MoP - Management of Portfolios Practitioner

Management of Portfolios (MoP) considers 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 organization’s strategic objectives.

The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyse portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation. You should, with suitable support, be able to advise on the implementation of appropriate practices and techniques, and apply the method to a live portfolio. 

This course is for those who hold the Foundation certificate and wish to upgrade to Practitioner.
