Description

Organisational leaders need to understand which organisational initiatives will deliver the required objective and how do proposed investments deliver ROI and contribute towards strategic goals and objectives. .

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

Prerequisites

Foundation

The MoP Foundation course uses a mix of notes, classroom dialogue, group work and self-study to enhance individual learning. It is a mixture of input and practical sessions, delivered by an MoP accredited trainer. 

The use of a case study with mock Foundation exam papers to familiarise participants with the exam format is used as the course is designed to impart relevant skills and knowledge by working through real-life examples and scenarios.

Participants will be provided with their personal copy of the official MoP manual (Management of Portfolios) before the start of the workshop for pre-course self study (approximately 12-15 hours). 

Practitioner

The MoP Practitioner certification validates your ability to understand, apply and tailor MoP to various scenarios. The Practitioner part of the course will focus on equipping you with the understanding to apply your Portfolio management knowledge.
