Management of Portfolios (MoP®) is about investing in the right change initiatives and implementing them effectively. MoP® helps organisations answer a fundamental question: 'Are we sure this investment is right for us and how will it contribute to our strategic objectives?'
MoP® achieves this by ensuring that:
The programmes and projects undertaken are prioritised in terms of their contribution to the organisation's strategic objectives and overall level of risk.
Programmes and projects are managed consistently to ensure efficient and effective delivery.
Benefits realisation is maximised to provide the greatest return (in terms of strategic contribution and efficiency savings) from the investment made.
The purpose of the Foundation certification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a Portfolio Office or in a range of portfolio management roles. The Foundation certification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner certification.
