MoP®

Management of Portfolio Foundation & Practitioner

What is it about?

This Management of Portfolio (MoP®) course is designed for delegates who require the capability to successfully implement portfolio management.

Portfolio management is a coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable the most effective balance of organisational change and ‘business as usual’.

MoP® is structured around five (5) flexible principles within which the two cycles and the 12 portfolio management practices exist. Differing from most methods, portfolio management principles, cycles and practices are used concurrently.

It provides the theory, techniques and tools necessary to manage a portfolio, enabling clear understanding of the Portfolio Management cycles, practices and techniques and the organisational context within which they operate.
