Project Management

P3O® Foundation in English

This course provides you with knowledge of the approaches, guidance and practical tools to establish an effective support, assurance and strategic planning function in an organisation based on the "Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices - P3O" best practice guidance. The course will enable you to define a support framework and recognise your organisation's P3O maturity level.
• Confirm the different approaches organisations use to manage change – through Portfolio, Programme, Project and Risk Management
• Understand the relationship between Business as Usual and Business change and how they help realise strategic objectives
• Know the high level ‘model’ of support, assurance and governance arrangements and the factors to consider when sizing an ‘office’
• Understand how an organisation’s P3O maturity will affect the implementation or improvement of P3O deployment
• Understand the best practice view of the support and assurance activities of P3Os and how they can extract value from business change
• Prepare and take the P3O Foundation exam
Participating in this course will enable you to define strategies and actions to address the common questions posed by business leaders, managers, operational and change delivery staff: “are we making the right changes?”, “are we getting business benefits from the changes?” and “are we executing changes in the right way and well?”
This course is relevant if you have corporate or senior management responsibility over your organisation’s portfolio of change and seek to improve current costly or ineffective approaches to Programme and Project Management. You are involved in corporate strategy/business planning, portfolio management, senior business management, Portfolio/Programme/Project Office management; or have a functional role within Programmes/Project offices.
Approximately three weeks before course start, you will receive the P3O e-book and a pre-course workbook including exercises. The pre-course workbook consists of exercises and recommended reading in the e-book. We recommend that you spend between 15 and 20 hours going through the pre-course workbook prior to your participation in the course.
The course is held as an intensive 3-day course without overnight accommodation. The course runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please note that evening work will be required.As participant you are expected and encouraged to contribute actively during the course activities which will alternate between practical exercises and theoretical reviews.

After the course you can book your exam by using your exam voucher. It is a pre-requisite that you have participated in the course before you can take the exam. As Peak Consulting Group does not have exam rooms available, it is not possible to take the exam at the end of the course.
The Foundation exam consists of a multiple choice test of 75 questions. 5 of these are trial questions which do not count in you result. In order to pass the exam, you must have 35 correct answers out of the remaining 70.
