MoP: principles, practices, and procedures for successful portfolio management

Techniques for planning and implementing portfolios of change

MoP® (Management of Portfolios) is comprised of principles, techniques, and practices that will assist your organization in the successful adoption of portfolio management.

MoP is concerned with two issues:

  • how to choose the optimal projects and programmes to suit your organization’s strategic objectives
  • how to execute them to optimize value for customers and other stakeholders.

It focuses on the change delivered by project and programme management as a whole, rather than the work of individual initiatives.

MoP is closely aligned with PRINCE2 and MSP. It helps senior executives and decision-makers to understand how portfolio management can maximize return on investment, and start and sustain transformation.

Key benefits

  • Deliver the best return from the total investment in change programmes and projects
  • Used as a ‘how to’ guide for portfolio management
  • Realize the full benefits in terms of efficiency savings and contribution to strategic objectives
  • Provide the tools and techniques needed to identify and prioritize overall investment.
