MSP® 5th Edition Foundation virtual

Go from managing a single project to a set of projects in a programme, with our new virtual MSP 5th Edition Foundation course, which enables you to experience a classroom environment from your very own home.

About the course

Managing Successful Programmes is a framework for successfully delivering large-scale, transformational change through a dossier of related projects and related activities. It provides an adaptable route to facilitating change and reaches its ultimate objectives by bringing together the key elements of governance themes, together with transformational flow processes, all underpinned by common sense principles to enable success.

This three-day virtual course will help prepare you for the MSP 5th Edition Foundation examination. The examination is intended to assess whether you can demonstrate sufficient recall and understanding of the MSP programme management framework.
