Course Description:

The Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) Practitioner Course provides an opportunity to learn how MSP can be applied to real live programmes and it prepares participants for the MSP Practitioner examination.

This level aims to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment.

The course is entirely focused at applying MSP in programme scenarios. Exercises will be based on the participants own experience, and a case study with a similar format used in the APM Group Practitioner Exam. This case study will be used to test the thorough understanding of the application of MSP.
