Officially launched in 1999, “Managing Successful Programmes” (MSP®) is a guide that provides and maintains a strategic view over the set of projects, aligning and co -ordinating them within a programme of business change in support of specific business strategies.
Who is the course designed for?
Any organisation or individual seeing the need for a controlled approach to managing its programmes. The event is suitable for programme managers, experienced project managers, programme support team members and senior managers from any discipline. The Managing Successful Programmes method is flexible and adaptable for any type and size of programme where a business "vision" is the required outcome.
What are the course objectives?
The key objectives of this course are: Provide Delegates with an understanding of the benefits and principles underlying a structured approach to programme management. Apply the principles of MSP® to a programme within a work environment. Operate effectively with colleagues and managers within a structured programme and project management environment. Enable delegates to understand the MSP® framework to be prepared to sit the accredited MSP® Foundation and Practitioner exams. Success in the Foundation & Practitioner Exams provides candidates with the pre- requisites required to sit the MSP® Advanced Practitioner exam (separate course).
What is the course approach?
We offer 3-day Foundation and 5-day Practitioner course options. The courses include a mixture of input and practical sessions, delivered by an APM Group approved trainer with practical experience of project and programme management. The pre-course material includes highly acclaimed event preparation CD and the MSP® Manual. Delegates should spend approximately 10 hours studying this pre-course material in order to be well prepared for the course.
The flexible approach to the course means that delegates can attend the Foundation course and then return at a later date to complete the Practitioner exam.
