Management of Portfolios (MoP®) is part of the Global Best Practice suite of publications, which helps organizations and individuals manage their projects, programmes and services consistently and effectively.

At the heart of any portfolio management approach is the need to identify the right programmes and projects to deliver an organization's strategy, and ensure that targeted benefits are achieved. MoP describes the principles and best-practices that will enable public and private sector organizations of all sizes to either introduce or re-energize portfolio management approaches.

All professionals with an interest in, or responsibility for, organizational strategy and delivering programmes and projects, will benefit from this comprehensive reference manual.

Organizations applying this guidance can expect to see real benefits in the short term.

I found the Portfolio Definition Cycle of particular help as we, as an organisation, are only now starting to implement Portfolio management across a diverse group of previously separate operating companies. This guide provided me with a framework to better understand the steps that I needed to take and to also explain to others what Portfolio Management was about and what we should be working towards. This is the first year we've attempted to prioritise and balance our portfolio and this was done based on the guidance in this guide.

Both myself and my organisation have a long way to go before we will have implemented Portfolio Management effectively however we are now at least making strides forwards.

The guide provided me with the knowledge and confidence to present to others on the leadership team, other teams and my own project managers about what Portfolio Management is and my vision for the future of our department.

As a self-study item I found the material very easy to consume. The self-paced stud allowed me time to pause and reflect on the applicability of particular items to my own work and organisation.
