Kerzner PM Maturity Assessment

How the Kerzner PM Maturity Assessment™ Works

Just like a physical from a doctor you trust, the Kerzner PM Maturity Assessment™ Tool diagnoses the health of project management in your organization. It identifies strategic strengths and weaknesses and then creates a prescriptive action plan for improving the health of your PM efforts. Dr. Harold Kerzner says, "What I have observed in the past five decades is that project management excellence comes from four critical components: effective communications, effective cooperation, effective teamwork and trust.

"With this in mind, Kerzner PM Maturity Assessment™ is significantly more behavioral than quantitative. People manage projects, and methodologies function as supporting tools. You can have the greatest methodology in the world and still not reach a level of maturity because the correct human behavior is not in place. Maturity in project management occurs when people work together correctly. The Kerzner PM Maturity Assessment™ assessment focuses on this - getting people interacting with other people rather than just tools."

Developed by Dr. Harold Kerzner

The assessment framework is based on Dr. Kerzner’s five-level project management maturity model. Several years in development, the Kerzner Maturity Model is the result of real-life application within a number of world-class organizations.
