Organisational process assets are entities that can be used to influence the success of a project. Policies, procedures, guidelines, formal and informal plans, templates, lessons learned documents, and even historical information come under the organisational process assets.



They may also include completed schedules, earned value data, and risk data. Any updates to the organisational process assets are handled by the project team members.
