All-in-one framework
This framework is easy to learn, so it is suitable for both beginners and veterans of project management.
P3.express is suitable for most project teams. It helps you manage projects, create a corporate methodology, and build a project culture within the team.
Who Needs It and Why?
Simple Project Management System
It’s easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to teach.
P3.express is an intuitive and clear framework for project management. It represents the entire work cycle of a project — from start to finish.
What is P3.express?
80% result, 20% effort
At last, you are on firm ground and get 80% of the result with 20% of the effort.
Project management theory has become too complex. P3.express leaves out all unnecessary processes and gives the manager the most effective process to work with.
What Tasks Does It Solve?
P3.express solves this problem by transforming the project management process into a transparent flow of 33 real-life steps.
33 practical steps
The reason is that the underlying standards, although good, are too complex for many projects.
Despite the practical implementation of such fundamental systems as PRINCE2® and PMBOK®, most projects are carried out intuitively and without a recognisable approach.
And What Is the Key Advantage?
Master P3.express and Succeed in Any Project
An online coursewill help you quickly master the framework and use it in your work.
After training, you will be able to pass independent testing and receive an international P3.express Practitioner Certificate

P3.express Stages and Steps
The 33 steps of P3.express are united in 7 stages. The first stage is the preparation of the project — the last two are completion and post-project work.
Stages 2−5 — the cycle of project work, which lasts 2−4 weeks and rotates until the completion of the project.
A01—10. We define team roles, split-test the project, identify risks, and hold kick-off meetings.
1. Project Initiation
B01—05. We set 2−4 week plans, sort out priorities, and set up external and internal relations.
2. Monthly Initiation
C01—04. Evaluate progress, correct plan deviations, and hold weekly meetings.
3. Weekly Management
D01—02. Learn how to fix risks, solve problems, and accept the finished work.
4. Daily Management
E01—03. Rate customer and team satisfaction, plan improvements, and hold meetings.
5. Monthly Closure
F01—06. Convey the product and the project, learn lessons, and archive documents. Then, you fix the completion.
6. Project Closure
G01—03. Rate the received benefits and report them to the project team. Then, we’ll think about what can be improved.
7. Post-Project Management

His mission to make it easier to learn, practice and teach project management
For me personally, the main value of the framework is the simplicity of course mastery. You can learn the main approaches and procedures in 2 days. And then, you can apply it all in a week. We use the framework in projects where you need to set up common "rules of the game" in a short prospect for several teams with different backgrounds. In the beginning, we briefly introduce the framework outlines to the client's staff involved in the project. Then, we run the process according to the steps of P3.express, simultaneously explaining to interested parties what is happening now and what will happen next, and why it is important. Having a clear and simple "step-by-step plan" allows you to cut the sharp corners of interaction, to operate changes with less stress, and, eventually, to achieve the goals of the project much easier. If an Agile approach is too risky for your project, and PMBOK is too complex, I recommend trying P3.express.
Stas Spasenykh, Head of the Shtrikhpunktir Studio
I've been familiar with P3.express for two years currently! In fact, we have applied the elements of this hybrid methodology to take advantage of the management flexibility and accelerate the achievement of results within our rather strict life cycles of investment IT projects. Moreover, I am pleased to recommend P3.express in my internal course on change management in IT projects!
Alexander Mikhailov, Norilsk Nickel IT Project Portfolio Manager
P3.express is a compact and efficient project management platform with many step-by-step practical examples. The main advantage of this system is the swiftness of implementation and integration into any project. Thanks to this system, I was able to achieve transparency in the execution of project tasks and adjust interactions within and beyond the team. My special gratitude is to Valeria and Dima for their work and excellent support before and after training.
Maxim Sirenko, IT-Healthcare Consultant Avectris AG
A ready-made tool for work. I would recommend learning the theory of the course for the whole team simultaneously and then considering whether it will suit you or not. But even if it does not "take off" in the company, it allows you to recall and structure knowledge and experience. I want to note especially that the course contains relevant examples and links to useful services, some of which have become excellent tools in my work. Thanks to Dmitry and his team for adapting and preparing great material.
