Chapter 14: OPM assessment

Ralf Müller, Nathalie Drouin and Shankar Sankaran


This chapter outlines a way to assess the implementation of the OPM model in organizations. The assessment is applied to 20 organizations in Europe and Asia to identify their implementation patterns. The results allow us to start theorizing on OPM implementations. The chapter starts by discussing some of the conceptual questions around OPM assessment and then develops a data collection approach and tool. This is applied to a wide variety of organizations. We show how we analysed the data and the implementation patterns we found, and draw conclusions from the findings. The latter include implementation patterns, as well as cultural differences.
