Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3OŽ) Translations
P3O is best practice guidance from AXELOS. It was published in November 2008 and is accompanied by a qualification scheme.
This core guidance describes why, when and how to use portfolio, programme and project Offices (P3O) models. It describes what a P3O is, defining the two key types of P3O, and goes on to answer the question posed by Senior Management: "Why have P3Os and what value-add do they bring to the organisation?" It also includes business cases, funding models for set-up and ongoing costs and performance measures.
