P3O Foundation

Those wishing to find guidance or advice on setting up or running an effective delivery support office in alignment with OGC's Best Practice guidance.

A P3O model provides a decision enabling/delivery support structure for all change within an organisation. This may be provided through a permanent or temparary office (or set of interlinked offices). These "offices" come under a variety of names eg Portfolio Office, Centre of Excellence, Enterprise or Corporate Programme Office.

OGC's PRINCE2, Managing Successful Programmes, and Management of Risk all touch on the need to provide adequate support structures for these best practices. P3O comes from the same family and provides guidance for organisations or individuals who wish to set up or run an effective delivery support office.
