Project maturity as the way to improve nonprofit organisations - truth or myth?

Anna Marciszewska

Abstract

The notion of project maturity is associated mainly with business entities. However, it seems justified to make these deliberations also concern non-profit organisations that are facing the problem of how to use tools and methods applied in the private sector. Currently, the problem taken on in scientific discussions is the identification of the extent to which skilful use of project-related knowledge in non-profit entities may affect their flexibility in responding to the emerging challenges, the ability to maintain good financial condition or the effectiveness of undertaken activities. According to the author, the project approach allows for achieving results that would be impossible to achieve in any other conditions. The purpose of the article is to assess the project maturity of non-profit organisations in Poland and to demonstrate how this may affect the improvement of their project-related operations. The presented article was created on the basis of the available scientific publications and own research results of the author concerning the project maturity of non-profit organisations in Poland.
