Overview

Get your MoP (Management of Portfolios) certification in just three days - 40% faster than traditional training. You'll sit both the Foundation and Practitioner exams as part of the programme.

The MoP course helps you to improve the running of your organisation by implementing effective portfolio management. You'll approach management of change from a strategic viewpoint, in-line with AXELOS' definition of Portfolio Management:

A co-ordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable the most effective balance of organisational change and business as usual.

What you will learn:

  • Key differences between portfolio management and programme or project management
  • The benefits of portfolio management
  • Approaches, principles and purposes of successful portfolio management
  • How to remove redundant or poorly-performing projects, and successfully deliver the remaining ones

You'll also gain an understanding of how to optimise resource allocations, improve management of risk and define a business case to get senior management approval for portfolio management.

Note: This MoP® course is provided in conjunction with Thynk an AXELOS accredited training organisation.
