AXELOS MoP® Foundation Certification

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.

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.

This is the three-day approach to gaining the Foundation qualification.

It is an intense course that will require delegates to prepare thoroughly and be prepared for evening work throughout the course.
