‘Management of Portfolios (MOP)’ is an AXELOS framework offering tools, knowledge, and best practices to drive effective portfolio management. Practitioners are able to effectively choose, prioritize, and control an organization’s projects and programs based on their knowledge of strategic goals and the organization’s capacity to deliver results. At the same time, they are able to balance this with ‘business as usual’, sustaining the business while helping it achieve significant change.
MoP offers principles, techniques, and practices for portfolio management, with a focus on: Choosing programs and projects that align with strategic objectives, executing programs and projects in a way that maximizes customer and stakeholder value, and driving change initiatives while still managing ‘business-as-usual’ activities.
MoP practitioners are experts at ensuring change initiatives are targeted, efficient, and cost-effective. They can also engage with stakeholders to ensure they understand the benefits of portfolio management. MoP best practices can also be applied across different areas of a business, including project and program management, as well as strategic planning and stakeholder engagement.
