P3O (Portfolio, Programme & Project Offices) is a standard to help organizations develop a model to assist in the tracking, assurance and support of the organization’s portfolio of projects and programmes. Our Foundation training illustrates models, functions, roles and responsibilities for establishing and managing a P3O model. The training will explore and explain how a P3O can add value through the establishment of information flows designed to support senior management decision making. The aim of the course is to provide students a strong understanding of the elements that a P3O model is founded on and explore the justification, creation and management of a P3O model.
