P3O® Foundation

Course overview

In the chaotic world of today many organizations have a complete scala of change initiatives in their portfolio. Furthermore, stand-alone projects and programmes are completed successfully when the organization is prepared to fully focus on these projects and programmes.

However, the portfolio of change often contains so many initiatives that a full focus on all these changes becomes impossible. Because of the large amount of change initiatives there is not always an overall picture and often there is no clear definition of priority concerning all these change initiatives.
As a result projects and programmes frequently suffer damage because certain choices concerning commitment of resources are omitted or taken too late.

P3O® (Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices®) is a model with which a bridge is created between the temporary change initiatives of the organization and the permanent ‘business as usual’ organization, with 3 possible functions:
Support strategic decision-making concerning the portfolio of projects and programmes
Support the delivery of results and benefits by projects and programmes
Set up a central source of expertise for successful project and programme management

With this training course you will become acquainted with the P3O® model. An answer will be given to the question why a P3O® model is useful and an approach will be defined to implement or re-energize a P3O® model.
The elements of the P3O® model will become clear and the different roles, tools and techniques come up for discussion.
This training course conforms to the syllabus for those delegates wishing to gain P3O® Foundation level certification.
