Project Management

MoP® Training

Management of Portfolios (MoP®) provides guidance for businesses to make decisions regarding large-scale change through the implementation of projects and programmes. Portfolio Management approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic top-down viewpoint, rather than micro-managing them, in order to maximise benefits for the business.

About MoP® Training

Portfolio Management is the use of coordinated strategic processes and decisions by Senior Executives and Practitioners in order to invest in beneficial change initiatives, whilst ensuring that the business continues to function as normal. MoP® is structured around the improvement of current processes used by a business, in particular, Project and Programme Management. This technique approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic top-down perspective, in comparison to a micro-management approach.

 

The objective of this method is to make informed decisions and amplify the financial benefits experienced by businesses. MoP® is aligned with the Project Management methodology PRINCE2® and the Programme Management technique MSP®, however MoP® focuses on managing the change delivered by projects and programmes, rather than the individual initiatives.

 

MoP® supplies Senior Executives and Practitioners with a selection of principles, practices, and techniques which are used to initiate or renew Portfolio Management within a business. The MoP® methodology provides these individuals with a clear view of what is in the portfolio, how much it is costing, the risks involved, objectives, progression, and the impact on the day-to-day running of the business.

Courses Within MoP® Training

MoP® Foundation

The MoP® Foundation certification runs over three days and supplies delegates with an overview of Portfolio Management. In addition to providing a basic understanding of what Portfolio Management entails, information will be conveyed which describes practice methods, approaches and strategic change principles. Delegates will be trained in how to deliver successful, cost-effective, and high quality programmes and projects by ensuring effectual communication. This course is intensive in nature and so it is required for delegates to undertake around fifteen hours of pre-course reading and a minimum of two hours evening work each day, which will be assigned by the expert trainer.

 

MoP® Practitioner

This two-day course is a step up from the MoP® Foundation course, providing delegates with the ability to analyse portfolio documentation and data, advise on the implementation of best practice techniques, and apply the methodology to business portfolios. It is necessary for delegates to have attended the MoP® Foundation course and passed the associated exam in order to take this MoP® Practitioner course. Much like the Foundation training course, the MoP® Practitioner course requires delegates to undertake around fifteen hours of pre-course reading and a minimum of two hours evening work each day, assigned by the instructor.

 

MoP® Foundation and Practitioner

This five-day training course combines both MoP® Foundation and MoP® Practitioner courses to provide delegates with an all-encompassing knowledge of Portfolio Management. The Foundation segment touches on the basic knowledge and theory of MoP® and how it is used within a business, whereas the Practitioner will equip delegates with the knowledge to apply the MoP® methodology to a real scenario. There are no prerequisites for this MoP® Foundation and Practitioner course but there is pre-course reading and some evening work which should be undertaken to support your learning.

MoP® Training FAQs

We offer MoP® training courses in locations all over the UK, as well as abroad. It is very easy to find a training venue near you!
These MoP® certifications are not valid for a set period of time and so will not expire.
Yes, those who pass their Foundation exam will receive a certificate approximately 2 weeks following the exam. The Practitioner or the combined Foundation and Practitioner exam certificates will be sent to candidates around 2 weeks after the results have been released.
The recommended book for both the Foundation and Practitioner training courses is the official MoP® Guide by AXELOS. This book can be used in the Practitioner exam as this is an Open Book exam. There is also another AXELOS guide which can supplement the information from the official MoP® Guide. This extra guide is specifically aimed at Senior Executives. Find details of these books below: “Management of Portfolios” (2011 Edition) by AXELOS, and “An Executive Guide to Portfolio Management” (Aligned to the 2011 Edition) by AXELOS.
