NICF- Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®)- Foundation & Practitioner

Overview

According to The Standish Group International, one in five projects meets with failure, while two in five will be delivered not meeting the promised benefits. Though no organisation would start a project planning to fail but the inability to overcome challenges will result in one. These challenges include delays, unexpected issues, budget overruns resulting in end products that fall short of their required features and functions. When you combine these with the increasing complexity of projects; it is apparent that organisations are indeed facing a mammoth task.

The Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O®) model addresses these challenges by providing governance, transparency, delivery support, reusability and traceability in the integrated deployment and implementation of these offices. Organisations that adopt this model shows great improvements in the success rate of their business strategies execution and in achieving programme/project objectives in a cost effective manner.

Through this course, you will learn about the world’s best practices and obtain globally recognised accreditation in portfolio management, programme and project support and assurance.

This course will provide you with an extended theoretical and practical knowledge of P3O® and prepare you for the P3O® Foundation examination and the P3O® Practitioner examination respectively.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn 29.5 PDUs (PM: 23.5, Leadership: 2, Business: 4) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential. Note that for the purpose of PDU reporting by those with PMP® credentials, the PMI REP Provider Number of ISS is “2339”.
