Management of Portfolios Foundation and Practitioner (MOPFP)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Management of Portfolios (MoP) provides advice and examples of how to apply principles, practices, and techniques that together enable the most effective balance of organisational change and business as usual. Delivered by fully accredited trainers and industry leading experts with extensive experience of portfolio management, the course engages with the students to ensure that theory is embedded and delegates feel confident in the practical application of MoP.

Who should attend

The MoP Practitioner qualification is aimed at those involved in a range of formal and informal portfolio management roles encompassing investment decision making, project and programme delivery, and benefits realisation. It is relevant to all those involved in the selection and delivery of business change initiatives including:

  • Members of management boards and Directors of Change
  • Senior Responsible Owners (SROs)
  • Portfolio, Programme, Project, Business Change, and Benefits Managers
  • Business Case writers and project appraisers.

Prerequisites

A successful Practitioner delegate should be able to apply and understand how to tailor MoP effectively. And, with suitable support, be able to advise on the implementation of appropriate practices, techniques, and apply the method to a live portfolio. Specifically candidates should be able to demonstrate their ability to:

  • Define the business case to get senior management approval for portfolio management
  • Plan the implementation of portfolio management
  • Select and adapt MoP principles, practices and techniques to suit different organisational environments
  • Evaluate examples of MoP information (including documents and role descriptions)
  • Analyze the solutions adopted in relation to a given scenario

Additional work will be required during evenings consisting of consolidation reading and a mock examination. This evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend 2 hours each evening on these activities.

Course Objectives

The objective of the course is to prepare students for both the MoP Foundation and Practitioner level examinations. To confirm understanding of the MoP principles, cycles, practices, techniques, roles and documentation.
