Organizational Process Definition + IPPD (OPD) Process Area

A Process Management process area at Maturity Level 3. The purpose of Organizational Process Definition + IPPD (OPD) is to establish and maintain a usable set of organizational process assets and work environment standards. For IPPD, Organizational Process Definition + IPPD also covers the establishment of organizational rules and guidelines that enable conducting work using integrated teams.
Organizational process assets enable consistent process performance across the organization and provide a basis for cumulative, long-term benefits to the organization.
The organization’s process asset library is a collection of items maintained by the organization for use by the people and projects of the organization. This collection of items includes descriptions of processes and process elements, descriptions of lifecycle models, process tailoring guidelines, process-related documentation, and data. The organization’s process asset library supports organizational learning and process improvement by allowing the sharing of best practices and lessons learned across the organization.
The organization’s set of standard processes is tailored by projects to create their defined processes. The other organizational process assets are used to support tailoring as well as the implementation of the defined processes. The work environment standards are used to guide creation of project work environments.
