Duration

This is an intensive three-day course that helps prepare you for the MoP Foundation examination. The training is conducted via a virtual training environment. You need to ensure that you can satisfy the technical requirements that can be found on our website here.

The Foundation level qualification measures understanding of the principles, cycles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities, documents and organizational context within which portfolio management operates. Specifically by the end of the course you should know and understand the:

  • scope and objectives of portfolio management and how it differs from programme and project management
  • benefits from applying portfolio management
  • context within which it operates
  • principles upon which successful portfolio management is based
  • approaches to implementation, the factors to consider in maintaining progress, and how to assess the success of portfolio management
  • purposes of the portfolio management definition and delivery cycles and their component practices, and relevant techniques applicable to each practice
  • purpose and key content of the major portfolio documents
  • scope of key 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:

  • The programmes and projects undertaken are prioritised in terms of their contribution to the organisation’s strategic objectives and overall level of risk
  • Programmes and projects are managed consistently to ensure efficient and effective delivery
  • Benefits realisation is maximised to provide the greatest return (in terms of strategic contribution and efficiency savings) from the investment made.
