P3O® Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices – 2 Levels of Accreditation (AXELOS)
P3O provides universally applicable guidance, including principles, processes and techniques, to successfully establish, develop and maintain appropriate support structures. These structures will facilitate the delivery of business objectives (portfolios), programmes and projects within time, cost, quality and other organisational constraints.
By putting in place an appropriate P3O model, organisations can improve the delivery of business change and optimise investment to a far greater extent than they could by implementing disciplines within individual programmes and projects on their own. The P3O should be capable of delivering services within the organisation’s matrix structure, ensuring that temporary structures such as programmes and projects can coexist with and enhance permanent functions and departments that support business as usual.
