Management of Portfolios (MoP®) is about investing in the right change initiatives and implementing them effectively. MoP® helps organisations answer a fundamental question: ‘Are we sure this investment is right for us and how will it contribute to our strategic objectives?’
MoP® is structured around five flexible principles within which the two cycles and the 12 portfolio management practices exist. While portfolio management will be more effective where robust programme and project management (PPM) exists, this is not a prerequisite for its successful implementation.

This is the 2 day Foundation course and is a mixture of input and practical sessions teaching to the APM Group ‘Foundation-level’ syllabus, delivered by an APMG approved trainer with practical experience of project and portfolio management. The course incorporates the APM Group Foundation exam, but includes additional focus on the application of the method using application-level tasks in order to add value and help delegates better understand how to apply the concepts of MoP®, as well as be better prepared if they ever choose to go on to take the Practitioner-level exam in the future.
The Foundation exam is taken near the end of the last day, after all of the MoP® elements have been sufficiently covered.
Delegates should spend approximately 10 hours pre-study in order to be well prepared for the course.
