P3O®

P3O® Foundation & Practitioner

What is it about?

P3O supports and is aligned to PRINCE2®, MSP®, M_o_R® and MoP®. It brings together a set of principles, processes and techniques to help the project management office (PMO) provide a balanced portfolio of change and ensure consistent delivery of projects and programmes across the business.

It provides a centre of excellence for the organization which includes the setting of standards. It is a flexible approach to supporting, controlling and assuring change initiatives because “one-size does not fit all” and your version of a P3O must be matched to your organizations situation and needs.

Delegates receive the following:

  • Accredited course material
  • P3O® Handbook
  • Sample questions and Case Studies
  • Training by one of our accredited PeopleCert facilitators.
  • An internationally accredited e-certificate upon successful completion of the exam.

The course is delivered with a blend of classroom training interventions and practical syndicate and individual sessions. Evening work is also required during the course.

What can I expect?

This project management course follows the syllabus set down by the APM Group, including:

  • P3O best practice is supported by the core guidance publication and a two-tier certification scheme, Foundation and Practitioner.
  • The purpose of the Foundation certification is to confirm that a candidate has the knowledge and understanding of the P3O guidance to interact effectively with, or act as an informed member of, an office within a P3O model. Foundation is a pre-requisite for the Practitioner certificate.
  • The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to affirm that the candidate can design, implement, manage or work within any component office of a P3O model. A successful candidate will have an overall understanding of the elements, roles, functions and tools and techniques deployed in a generalized P3O model.

What’s in it for me?

On completion of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Project, programme and portfolio environment

  • Roles, processes and documentation used to manage project and programme lifecycle phases
