P3O® Training

What is P3O?

P3O® is an acronym of Portfolio Programme and Project Offices. Having an effective P3O® model will provide an organisation with decision enabling information as well as structures for delivering change. The aim of P3O® is to provide a single point of reference for setting up and running effective delivery support in any kind of organisation in an environment aligned with best practice approaches.

P3O® Foundation Certificate - 3 Days

Overview

Project, Programme and Portfolio Office (P3O) is one of the core elements in the Best Management Practice suite of guidance. A P3O model provides a decision enabling/delivery support structure for all change within an organisation. This may be provided through a single permanent office which may exist under several different names e.g. Portfolio Office, Centre of Excellence, Enterprise or Corporate Programme Office, Project Management Office or Project Support. It may otherwise be provided through a linked set of offices (portfolio office, programme offices, project offices), both permanent (enabling / supporting business objectives and consistency of delivery) and temporary (enabling / supporting specific programmes and projects), providing a mix of central and localised services.
