P3O® Practitioner Course (1 day)

Interested in becoming P3O® certified?

Overview

Portfolio, Programme, and Project Offices (P3O®) provides a decision-enabling/delivery support structure for all change within an organisation. The purpose of P3O® guidance is to provide universally applicable guidance that will enable individuals and organisations to successfully establish, develop, and maintain appropriate business support structures.

There are two levels of certification available, Foundation and Practitioner.

The Foundation course is suitable for members of offices within a P3O model or anyone who needs to understand the terminology and concepts underpinning P3O and those wishing to pursue higher level certifications.

The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm whether attendees have achieved sufficient knowledge and understanding of the P3O guidance to 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 generalised P3O model.
