INTRODUCING…The Revolutionary Strategic Project Management
Maturity Model (SPM3)
This is a very advanced topic, and
was one of just four presentations (out of 140!) selected at the 2007 PMI Global Congress for an encore presentation. It offers
a new and different perspective on the concept of project management maturity, and is intended to stretch
the envelope of project management. Essentially, it takes the fundamental concept of PM maturity and bumps it up to the
organizational or corporate level, proposing an approach for evaluating how mature a company is with respect to how it addresses
project management from a strategic perspective.

The Strategic Project Management Maturity Model: The Next Generation!
Typically offered to organizations where The Strategic Project Management Maturity has already been presented, this
presentation examines the prescriptive component of strategic project management maturity. In other words,
it answers a critical question: "Once an organization has diagnosed their deficiencies, what can it do to address those
deficiencies?" In this session, each of the 10 "strategic dimensions" that comprised the
original model will be briefly reviewed. However, the main focus of the presentation is to provide specific recommendations
regarding the steps that an organization can take to increase their level of strategic project management maturity.
Attendees will receive a valuable tool in the form of a takeaway that captures these recommendations, thereby enabling
organizations to develop a solid organizational improvement plan, relative to the practice of strategic project management.

Calculating the Value of Project Management: How
Can You Do It?
Why Should You Need To?
Provides detail and insight on three of the more
noteworthy (if not popular) research-based approaches for calculating or describing the value of project management which
have surfaced over the past several years. Then, in a thought-provoking and highly interactive conclusion, uses the audience
to explore a question that we probably should have started asking ourselves some time ago -- after nearly 50 years of formalized
existence, why is there still a need to justify project management at all?
(Enlightening, thought-provoking, and highly participative)
