Course Objectives

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) was developed as a best practice guide to program management. The foundation course provides participants with a solid understanding of MSP concepts. The Foundation Certification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner Certification.

Managing Successful Programmes – MSP® provides a framework to break down large, complex change projects into manageable, inter-related sub-projects. It highlights tactics of managing key resources of any project, including time, money, manpower etc.

The training is a scenario-based course focusing on the application of MSP® under different program environments and scenarios. Review and revision sessions of all MSP® elements are included throughout the training.

MSP® is highly suitable for business transformation and political/societal change, because it is an approach designed to accommodate high levels of complexity, ambiguity and risk.
