is - Maturity Models are prototypes used to measure, monitor and improve the capacity development processes.
