For ease of reference, we are calling the scenario we have created and the principles we promote as Business Integrated (P3M) Governance – abbreviated to BIG. The Chapters in the BIG knowledge base contain prose, illustrations and links to the original working materials (which have been subject to less quality review that the prose has). Each has link to further discussion and resources. These include:
Introduction – high level introduction to the ‘problem’, simple perspectives from key stakeholder groups, consequences and outline of the Core P3M Data and Business Integrated Governance Model. This also includes the Framework Overview – basis of the Model, Accountability, the governance framework for accountabilities, introduction to operation using the Model, the importance of cadence and harmonisation, outline of ‘what’s in it for me?’ for key stakeholder groups.
Main Board – Assumptions about how Main Boards relate to P3M, introduction of terms to use in a Business Integrated (P3M) Governance Model, example business agenda for matters relating to P3M for boards, outline Management Information definitions.

For Portfolio Direction and Progress Groups – outline of assumptions taken from good practice, implied business agenda for portfolios, implied Management Information definitions.
