Management of Portfolios (MoP®) Practitioner


Portfolio management is a coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that enable an effective balance of organizational change and business as usual. Management of Portfolios (MoP®) approaches 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 MoP qualification scheme has been developed to offer two levels of qualification, Foundation and Practitioner.

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyze portfolio data, documentation, and roles in relation to a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate 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. Their individual expertise, the complexity of the portfolio, and the support provided will also influence the impact the Practitioner can achieve


This qualification is aimed at those involved in a range of formal and informal portfolio management roles encompassing investment decision making, project and programme delivery, and benefits realization. It is relevant to those involved in the selection and delivery of business change initiatives including: members of Management Boards and Directors of Change; Senior Responsible Owners (SROs); portfolio, programme, project, business change and benefits managers; and business case writers and project appraisers


An MOP Foundation certificate is required and some experience in managing portfolio’s


This program will be conducted with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentation, discussion, and practical exercise.


Candidates should be able to apply and understand how to tailor Mop effectively. Specifically, candidates should be able to demonstrate their ability to:

• define the business case to get senior management approval for portfolio management

• plan the implementation of portfolio management

• select and adapt MoP principles, practices, and techniques to suit different organizational environments

• evaluate examples of MoP information (including documents and role descriptions)

• analyze the solutions adopted in relation to a given scenario.
