About the course

MoP logo

The course content is based upon the official TSO MoP manual. MoP helps provide the tools to enable organisations to answer the 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 two cycles and 12 portfolio management practices exist. Unlike most methods, all portfolio management principles, cycles and practices are used at the same time albeit at varying levels of intensity, depending on the organization and the environment in which it works. The course walks you through each principle, cycle and practice explaining the theory in detail at the same time as backing theory up with real world examples and useful ‘keys to success’.
