Exam – Multiple choice, 50 questions, 50% pass mark, 40 mins, closed book

MoP® PRACTITIONER LEVEL – 2 DAYS

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyse portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable support, be able to advise on the implementation of appropriate practices and techniques, and apply the method to a live portfolio, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual expertise, the complexity of the portfolio, and the support provided will also influence the impact the Practitioner can achieve.

Learning outcomes;

  • define the business case to get senior management approval for portfolio management
  • plan the implementation of portfolio management
  • select and adapt MoP principles, practices and techniques to suit different organizational environments
  • evaluate examples of MoP information (including documents and role descriptions)
  • analyse the solutions adopted in relation to a given scenario.

 

Exam – Objective testing format, 4 questions with 20 marks available per question, all question items will be worth one mark, 3hrs, open book exam (MoP guide only), 50% pass mark.
