With portfolio management organisations can make decisions about implementing the right changes to business as usual via projects and programmes. Portfolio management approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic viewpoint and is not concerned with the detailed management of these projects and programmes.

The MoP® (Management of Portfolios) guidance provides senior executives and practitioners responsible for planning and implementing change, a set of principles, techniques and practices to introduce or re-energise portfolio management.

MoP’s definition of portfolio management is: “A coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that together enable the most effective balance of organizational change and business as usual.” MoP® provides an overview of portfolio management, including the principles, techniques and practices alongside an organisation’s ‘business as usual' work.

MoP® helps organisations evaluate whether an investment is right for them and how it will contribute to their strategic objectives.
