MoP ® Portfolio Management

Getting the best return from the total investment in change programmes and projects has always been a challenge and ensuring successful delivery and realizing the full benefits in terms of efficiency savings and contribution to strategic objectives is of key relevance across all sectors.

MoP®: Management of Portfolios equips practitioners with the grounding to apply portfolio management effectively. It describes portfolio management and its strategic and organizational context and gives guidance on: the principles of effective portfolio management and key practices including examples of how to implement portfolio management.

This qualification is aimed at those involved in a range of portfolio management roles encompassing investment decision making, the selection and delivery of business change initiatives, project and programme delivery and benefits realization.

/ WHAT IS

Portfolios represent the totality of an organization’s investment in the changes required to achieve its strategic objectives. Portfolio Management is a co-ordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable a more effective balance of organizational change and business as usual. As such, Portfolio Management provides senior management with reliable evidence enabling more informed investment decisions about where to invest in new initiatives. Snap Tech’s MoP® Qualification is a facilitated, interactive engagement structured around principles and practices upon which successful Portfolio Management depends.

This is a 3½ day event that is facilitated by one of Snap Tech’s most experienced accredited trainers. You’ll find a comfortable, ready-to-learn atmosphere where you’ll receive expert instruction and guidance, interact with your peers, and gain the real-world skills that matter
