Don’t get left behind…

Programme Management is a vital component in the delivery of strategic / business initiative and change. Delivering the right benefits and outcomes from change requires a structured framework to co-ordinate, communicate, align, manage and control the activities involved. Programme Management provides this framework through organisation, processes, inputs, outputs and a focus on strategic thinking.

Examples of strategic programmes are:

  • Organisation mergers and integration programmes
  • Major new business line launches
  • Large or complex multi-functional IT Projects
  • Major restructuring/corporate re-engineering
  • Major cost reduction initiatives

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) is a globally recognised programme management methodology from AXELOS Limited. AXELOS provides a range of Best Management Practice guides, including PRINCE2®, MoP® and P3O®.

About this Course

Due to popular demand, we are now offering MSP weekend training.

Foundation Course Objectives

The Foundation course aims to certify participants in MSP, the leading programme management method. Participation confirms the vital role of effective Programme Management in:

  • Identifying and ensuring delivery of real benefits to the end-users of products and services
  • Ensuring that stakeholder expectations at required levels are appropriately set, managed and maintained
  • Managing the crucial links and interdependencies between projects in a programme environment

Practitioner Course Objectives

The Practitioner course prepares participants to undertake and pass the MSP Practitioner Examination.  The Practitioner level qualification aims to measure whether the candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to apply and tailor it to a given scenario situation.

The course includes review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions for the Practitioner level certification.

Please note that the Practitioner course is an examination preparation course and focuses on the application of MSP to prepare candidates for the Practitioner examination.

What is the difference between a Weekend package course and a Weekday package course?

Our weekend course format is slightly different to the weekday format, in that the course runs over 2 weekends (4 days) as opposed to the traditional 5 days. The way we work around this is:

  • Weekend courses require additional pre-reading and homework exercises.
  • The weekend days generally run from 8am-6pm
  • The exams are included as normal however we run the Foundation exam at 8am on the 2nd weekend (Practitioner weekend)
  • We continue with the Practitioner course, the exam is completed on Sunday afternoon
