P3O® Training - United Kingdom

P3O®, an abbreviation for Portfolio, Programme, and Project Office, is a structural recommendation that encourages the development of an overarching ‘office’ entity to oversee portfolios, which makes informed decisions on whether or not to continue with a project and the formulaic processes they should adhere to.

P3O® Training Information

What is P3O®?

P3O®, devised by the Office of Government Commerce, is based upon the principle of utilising linked resources to ensure and maintain business support structures that elevate business value. P3O® aligns project management principles, methods, and techniques to facilitate organisational change, through developing an underpinning support structure.

 

Creating a platform that logical and decisive decisions can be made, the P3O® framework acts as a guide for establishing a structure that emphasises accountability, transparency, tailorability, and functionality. P3O® certifications are signifiers of an individual’s professional proficiency regarding management, ability to prioritise, and unify the business planning phase with business objectives. 

 

Whilst elevating return on investment through aligning strategic drivers with achievement, the P3O® framework ensures that projects and programmes are managed simultaneously and conjointly, rather than as separate functions of an organisation, through the formation of an overarching ‘office’. This office encourages the support to beneficial projects and programmes, and determines whether dysfunctional projects/programmes should be jettisoned - with a central foci on elevating business value and working within the realms of a business’s objectives.

 

Offices determine such business value, through measuring projects and programmes against set criteria, including: project type, strategic fit, net present value, cost, customer satisfaction, resources, and the risk of delivery - such information informs the order of prioritisation and whether a project should get the seal of approval from senior responsible owners and stakeholders. In essence, the project office sets the standards for an organisation’s project management operations.

 

The existence of a portfolio office allows senior managers and owners to have an overarching panoramic overview of their portfolio operations, from which they can make informed decisions; whilst the P3O® model itself provides a guideline for balancing out portfolios and developing business cases. The requirement for a P3O® and comprehensive portfolio management becomes more apparent and necessary the larger an organisation grows, due to the complex constituents of each specific project and programme.

 

Hence, our P3O® certifications are intended for senior owners, project and programme managers, and office contributors, and have a central focus on enhancing managerial competencies required to make operational decisions regarding portfolios, programmes, and projects. All of our P3O® training courses are accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of the governing body AXELOS.

P3O® certifications have different expiry information depending on the qualification type; a P3O® Foundation certification will never expire and is eternally valid, a P3O® Practitioner certification has an expiry date of 5 years - within this time period candidates will be able to refer to themselves as a “P3O® Registered Practitioner”, and a P3O® Re-registration course should be sat every 5 years to maintain registered status for a further cycle.
Yes, our P3O® courses include the respective P3O® Foundation and/or Practitioner exam.
The Foundation exam is multiple choice and the Practitioner exam is assessed through an objective exam, which is comprised of extensive multiple-choice questions.
The Foundation exam is 60 minutes and the P3O® Practitioner exam is 150 minutes. The P3O® Practitioner Re-registration exam is 30 minutes.
Classroom based learning is available across the world in a range of luxury venues - enabling you to learn without travelling. The P3O® courses can be undertaken midweek, at residential events, and solely on weekends too - optimising the learning potential of these courses and tailoring your learning to your needs.
