MoP® Management of Portfolios Courses

MoP® Certification - Management of Portfolios

Portfolio management is defined as a coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable the most effective balance of organizational change and business as usual.
Management of Portfolios (MoP®) approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic viewpoint.

  • 50 questions per paper
  • 25 marks required to pass (out of 50 available) - 50%
  • 40 minutes’ duration

PRACTITIONER LEVEL


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, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Your individual expertise, the complexity of the portfolio, and the support provided will also influence the impact the Practitioner can achieve.
