Martin Rother, management consultant and first in Germany of certified trainer for PRINCE2, examines the latest best practice work of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC). His conclusion: P3O offered innovative approaches and structures, but it is not done with a quick training of staff. Not many refined details of practical use and application of P3O exist although P3O (also known as portfolio, programme and project offices) in the wings and already as one of the most innovative management guidelines in professional circles, it is discussed. In addition to a few announcements to P3O seminars, the providers keep covered. Reason: P3O is complex. But: It offers innovative approaches for the efficient control of project management offices and describes an organization-wide, uniform support structure for the project landscape for the first time.
Martin Rother published magazine, an enterprise-class presentation about the project now exclusively in the leading German-speaking magazine for project management, Best-practice guide P3O. P3O information gap on the leading management level is one of the greatest desiderata in the management the necessary information about the existence and status of projects and other activities to implement the corporate strategies not at the right time for the relevant persons to arrive. With simple words, The level of decision making is not about the existing projects in the picture. P3O laid the foundation stone for closing this gap. P3O represents a best practice guide to the implementation of an infrastructure suitable for the project business in the company. P3O across defined tasks, responsibilities and powers of the project management office (PMO) and offers a practical policy that describes how projects, programs, project portfolios, and the day-to-day operations of a company can be co-ordinated and controlled with high effectiveness. The best-practice policy P3O is therefore the flow of information between day-to-day business, Programmes and projects. Because no valid information, a systematic control is not possible.
