Who are we? Adding Value Consulting (AVC)
AVC introduced MoP in Norway in 2006 and has since promoted the method's growth in the Nordic region.AVC is a leading ATO (Accredited Training Organization), which organizes courses in the Nordics, regarding the following leading practices; PRINCE2, PMP, IPMA, MSP, MoP, P3O, MoR, Managing Benefits, Change Management, ITIL, and many others.
What is MoP?
The Management of Portfolios (MoP) guidance has been developed to provide senior executives and decision makers with an overview of portfolio management - the principles upon which it is based, some of the techniques used, and how to get started and sustain progress.
MoP is closely aligned to the programme and project management methodologies outlined in MSP and PRINCE2, but focuses on the management of the change that is delivered by formalized project and programme management, rather than the individual initiatives.
The guidance addresses the key concepts of portfolio management, its benefits to an organization and how it fits in with current business processes.
Why should you train MoP?
Ensure successful delivery in terms of time, quality, budget and benefits realization.
Improve engagement and communication between senior management and staff.
Offer more informed resource allocation, improved delivery and greater benefits realization going forward.
Prioritize programmes and projects in terms of their contribution to your organization’s strategic objectives and overall level of risk.
Provide a means for greater efficiency in the delivery of change initiatives via improved resource planning, dependency management and streamlined procedures.
Remove redundant, duplicate and poorly performing programmes and projects.
Improve coordination of existing functions and processes.
Ensure constrained resources are allocated to optimize strategic impact, coordinate delivery and maintain strategic alignment.
Invest in programmes and projects in the context of the current environmental conditions and better coordinate investment in programmes and projects, improve the management of risk and encourage collaborative working.
Enhance transparency, accountability and corporate governance.
Our training approach: Our training courses are designed to help the participant pass the exams, but more importantly we want the participant to be able to apply the MoP method to portfolio management in practice. We provide the participant with the knowledge, which can directly be used in daily practice. We run our training course as a very practical and hands-on workshop approach.
Our courses are based around a real-life case study with various scenarios to walk through each stage of the programme lifecycle. Case studies will enable the participant to understand the best practice way of applying the MoP method to deliver a successful project portfolio management. The participants will learn the theory but in a fun and engaging way.
When: We are currently planning our MoP training session in Oslo, during week 50 (12-16 Dec). We have a number of participants. We run this course in smaller groups of max. 8 participants per group.
