MoP® Management of Portfolios – Foundation/Practitioner
Anyone involved in planning, delivering and contributing to, programmes and projects and organisational strategy from inception to delivery will benefit from this course.
Duration 3 days Foundation / 1 days Practitioner
Many organisations focus on the performance of individual projects, or at best on the performance of individual programmes and projects, rather than on the performance of the sum-total of all their change initiatives ie, the portfolio. This makes it difficult to properly evaluate the cumulative effect that change initiatives will have on the organisation and to coordinate the implementation of change so as to safeguard the integrity of business operations.
To address this, the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) has recently published the MoP Guide (Management of Portfolios) to accompany the already existing guidance for Programme Management (MSP®) and Project Management (PRINCE2®).

The MoP® Foundation Certificate Course
The objective of the Foundation course is to enable delegates to understand the key principles and practices in successful Portfolio Management as described in the official OGC MoP Guide.
The course comprises a 3-day balanced blend of presentations, individual activities and discussion sessions. Delegates should also set aside some time for self-study and exercises during the evenings.
Participants are provided with an annotated hard copy of the slides together with any exercises, examples and templates discussed or developed during the workshop, as well as a copy of the official MoP™ Guide and a mock foundation exam paper.
The MoP® Practitioner Certificate Course
The objective of the practitioner course is to develop an in-depth understanding of MoP and how it can be applied in practice. The course builds on the knowledge gained during the Foundation program and improve the delegate’s ability to analyse portfolio data, documents and roles in different business situations. By the end of the course delegates will have a sufficient understanding on how to tailor and apply MoP.
