This is an intensive three-day course, which includes the Management of Portfolios Foundation examination on the final day. This Foundation training will allow participants to understand the principles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities, documents and organisational context within which portfolio management operates.
The Management of Portfolios (MoP™) guidance provides advice and examples of how to apply principles, practices and techniques that help optimise an organisation’s investment in change alongside its business-as-usual (BAU) work. The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a portfolio office or in a range of portfolio management roles.
MoP™ helps organisations to answer a fundamental question: ‘are we sure this investment is right for us and how will it contribute to our strategic objectives?’ Investment is the key word because portfolio management is about investing in the right change initiatives and implementing them correctly. MoP™ achieves this by ensuring that:
A portfolio is the totality of an organisation’s investment (or segment thereof) in the changes required to achieve its strategic objectives. 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’.
