This intensive MoP Foundation course gives you a detailed explanation of all the steps needed to define and deliver a portfolio of initiatives. It examines the principles of best practice that an organisation needs for successful portfolio management. MoP contains a number of techniques to categorise and prioritise the initiatives, and a framework for managing their delivery including benefits, risk and resource management processes. The course will furthermore enable your successful Management of Portfolios certification exam at Foundation level.
Participating in the MoP Foundation course will provide you with detailed knowledge of the best practice principles and processes that enable defining and delivering a portfolio. You will learn techniques to analyse and prioritise change initiatives as well as reporting tools to ensure impactful progress reporting to stakeholders. You will also gain an understanding of how existing processes for risk, finance, resource, and communications management are applied to portfolio management.
This course is relevant if you or your organisation need a practical approach to managing your project portfolio based on best management practice. You may be a manager, have a support function, or be a part of a support function, which requires that you have a detailed understanding of various aspects of the portfolio management discipline.
It is recommended that you have a reasonable understanding of strategic planning within your organization, as you may be asked to work through you own examples as part of the course.
Approximately three weeks before course start, you will receive the official MoP e-book and a precourse workbook including exercises. The pre-course workbook consists of exercises and recommendations of relevant reading in the e-book. We recommend that you spend an estimated 15 hours going through the pre-course work book prior to your participation in the course.
The course is held as an intensive 3-day daytime course from 9.00 to 16.00 all days. As participant you are expected and encouraged to contribute actively during the course activities which will alternate between practical exercises and theoretical reviews.
After the course you can book your exam by using your exam voucher. It is a pre-requisite that you have participated in the course before you can take the exam. As Peak Consulting Group does not have exam rooms available, it is not possible to take the exam at the end of the course. The Foundation exam consists of a multiple choice test of 50 questions. In order to pass the exam, you must have minimum 25 correct answers.
