Description

Helps you get an appreciation of and become an informed member of a project and programme environment.


This course provides you with an overview of Programme Management.

The Managing Successful Programmes(MSP) guidance explains the programme management principles, governance themes and transformational flow that should be applied to the management of programmes or transformational change in any environment.


There are two levels of qualifications within the MSPProgramme Management certification scheme – Foundation and Practitioner.

This package covers Introduction level study, further Foundation and Practitioner levels available for upgrade as and when you wish to progress to the next level.

The purpose of the foundation qualification is to determine whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSPguidance to interact effectively with those involved in the management of a programme or act as an informed member of a programme office, business change team or project delivery team working within an environment supportingMSP. The foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the practitioner qualification.

The purpose of the practitioner qualification is to determine whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSPguidance to apply the guidance to their own work and, hence, act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an Programme environment. Candidates should be capable of applying the guidance in a relatively uncomplicated programme within an environment that uses Programme Management.
