Please Call Us

Quick Overview

This one day awareness event is suitable for senior managers and practitioners who need guidance to help them set up and run portfolio management. It describes portfolio management in its strategic and organizational context and examines the principles and practices that ensure programmes and projects remain aligned to strategic objectives

Download Course Outline


Management of Portfolios (MoP®) complements the suite of related PPM guidance developed by Best Management Practice to help organizations and individuals to use Best Practice to manage projects, programmes and services consistently and effectively.

MoP® focuses on strategic investment decision-making and integrates seamlessly with all other best practice methodologies. It is highlighted throughout MoP® that whilst portfolio management will be more effective where robust programme and project management (PPM) exists, this is not a prerequisite.

There is, however one exception; the need for some form of P3O® or Portfolio Office model (either physical or virtual) that provides portfolio information to senior management is mandated. Where required, SPOCE can combine this briefing with an overview of P3O® (Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices).
