What is MoP?

Management of Portfolios (MoP) is a best practice framework which enables businesses to make decisions regarding the type of large scale changes which would usually be implemented through projects and programmes. Processes for managing projects and programmes are long established, so MoP is not concerned with micro-managing these things. Instead, the framework takes a top-down approach, focusing the strategy for choosing and delivering these projects, in order to extract maximum benefit from them.

MoP is one of many frameworks managed by AXELOS, an organisation jointly created with the UK government, and is designed to fully align with other AXELOS guidance, such as PRINCE2®, MSP™ and P3O®.

 

Case Study

The UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) successfully implemented MoP in just 100 days.

In 2012, an organisational change programme recognised the need for portfolio management across ONS. As the organisation did not have the skills to deliver this on their own, they decided to use the MoP guidance.

In order to ensure a successful MoP implementation, ONS knew it was critical to gain the support of their staff. They did this by educating staff on the value MoP could bring to the business, using techniques such as graphics and diagrams to present important strategic information in a visually interesting way.

Eventually, MoP allowed ONS to create a Portfolio Delivery Unit (PDU) – a central office through which the organisation’s portfolio could be managed.  One again, a key element in the unit’s success was to ensure people understood what it would bring to the company. To accomplish this, the team created a PDU welcome pack which was distributed not just through email but through face to face meetings as well. Through the PDU, each project was reviewed in terms of its benefits and how these aligned with broader business strategy. This ensured that only the most important and relevant projects were carried forwards, freeing up investment in other areas.

Ultimately, MoP at the Office of National Statistics was highly successful because everyone across the organisation, from staff to the board of directors, was made to understand its benefits. The reason ONS were able to implement MoP in just 100 days was because the project had everyone’s backing, meaning they worked together as one team towards the common goal: clearer, more informed decision making and confident strategies for building the organisation’s future.

PRINCE2 Will Change Your Life

I’m sure the question that’s floating around your mind is “How?”

Well you’ve come to the right place because we’re going to tell you all about it.

PRINCE2 is an acronym for Projects in Controlled Environments. It’s a de facto process-based method for effective project management. This means that the course allows you to run your business with the correct methodology in mind. PRINCE2 has become increasingly more popular and is now a globally recognised certification in both public and private sector organisations. 

Fact of the day:
“PRINCE2 has been around since 1989, that’s nearly 30 years!”

PRINCE2’s Key Features Include:
     1. Business justification focus
     2. An organised and defined structure for the project management team
     3. A planning approach to products
     4. Helps divide your poroject into stages that are manageable and controllable
     5. A level of flexibilty that can applied to your business' project(s)

So what are the benefits of PRINCE2?
By using PRINCE2, it will provide you with the resources and the ability to manage your business as well as projecting risk more effectively.
This will benefit:
     - Anyone searching for leading project management skills to further their career
     - Any current budding project managers within your business
     - Directors or executives of projects and organisations

Having a PRINCE2 certification would be an asset to your career; not only will it increase your likelihood for employment, but it also helps you fulfil your job to the best of your abilities!

Where do you see yourself in years to come?
Being PRINCE2 Certified opens up many doors to a better future. It will enable you to make your way up the management ladder. Getting a project management role can require several years of experience within a technical role appropriate to the project, but being certified would boost your chances of being able to climb that ladder quicker!

You could find yourself managing projects anywhere from the top of an office building to even remote tropical islands out on the ocean.

Qualifications and Training
Imagine PRINCE2 as if it were a cake; with four tiers, each containing a different level of which you can study the course.
PRINCE2 Foundation:
This is the base of the cake, a great place to start is you’re new. The foundation course covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2.
PRINCE 2 Practitioner:
The second tier is suitable for those already managing projects within a PRINCE2 environment and therefore have a little experience in mind.
PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner:
Tier three contains both courses if you wish to take both.
PRINCE2 Re-Registration:
You will need to re-register after 3-5 years of becoming “PRINCE2 Certified”, this is just to keep your memory refreshed. Just think of it as you’re done eating the first and second (maybe even third) tiers of your cake – but the final tier, you can’t quite stomach yet. So you come back to it every now and then to remind you how good it tastes.

The world of PRINCE2 will open up your mind to many possibilities in the future of your career.

“So have your cake and eat it.”

I had an excellent trainer, they were very generous in the giving of their time to explain, and I thought they managed the room very well. I would certainly recommend TKA to others that are thinking of taking this and other courses.
