MSP® is an acronym for Managing Successful Programmes. Taking an MSP course allows you to understand the framework used within the Managing Successful Programmes method whereby large, complex change can be broken down into manageable and inter-related projects.

MSP®, as the name might suggest, is a framework designed to ensure successful programme management. The MSP methodology was formed from the collective expertise and experience of practitioners across a range of industries, sectors and locations, making it a comprehensive yet highly flexible approach. It has been adopted by many organisations within both the public and private sectors. The MSP training courses allows you understand the key elements of the MSP method.

The MSP® framework is popular with program managers and project teams and offers the following benefits:

  • Alignment with business goals
  • A solid structure for achieving program benefits
  • A flexible change management framework
  • Boost stakeholder engagement and participation
  • Achieve changes on time and within budget

Today’s organisations exist in a climate of constant and increasing change. Organisations that have learned how to transform themselves through effective leadership and strategic control are more likely to survive and prosper. Programme management is increasingly being recognised as key to enabling organisations to manage that transformation.

Our MSP® Foundation & Practitioner course is designed to equip you with all the core skills and knowledge you will need to work on Programme Management.
