MoP™ (Management of Portfolios)

2 The basics of MoPTM books
MoP™ is a framework for understanding, prioritizing and
planning a portfolio of business change initiatives; it is a
coordinated collection of strategic processes and decisions that
together enable the most effective balance of organizational
change and ‘business as usual’.

3 Summary of MoPTM  books
The MoP guide was published by the Cabinet Office in 2011.
The guide addresses the question of what changes, programmes
and projects should be undertaken by an organization today
and tomorrow, and those it should support in the future. Its
primary aim is to support those with strategic or change portfolio
responsibility to make appropriate change investment decisions
in a logical, transparent and efficient way.

Portfolio management is not concerned with the detailed
management of the projects and programmes: rather, it
approaches the management of change projects and programmes
from a strategic viewpoint.

MoP addresses the challenges of ‘Run the Business vs. Change
the Business’. Organizations expend energy on running their
operations well. Most organizations also adopt and embed
consistent programme, project and change management methods.
MoP provides the interface between these elements.

Portfolio management aims to address the following fundamental
questions:
• Are we doing the right things?
• Are we doing these things right?
• Most significantly, are we realizing all the benefits in terms
of more effective services and efficiency savings from the
changes we are implementing?

The mechanisms by which these questions are answered are
incorporated in the MoP framework (see Figure). This framework
brings together the key activities required to successfully define
and deliver a portfolio of change whilst ensuring resources are
used efficiently.

MoP

This framework consists of two portfolio management cycles,
portfolio definition and portfolio delivery, and of five portfolio
management principles:
• Senior management commitment
• Governance alignment
• Strategy alignment
• Portfolio Office
• Energized change culture

4 MoPTM books Target audience
Senior management, people responsible for governance and all
those with strategic or change portfolio responsibility.

5 Scope and constraints of MoPTM books
The scope of the method comprises the different decision –
making processes around strategic change initiatives within
organizations. MoP is part of the Best Management Practice
methods developed by the Cabinet Office. This means that it is
fully aligned with PRINCE2®, MSP™ and P3O®.

The MoP guidance claims that it helps organizations to
understand which change initiatives contribute most to their
strategy and enables them to make informed decisions about
their overall status, prioritization, risk and benefits.
