Course Information

MSP® Foundation Course Overview

This Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)® Foundation training course, delivered by expert trainers, supplies delegates with the MSP® framework for managing programmes. The course aims to provide delegates with the ability to understand the basics of MSP® methodology.

The aim of this course is to make clear to trainees that there is a set of guiding principles and processes that can be used to support the coordination of smaller projects which comprise a programme, thus making meeting objectives more probable. Furthermore, it distinctly describes how to interact with teams involved in programme management, or as part of a programme office team, project team, or business change team, who work within an environment underpinned by MSP®. Earning this certification demonstrates to employers that you possess knowledge of best practice in programme management.
