MoP contains a number of techniques to categorise and prioritise initiatives, and a framework for managing their delivery including benefits, risk and resource management processes. During the course, best practices principles needed by organisations for successful portfolio management are examined. The course will furthermore enable your successful Management of Portfolios exams at Foundation and Practitioner levels.
• Understanding the context of portfolio management and its contribution to effecting organizational change
• Clarifying how portfolio management relates to programme, project and change management
• Understanding the benefits of applying portfolio management
• Ability to define the scope of the portfolio and the mechanisms for collecting portfolio level information across the organization
• Understanding the factors that define the entry and exit criteria for the portfolio, and identifying how these are to be communicated to the relevant stakeholders
• Knowledge on how to create the information flow between projects, programmes, change initiatives and the portfolio, and ratifying this information against emerging strategic objectives
• Ability to create the reporting structure that ensures information from the portfolio is used when reviewing initial project ideas and for defining the interdependencies between projects and change initiatives
• Passing the MoP Foundation and MoP Practitioner exams
Participating in the MoP 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 an 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, requiring that you have a detailed understanding of various aspects of the discipline of portfolio management.
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 M_o_P 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 5-day daytime course from 9.00 to 16.00 on Days 1-4 and from 9.00 to 12.00 on Day 5. As participant you are 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.
The Practitioner exam consists of 4 questions with a total of 80 marks available to be completed within 3 hours. Candidates need to achieve 40 points to pass.
