Course Information

MSP® Overview

The Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)® Overview classroom course provides delegates with the skills required to use MSP® within business strategy in order to meet objectives and goals. MSP® is a framework for delivering best-practice in the coordination and management of business programmes. It presents a set of guiding principles and processes that can be used to support the coordination of smaller projects that comprise a programme, thus making meeting objectives more probable.


Delegates will gain an understanding of the core MSP principles, processes, and themes of this framework, and the importance of its use within a shifting business environment. In addition, this course aims to allow delegates to grasp the importance of coordinating the smaller projects that incorporate a single programme, and how to ensure that the programme is beneficial to the business.
