What is P3O®?

P3O (Project, Programme and Project Office) is a framework enabling businesses to set up and maintain a support structure for the delivery of change within their organisation. Provided by the global best practice provider AXELOS, P3O links easily with other AXELOS best practice frameworks such as PRINCE2, MSP and M_o_R because its guidance helps to support and maintain each of the areas these frameworks cover. It helps to align these areas of interest with the business’s objectives, ensuring senior management are able to make informed decisions about how these components of the business can fit in with the overall strategy.
