Management of Portfolios Foundation & Practitioner Certification

DGPO 1982

Find out how to receive improved ROI from change initiatives and gain an organization-wide understanding of the benefits a project.

Management of Portfolios complements existing Best Practice in portfolio, programme and project management and provides:

  • The definitions of portfolio and portfolio management
  • The portfolio management model and the relationship between the principles, cycles, practices and relevant techniques
  • The names of the portfolio definition and delivery practices
  • The differences between portfolios & portfolio management and projects/project management & programmes/programme management
  • The local circumstances that will affect how the MoP principles and practices will be adapted and how cost-effective approaches can be adopted
  • The objectives and benefits of portfolio management

    The Foundation certification confirms that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a Portfolio Office or in a range of portfolio management roles. The Foundation level is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner certification.

    The Practitioner certification confirms you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyze portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation. The exam vouchers are included in the cost of the course.
