P3O®

Don’t get left behind…

“P3O is universally applicable guidance to help organizations build the necessary support structures that enable the successful delivery of their portfolios of change programmes and projects”.
Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices 2013

As businesses increasingly adapt portfolio, programme and project management, there is an increasing need for an effective infrastructure, namely the programme/project office, to support them.

The need for an effective support structure increases not only with the number of programmes and projects undertaken, but also with the significance placed on these initiatives.

Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®) is the latest best practice guidance from AXELOS addressing this functionality.

The P3O® model provides a decision and delivery support structure for enabling change within an organisation. This may be provided through a single permanent office such as, for example the Portfolio Office, Centre of Excellence, Enterprise or Corporate Programme Office. Alternatively it may be provided through a linked set of offices (portfolio office, programme offices, project offices).
