P3M3® – Features and Benefits


What we aim to do is support you in building a mature programme, project and portfolio management capability. Our service will provide you with a framework to benchmark your current performance and to plan for improvements when managing and delivering change.

P3M3® provides three distinct maturity models, that can be used together or separately, to focus on specific areas of your business or, more generally, to help you assess the relationship between your portfolios, programmes and projects.

This maturity is described by a five-level framework, wherein each level identifies how well your organisation has embedded portfolio, programme and project management processes:

Level 1: Awareness of process

Level 2: Repeatable process

Level 3: Defined process

Level 4: Managed process

Level 5: Optimised process

At the end of the the assessment we will deliver a focused report that will help you understand your current levels of capability against an agreed set of parameters.

You will also receive a roadmap, which depending on the type and depth of assessment undertaken, will pinpoint the areas areas that need to be addressed in your organisation to ensure more consistent and effective project, programme and/or portfolio performance into the future.

  • Creates a reliable PPM (portfolio, programme and project management) capability baseline against which improvements in PPM capability performance can be objectively measured

  • Reduces costs and increases benefits delivery in PPM

P3M3® has helped organisations worldwide to reduce costs through increased efficiency and process improvements. For example, Transport for London (TfL) estimates that they have achieved almost £1 billion in savings over five years by increasing its P3M3® maturity from level one (2007) to almost level four (2012).
