The roadmap P3O is a model to deliveryour change initiativesmore effective and efficient. If projects and programsare the villages and cities,the P3O model isconnecting these, providinga structure (the roads)delivering the rightinformation and knowledgein every place and at eachlevel.
Plant some seeds… It could start with just one office/department orperson supporting a project or programcollecting the best practices, templates, toolsand (resource) information relevant for eachproject when you would start one. An effective way to include others and addingvalue to at first portfolio/project managers isusing their (informal) network meetings withinyour organisation It is a pragmatic Bottom Up approach.
Check the environment Use the P3O model to identify your environment.Which functions and services are available, bywhom and where. Look at the big picture,however start with small steps. Do project/program/portfolio managers anddecision makers get the right information?When, how? Is it accurate. Is it what theyrequire? From P3O perspective you will also analyze theinformation flow and whether the timing of eachstep is logically when you look at e.g. whenBoard meetings take place.
Take time to grow… Can I use P3O if I don’t want to buildthis structure from strategicperspective? Yes. In practice the P3O model starts‘as is’ and as an initiative by someonewho sees value in using the model.This is not always ‘top down’. When benefits of the adjustments ofthe existing P3O model are visible andaknowledged other departments andtop level might become interested inusing it. The organic way of using theP3O model.
