P3O®: Portfolios, Programme and Project Offices Practitioner
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Around the world, there are many organizations in both the public and private sectors, who recognize that their portfolio, programme and project management is best supported through a delivery support office. PRINCE2®, Successful Programmes (MSP®), Management of Portfolio’s (MOP®) and Management of Risk (M_o_R®) all touch on the need to provide adequate support structures. P3O® provides a single source of information for guidance or advice on setting up or running an effective delivery support office. Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®) is a Best Management Practice certification that brings together a set of principles, processes, and techniques to facilitate effective portfolio, programme and project management through enablement, challenge, and support structures.
P3O Practitioner is aimed at candidates wanting to take an active role in any of the offices described in the P3O model. While it is particularly suited to candidates fulfilling the management, generic or functional roles described in Appendix A of the P3O guide, it will also be relevant others who see the P3O model as a framework for a career path.
A PRINCE2 Foundation certificate is recommended.
This program will be conducted with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentation, discussions, and practical exercise.
The purpose of the P3O® 2013 Foundation course, is that the candidate learns the:
• High-level P3O® model and its component offices
• Differences between Portfolio, Programme and Project Management
• Key functions and services of a P3O®

• Tools and techniques used by a P3O®
• Purpose and major responsibilities of the defined roles

Candidates will have an overall understanding of the elements, roles, functions and tools and techniques deployed in a generalized P3O model. Additional training may be required if the candidate is to take up one of the specialist roles in the P3O organization.
