Using MoP in Your Organization

The Management of Portfolios (MoP) guidance has been developed to provide senior executives and decision makers with an overview of portfolio management - the principles upon which it is based, some of the techniques used, and how to get started and sustain progress.

MoP is closely aligned to the programme and project management methodologies outlined in MSP® and PRINCE2®, but focuses on the management of the change that is delivered by formalized project and programme management, rather than the individual initiatives.

The guidance addresses the key concepts of portfolio management, its benefits to an organization and how it fits in with current business processes.

I’m very impressed with the approach ONS is taking in developing its portfolio management strategy and processes. I endorse the direction which is being taken, which is consistent with the work in which MPA is engaged in developing a Government-wide portfolio of major projects.
