What is MoP?

MoP is a guidance on best practices of managing portfolios of projects and programmes.

Management of Portfolios is an integral part of organizational governance. It can be used on different levels of the organization: as a complex organization solution or within a single department.

MoP guidance concentrates ona  proper decision making process that involves investing in programmes and projects (as a manner of dealing with business changes), which enables achieving strategic objectives and business goals.

It is worth mentioning that project and programme organizational structures are temporary, whereas management of portfolio is permanent.

Programmes and projects are primarily focused on delivering outcomes/benefits and outputs/products, respectively. On the other hand, management of portfolio is focused on the overall contribution to these outcomes, benefits and outputs of strategic goals of the organization.

The main goal of project and programme management is delivering an effective and efficient way of carring out individual programmes and projects. Management of Portfolios guarantees::

  • proper process of programmes and projects in the context of achieving strategic organizational goals
  • effective delivery on all levels
  • maximizing organization benefits
  • identifying and sharing the acquired knowledge and experience for future.
