Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®) is the OGC’s (Office of Government Commerce) guidance for establishing, developing and maintaining appropriate business support structures that will allow improved senior management decision making, better identification and realisation of business outcomes and benefits, and improve the chances of successful programme and project delivery.

P3O is aligned to the current MSP®, PRINCE2®, and M_o_R® guidance and has been developed to enhance the support advice referred to in that guidance.

P3O is not a prescriptive method. It does however provide advice for those organisations that wish to create (or re-energise) effective support structures that can provide a focal point for defining a balanced portfolio of change and ensure a consistent approach to the delivery of programmes and projects.

The P3O Practitioner course comprises two days of trainer led instruction, and practical exercises, culminating in the Practitioner examination. The aim of the course is to revise the structure and detail of the P3O advice and to prepare delegates for the P3O Practitioner Certificate examination by undertaking questions from a sample examination paper.

The course fee includes the examination fee for the Practitioner examinations, but delegates are expected to have already attended the Foundation level course and therefore already have a copy of the OGC P3O manual. The course is intensive and delegates are advised to undertake some revision work prior to attending the course.
