About The Course

The Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®) guidance, aligned to the other Global Best Practice guidances including PRINCE2®, MSP®, and M_o_R®, brings together in one place a set of principles, processes and techniques to help you deliver effective portfolio, programme and project management through enablement, challenge and support structures.

The accredited P3O® Foundation e-learning course provides you with a full understanding of the Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O) method, its’ key principles and terminology and, therefore, fully prepares you for the foundation examination.
