MoP ® Portfolio Management Courses
What is MoP?
Programmes and projects have been the focus of organisations’ efforts to manage change for many years. More recently, portfolio management has come to the fore as organizations have become increasingly aware that delivery is only half the battle. Just as important is whether or not the change initiatives are the ‘right’ ones and whether the potential return on investment is achieved.
Portfolios represent the totality of an organisation’s investment (or segment thereof) on changes required to achieve its strategic objectives. Portfolio management is a coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable a more effective balance of organizational change and business as usual.
MoP is an acronym of Management of Portfolios. MoP training will help you and your organisation make decisions about implementing the right changes to business as usual. MoP provides a 'bird's eye view' of all change activities, both those in planning and those in delivery. This includes a clear line of sight about what is in the portfolio, what it is costing, what risks are faced, what progress is being made and the impact on your organisations business as usual.
Portfolio Management is concerned with:
- ensuring the programmes and projects undertaken are the right ones in the context of the organisation’s strategic objectives;
- successful delivery at a collective level;
- that benefits realization is maximised; and
- that lessons learned are identified, disseminated and applied in the future.
