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.

Primavera P6: The puppet-master of projects

You have a mountain of projects to organise that just keep piling up, time constraints that feel like an avalanche crashing down on you and you don’t even know where to begin. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there at some point, even if only on a small scale. Trying to hit our university deadlines for example, or organising the plumber, electrician, gas man, painter and gardener to come round to the house all in the same day. Scale this up a hundred times and you are a Project Manager attempting to handle large number of large-scale projects. So what can you do?

I always found when juggling university essays or even now when dealing with numerous deadlines at work, that being in control is the key. I write lists, prioritise jobs, write things down, I like being able to see an overview of the situation and visualise what needs to be done. This is the fundamental aim of Primavera P6, which takes this idea of control and visualisation and scales it up to fit much larger, multifaceted projects.

Primavera P6 is a software which offers an Enterprise Project Portfolio Management solution. It is especially designed for Project Managers but can be beneficial to a high number of professionals. As one of the most used and globally recognised management systems in the Oracle Primavera group it has proven records of working well in a variety of business environments. The primary uses of Primavera P6 is to improve operations, performance and strategy execution. It gives you the strings to manoeuvre your projects.

1: Primavera P6 helps you pull the strings in project management

The P6 software is a high-performance multi-tier system, with a database, an application server and a web server. It is great for successfully measuring schedules, progress and forecasts. Like the puppeteer it enables you to conduct and plan your moves and gives you the tools needed to for better collaboration between operators. Managing project portfolios in this way (from start to finish) can benefit work performance through increasing productivity, improving communication and helping you to hit deadlines. No more looming avalanche.

Because Primavera P6 is a rather complex and high-performing system it is recommended to take formal training so that you can learn how to use the system to its full potential. It also gives you the knowledge and expertise in a globally recognised software, which can evidently open doors to career opportunities and promotions.

Training courses in Primavera P6 lead you through the project life cycle from beginning to end. Enabling you to gain the skills needed to implement P6 in the workplace and pull those strings effectively.

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.
