The Align Framework® is the result of 7 years of development and the experience of undertaking maturity reviews of over 100 organisations, which has shown that the framework is often the obstacle to performance improvement. The foundation for building an effective programme and project management capability is the framework. The complexity is often underestimated and attempts to produce “light” frameworks produce frameworks that do not survive the increasing demands of maturity. Our experience is that the foundations for the long term need to be established from the start.
The Align Framework® is designed to be a self-service PMO, providing role specific guidance for members of programme and project teams in addition to theme guidance tailored for your organisation. Your organisation’s framework site becomes the first port of call for all programmes and projects. Align is specifically designed to give you a P3M3® maturity level 3 compliance framework.
The Align Framework® has been built to address a number of common failings from reviews of organisational performance reviews:
- Incomplete frameworks with inadequate life cycles
- Frameworks that replicate manuals and basic theory but add no value
- Themes, such as risk, that are not connected to the lifecycle or sit in isolation
- Generic role definitions with no application of the responsibilities
- Templates that bear no resemblance to the lifecycle or processes
- Little connection between programme and project management systems
