P3.express® Project Management

P3.express is a minimalist, practical project management system that is used in many different types of projects all over the world. The system is designed to be easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to teach.

P3.express is supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and available under a Creative Commons license.

Why P3.express?

Despite the existence of fundamental systems such as PRINCE2® and the PMBOK® Guide, most projects are run intuitively, without the help of a structured project management system. This is the case because the fundamental standards, while invaluable, are too complex for normal projects. Imagine all the people who use Excel. What happens if you replace Excel with a programming language? Most people won’t be able to use it, and they will be left without a tool, even though a programming language is more capable than Excel. The fundamental project management systems are all like programming languages, and what people need most in projects is something like Excel. P3.express is that simple tool that most people can use.

There’s no basic level of certification or Foundation level, because P3.express is designed to be easy to learn. There will not be an intermediate level for learning the terminology without being able to use the system.

P3.express is designed to implement. It is, above all, a practical project management system.

That’s why P3.express is:

·        Easy to learn

·        Easy to use

·        Easy to teach

How does P3.express work?

P3.express uses a cyclical system to make the activities simpler and more regular. There are monthly, weekly, and daily cycles, each of which focused on one aspect of managerial activities. Each of the 33 activities has a simple description with a clear purpose and output; those include interesting activities such as peer-reviews and various types of focused communication. In addition to the cycles, there’s a project initiation activity group run at the beginning, and a project closure group at the end.

Finally, there’s a post-project management group: a cycle run after the project is finished, to evaluate the benefits. Besides the process, there are 4 documents in P3.express, containing a simple form of all information required for a minimalist, yet effective way of managing projects. One of those documents is a relatively unique concept that doesn’t have an exact equivalent in other systems and supports specific activities required in modern projects. P3.express uses a simple process, as shown in the diagram. This process consists of 33 management activities in 7 groups.
