Management of Portfolios

MoP® (Management of Portfolios) provides a set of principles, techniques and practices to help organizations ensure their programmes and projects contribute to strategic objectives and achieve maximum Return on Investment (RoI).

Catalyze provides processes and tools for the implementation of MoP. Our approach is designed to support the ‘Portfolio definition’ and ‘Portfolio delivery’ cycles as outlined in MoP with an emphasis on robust and repeatable portfolio definition.

Our Track Record

Since 2001 we have been helping our clients to prioritize, helping them to succeed. Global corporations and government departments alike have found our approach effective, as evidenced by our case studies.

‘Doing the Right Things’

In our experience, the key to success is the ability to focus available resources on the highest priority projects and programmes. Agreement on this focused portfolio requires the active involvement of stakeholders in a structured, rational, ‘socio-technical’ process, building the alignment and trust required to take difficult strategic decisions.

How we do it

We combine multi-criteria decision techniques with Decision Conferencing, providing a proven, academically rigorous and repeatable process to identify portfolios that deliver the best value-for-money.

What we do

We manage a process to develop and deliver a portfolio:

  • Establishing your context and adapting our process and toolset
  • Collecting information & data in templates
  • Facilitating meetings and workshops with stakeholders and experts
  • Driving to a conclusion
  • Embedding a repeatable process, with ongoing support

Background to MoP

The MoP guidelines were originally published by the UK Cabinet Office, with Catalyze providing several case studies. MoP® is now owned and promoted by AXELOS.
