P3O® Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices Practitioner Certification 4 days

About this course

P3O is now the established approach in supporting senior management decision-making through the portfolio, its programmes, projects and business as usual. It enables individuals and organisations to establish, develop and maintain appropriate support structures that will assist senior management decision making; identify and realise outcomes and benefits via programmes and projects; deliver programmes and projects within time, cost, quality and other constraints. This Best Management Practice certification is aligned to PRINCE2, MSP and M_o_R .
