The Foundation and Practitioner exams are both included.

Portfolio Management allows organisations to make decisions regarding any large-scale change by putting in place change projects and programmes.

Through securing these new skills, candidates can enhance their employability status and demonstrate to prospective employers that they are well-informed, dynamic and committed to developing professionally.

The Foundation segment is covered within the initial two days and touches on the basic knowledge and theory of MoP® and how it is used within a business. The Practitioner segment will equip delegates with the knowledge to apply the MoP® methodology to a real scenario. Our experienced and knowledgeable trainers provide high-quality sessions and use interactive teaching techniques to ensure delegates retain the knowledge that they have acquired.

Who should attend this MoP Training Course?

The MoP® Foundation training course is suited to all those involved in the selection and implementation of change initiatives, these include:

  • Portfolio Managers
  • Senior Responsible Owners
  • Management Board Members
  • Portfolio Office Contributors
  • Business Case Writers
  • Project and Portfolio Appraisers

Prerequisites

This course has no prerequisites, meaning anyone who is simply interested in obtaining an MoP® certification and entering into a portfolio management career, can enrol on an MoP® Foundation training course with The Knowledge Academy.

This course is intensive in nature. Therefore, it is required for delegates to undertake around fifteen hours of pre-course reading. In addition, it is expected that delegates undertake a minimum of two hours of evening work each day. This homework will be assigned by the expert trainer and will supplement training.  

MoP® Foundation Course Overview

The Management of Porfolios (MoP)® training course provides delegates with a basic understanding of what Portfolio Management is and how it is used in practice. The MoP® approach to the management of change projects and programmes is covered in detail to ensure that delegates acquire a comprehensive understanding of MoP® and its uses within businesses. You'll learn about MoP® practice methods, approaches and strategic change principles. The MoP® Foundation exam is included and is taken online.

Delegates will be trained to be able to deliver successful, cost-effective, and high quality programmes and projects by ensuring effectual communication.

As this course is classified at the Beginner level, teaching is tailored to those who may have little prior knowledge of Portfolio Management. Our MoP® Foundation training course supplies delegates with a selection of principles, practices and techniques that are used to initiate or renew Portfolio Management within a business.

The MoP® methodology is taught in detail, to educate candidates in the basics of MoP®. The methodology provides a clear view of what is included within the portfolio, how much it is costing, the risks involved, objectives, progression, and the impact on the day-to-day running of the business.
