About The Course

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) is a framework for successfully delivering large-scale, transformational change through a dossier of related projects and related activities. It is proven best-practice programme management that helps to make change ‘stick’. It comprises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. A programme is made up of a specific set of projects identified by an organisation that together will deliver some defined objective, or set of objectives, for the organisation. The objectives, or goals, of the programme are typically at a strategic level so that the organisation can achieve benefits and improvements in its business operation.

SkillPoint offers the following MSP® certifications:
• MSP® Foundation, and
MSP® Practitioner.

The MSP Certification Scheme covers the essential skills and knowledge required to develop your programme management capabilities. The MSP Foundation course provides an introduction to the Managing Successful Programmes method and terminology. It provides a good overview of the MSP guidance enabling you to work effectively within, or with, a programme management team supporting MSP.

The accredited MSP® Foundation e-learning course fully prepares you for the foundation examination. It is broken into bite-size sessions, combining leading-edge multimedia and interactive exercises for optimum enjoyment and knowledge retention.

The certification is aimed at current and aspiring project / programme managers, project / programme team members, business change team members as well as professionals from other disciplines who need to understand the terminology and concepts underpinning MSP.
