MoP® Foundation

Course overview

MoP® is the new standard for portfolio management.
It offers a framework for defining and delivering portfolios of change.

A portfolio is a changing set of activities, projects and programmes, which is deliberately chosen to achieve the strategic objectives of an organization. The purpose of portfolio management is to determine a more effective balance of organizational change (activities, projects and programmes) and business as usual.
As such, portfolio management provides senior management with reliable evidence enabling better and more informed investment decisions about:
Whether to invest in new change initiatives
Whether or not to continue to invest in existing change initiatives
How to ensure efficient and effective delivery
How to maximize the return on investment.

Management of Portfolios (MoP®) is part of, and supports, other best management practice for project and programme management such as PRINCE2®, MSP®, and P3O®, as well as the M_o_R® guidance for dealing with risk.

During this MoP® training course you will learn a standard approach to define and deliver portfolios of change.
The two main processes of portfolio management (defining a portfolio and delivering a portfolio) will be explained, and the MoP® principles, cycles, practices, roles and related documentation are discussed.
