Description

The MoP framework enables organisation leaders to understand which initiatives will deliver the required objectives, ROI and contribute towards the strategic goals.

The MoP certification course provides the framework in which organisations manage projects and programmes. Portfolio management is about investing in the right projects rather than implementing projects better.
