This event aims addresses P3O® which brings together a set of principles, processes
and techniques to enable effective portfolio, programme and project management.
The purpose of P3O is to provide universally applicable guidance that will enable
individuals and organisations to successfully establish, develop and maintain appropriate
business support structures that will enable informed senior management decisions and
the successful delivery of business outcomes and benefits.
The objectives of this course are two-fold: primarily to allow delegates to demonstrate that
they can manage or work in a P3O®, but also to gain the knowledge necessary to deliver
a “best-in-class” support structure for change within an organisation; this is demonstrated
specifically by preparing delegates to pass both the Foundation and Practitioner exams.
This event will “bring Project Management to life” by facilitating the teaching of theory
combined with practical exercises and case studies that have been built with a wide range
of example organisations in mind.
