About Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®)

P3O Introduction

What is P3O ?

Portfolio, programme and project offices (P3O) is a professional certification that trains individuals and organizations to set up and maintain support for change initiatives of the organizations. It provides a framework for the design of structures to support an organization’s portfolio, programme and project offices. The P3O is a guidance that enables organizations to build effective support structures by influencing the following key factors: the management team, anticipated outcomes and delivery of efficient portfolios, programmes, and project management.

The certification course equips candidates in the P3O guidance which brings together a set of tools, techniques, principles, processes, and practices that enable portfolio, programme and project management through the establishment of appropriate support structures.

P3O History

The history of P3O can be traced to 2008 when the P3O guidance was founded by the UK Government’s  Office of Government Commerce (OGC) to help organizations build support structures for the management of their portfolios, programmes, and projects. The P3O guidance helps organizations to align their portfolios, programmes, and projects with the business objectives.

In 2013, the P3O guidance was updated to focus on the management offices at a smaller level and provides information on how these portfolio, programme and project offices can be implemented.

    Business outcomes and benefits- Identification and achievement of business objectives for portfolio, programme and project management.

P3O Exam Process

The P3O exam process begins with a successful registration for the P3O certification examination. After that, candidates are advised to pay attention to the exam sitting process, and the structure of the examination so as to acquaint themselves with the process and reduce exam apprehension. It is expected from the candidates that apart from the classroom training, they spend some time studying by themselves as a means of exam preparation.

Continuous credential requirement for P30

The P3O Foundation certification requires no re-registration. But the Practitioner course requires a re-registration exam within 3-5 years following the original certification.

P3O Training

P30 Training is an instructor-led platform designed to educate individuals who desire to be P30 certified on the essence of the P30 Concept and Methodology and how it can be applied to real-life situations.

The training is not only designed for those individuals who want to take the P30 certification exams, but also for those individuals who desire to have the knowledge. At Harrybaker Training Institute, our training is not structured to prepare for exams alone, but more importantly towards students having a working knowledge of the P30 concepts to the point of them teaching it to others and applying it to real life issues within organizations where necessary.

As said earlier, the P30 Training is coordinated by a professional P30 trainer with several years of experience acquired both locally in Nigeria and internationally in the UK. He utilizes his wealth of experience to impart knowledge and also guide candidates towards being successful at the certification exams.

At Harrybaker Training Institute, we conduct our training in a very serene and conducive environment. We believe the learning process will be more effective if done in a learning-friendly classroom like ours. This is one of our success strategies that has prevented us from recording any failure since inception.

Individuals intending to register for this training should note that it does not have any special requirements for qualification, unlike the certification exams that may require the fulfillment of some eligibility criteria.
