P3O® Foundation in English

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
This course provides you with knowledge of the approaches, guidance and practical tools to establish an effective support, assurance and strategic planning function in an organisation based on the "Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices - P3O" best practice guidance. The course will enable you to define a support framework and recognise your organisation's P3O maturity level.
• Confirm the different approaches organisations use to manage change – through Portfolio, Programme, Project and Risk Management
• Understand the relationship between Business as Usual and Business change and how they help realise strategic objectives
• Know the high level ‘model’ of support, assurance and governance arrangements and the factors to consider when sizing an ‘office’
• Understand how an organisation’s P3O maturity will affect the implementation or improvement of P3O deployment
• Understand the best practice view of the support and assurance activities of P3Os and how they can extract value from business change
• Prepare and take the P3O Foundation exam
Participating in this course will enable you to define strategies and actions to address the common questions posed by business leaders, managers, operational and change delivery staff: “are we making the right changes?”, “are we getting business benefits from the changes?” and “are we executing changes in the right way and well?”
This course is relevant if you have corporate or senior management responsibility over your organisation’s portfolio of change and seek to improve current costly or ineffective approaches to Programme and Project Management. You are involved in corporate strategy/business planning, portfolio management, senior business management, Portfolio/Programme/Project Office management; or have a functional role within Programmes/Project offices.
Approximately three weeks before course start, you will receive the P3O e-book and a pre-course workbook including exercises. The pre-course workbook consists of exercises and recommended reading in the e-book. We recommend that you spend between 15 and 20 hours going through the pre-course workbook prior to your participation in the course.
The course is held as an intensive 3-day course without overnight accommodation. The course runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please note that evening work will be required.As participant you are expected and encouraged to contribute actively during the course activities which will alternate between practical exercises and theoretical reviews.

After the course you can book your exam by using your exam voucher. It is a pre-requisite that you have participated in the course before you can take the exam. As Peak Consulting Group does not have exam rooms available, it is not possible to take the exam at the end of the course. 
The Foundation exam consists of a multiple choice test of 75 questions. 5 of these are trial questions which do not count in you result. In order to pass the exam, you must have 35 correct answers out of the remaining 70.

PRINCE2 Foundation

Kurset gav en rigtig god indflyvning til PRINCE2-universet, der klædte os bedre på til at strukturere projekter af forskellig karakter. Jeg har fået en langt bedre forståelse for, hvordan gode projekter kan styres. Ofte er man så fokuseret på at nå i mål med projekterne, at man glemmer at tænke mere holistisk fra start. Underviseren har rigtig dygtigt vist, hvorfor det er en forudsætning for at lykkes med gode projekter, at projekter planlægges.

I can say with confidence that my expectations were met and I am happy with my decision to take the course. In terms of key takeaways from the course, for me this would be the fact that PRINCE2® can be tailored to suit any project, which will help me in managing all my future projects more efficiently. The facilitation of the course was perfectly executed by Peak Consulting Group and the overall course experience was just great!

Kurset levede bestemt op til mine forventninger. I løbet af de 3 dage fik vi et godt indblik i det basale i PRINCE2 metode, samt havde tid til at diskutere, hvordan dette kunne sættes i kontekst ift. erfaringer eller udfordringer vi som deltagere stod overfor. Der var bestemt ingen tvivl om, hvor meget erfaring underviseren har med projektledelse og brugen af PRINCE2, hvilket betød at man altid følte sig i meget trygge hænder.

Kursusdagene var som forventet intense og alle trådene fra det forberedte selvstudie blev bundet godt sammen i et samlet overblik.

Dagene var supergodt orkestreret af underviseren, der balancerede fint mellem teori, øvelser og egne erfaringer. Og hun var rigtig god til at fremhæve de væsentlige pointer.

PRINCE2 frameworket har skærpet min forståelse for hvilke overvejelser, man bør gøre sig om temaer og processer undervejs i et projektforløb, og jeg har allerede brugt min nye viden til at få adresseret nogle emner i et igangværende projekt.

PRINCE2 Agile® Practitioner

Kurset gav mig evnen og redskaberne til at vurdere, i hvor høj grad projektorganisationen og projektet var egnet og parat til at arbejde agilt, og hvilke risici der følger med ved et agilt mindset.

Jeg fik en konkret værktøjskasse med metoder og principper at tage med hjem og anvende i dagligdagen som projektleder.  Det er en kæmpe hjælp i hverdagen når der skal brobygges imellem ledelsens forventninger og målsætninger med projektteamet arbejdsmetoder og performance.

Det er altid skønt at lære noget nyt, og sidste uge var ingen undtagelse! Her stod programmet på tre dages intensivt kursus, ledet af Peak Consulting Group og afsluttet med en PRINCE2®-certificering.

Nu glæder jeg mig til at bruge min nye indsigt i projektledelsens Best Practice til at gøre en forskel i mit frivillige virke hos AXIS, og ikke mindst skabe værdi for min kommende arbejdsgiver!

De sidste par dage har været intensive, lærerige og spændende med Peak Consulting Group, hvor Jesper Vilstrup har sørget for inspirerende undervisning. Jeg er glad for, at jeg nu er certificeret i Prince2 Foundation – projektledelse og glæder mig til at anvende mine nye tilegnede metoder i den virkelige verden.
