It aims to analyze the influence of organizations internal dynamics on project management maturity, (PMM), assessments and how they can change the assessment results. Specifically, it addresses the impact of internal organizational influences, like organization culture, leadership & leadership hierarchy, and emotional stability on the assessments of organization project management maturity. The methodological research approach for this study was a survey of 129 professionals. These professionals represent both manufacturing and service sectors industries that utilize project management extensively. Data were analyzed using multiple regression models with SPSS data processing results show that organization's internal factors significantly influence project management maturity assessments.
