Managing Successful Programmes Overview

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.

MSP 5th edition is an established best practice programme management framework, designed to align programmes and projects to organizational strategy and enable enterprise agility. MSP focuses on the delivery of outcomes of benefit, while mitigating risk and actively engaging stakeholders.

MSP is a globally recognised programme management methodology from AXELOS Limited who provide a range of best management practice guides, including PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile, MoP and P3O.

FOUNDATION

The Foundation course introduces the MSP method and terminology to ensure participants understand the MSP guidance well enough to work in a team to deliver or manage a programme within an environment supporting MSP.

Participation will enable you to:

  • Improve your mastery of best practice programme management.
  • Establish appropriate programme governance structures that effectively control the work involved, thereby ensuring the creation of value.
  • Design programmes using incremental cycles that allow for multimodal delivery.
  • Effectively engage stakeholders by providing a clear vision and full transparency around the achievement of programme objectives and expected benefits.
PRACTITIONER

The Practitioner course prepares participants to take and pass the MSP Practitioner Exam.

The Practitioner exam is intended to assess whether the candidate can demonstrate sufficient ability to apply and tailor the MSP programme management.

A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the framework to a real programme but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual programme management expertise, the complexity of the programme, and the support provided for the use of MSP in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the practitioner can achieve.

The course includes review, consolidation of concepts and exam questions for the Practitioner level certification. Please note the Practitioner course is an exam preparation course and focuses on the application of MSP to prepare candidates for the Practitioner examination.

KEY TOPICS

Participants will be provided with in-depth knowledge of:

  • The MSP principles, which are continuously applied to achieve value from programme management.
  • The MSP themes, which provide the governance required to ensure the programme is aligned to the principles.
  • The MSP processes, which enable you to manage a programme in an orderly, yet flexible and adaptable way.

Comprehensive preparation for certification exams is also provided.

Trainers use a practical delivery approach to provide participants with a ‘hands-on’, multi-faceted and challenging learning experience. Understanding and recall techniques will be used to provide participants with a solid comprehension of MSP.
