To be successful, organisations must evolve, and this means improving how they run their business on a daily basis (business as usual) and adapting to emerging demands and expectations. Portfolio Management helps organisations make decisions about implementing the right changes to business as usual. These changes are then delivered via projects and programmes.
This Management of Portfolios (MoP) course approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic viewpoint. It provides an overview of all change activities including what is in the portfolio, what it is costing, what risks are faced, what progress is being made, and what the impact is on business as usual and the organisation’s strategic objectives. It also prepares candidates for the MoP Foundation and Practitioner certification.
The benefits of MoP for organisations include:

The Practitioner course prepares participants to undertake and pass the MoP Practitioner Exam. The Practitioner level qualification aims to measure whether the candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MoP to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyse portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation.
Note: Practitioner course is an exam preparation course and focuses on the application of the Management of Portfolios to prepare candidates for the Practitioner examination.

MoP Practitioner preparation includes a comprehensive review of the above topics, including how they can be applied to an organisation. Review will take the form of discussion groups, revision questions and completion of sample exam questions.
