P3O® Implementation

Consultancy overview

Leading-edge organizations are starting to realize the growing importance of good project and programme management practices as a critical success factor in their business. They are recognizing the need for a more formal process to initiate, approve and manage the projects in a portfolio. Appropriate support for Project and Programme Managers is also part of this.

The creation of a Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices® (P3O®) nearly always accompanies this recognition. Establishing and maintaining a P3O® model requires significant investment both staff time and capital resources. Organizations make this investment because the benefits greatly outweigh the costs. These rewards include:
Improvement of resource management
Shorter time to market (TTM)
Better ability to meet internal and external customer needs
Fewer project failures

Without an overall change management infrastructure and methodology, an organization will not use its resources wisely. Project Managers will likely be assigned to projects which are either too complex or which require less qualified resources. Ineffective sharing of resources among multiple projects will result in both overloaded and under-utilised employees. Either situation builds resentment among Project Managers, their teams and peers.

An ineffective infrastructure also leads to high change management failure rates. One of the most significant reasons a project fails is its inability to meet ever-changing customer needs. An effective P3O® model ensures internal and external customers remain meaningfully involved over the entire life cycle of the project so that the project continues to meet their expectations and needs.

A P3O® model can also reduce the cost of change management by standardizing common processes such as project approval, reporting and risk assessment, and can ease the administrative burden on Project Managers, giving them more time to focus on achieving project success.

A P3O® model also guides the development of individual and team skills and competencies through appropriate training and mentoring. Ineffective teams do not have the problem solving skills needed to deal with the external challenges they face. Nor can team members interact well with each other to resolve internal conflicts or disagreements. If individuals and teams lack the skills and competencies needed to work together effectively, longer development times and higher development costs will be the result.

Implementing and maintaining a P3O® model is a big step. We offer a methodology aimed at minimising the time and cost incurred in establishing and maintaining a P3O® model and improving change management practices.
