MSP® training programmes

First up, our Managing Successful Programmes course, or MSP for short.

Who is the MSP course for?

Training in MSP is suited to a whole host of roles, including but not limited to newly appointed Programme Managers, programme office staff and experienced Project Managers.

The advanced MSP training can also benefit Programme Directors, Business Change Managers and Change Auditors, as it couples practical experience with the theory of MSP, to fully encompass the delegate’s understanding of real-world application.

Benefits of MSP

Our MSP training will arm delegates with the knowledge and understanding of the MSP method at a strategic level, allowing them to contribute and make improvements at their organisation. It provides the framework to effectively manage transformational change, and ensure processes are applied appropriately to suit the organisation’s circumstances.

P3O® certification courses

Next up, P3O! The P3O model is a structure covering Portfolio, Programme and Project Office guidance, and is aligned with our other best practice courses – PRINCE2®, MSP and M_o_R. It brings together a set of principles, processes, and techniques to facilitate effective portfolio, programme, and project management.

The P3O guidance provides a structure which enables effective decision making and project delivery for all change transformations. The training is designed to ensure delegates understand the structure and reasons for establishing a P3O model. It covers roles, tools, and techniques along with the processes that enable business change to remain aligned with corporate strategic objectives.

Who is the P3O course for?

Suited to organisations large and small alike, the Foundation and Practitioner courses are ideal for SROs/Programme Directors or Managers, Portfolio/Programme/Project Office Managers and support staff.

Benefits of P3O

During the course, delegates will gain knowledge of the internationally recognised best practice terminology, structure, basic concepts, and core principles of P3O. Adopting P3O offers a host of benefits, from developing decision-making processes to helping candidates achieve strategic objectives.

APMG-International Change Management™ training

Who is APMG-Change Management courses for?

The Change Management course is ideal for Change Leaders, Change Managers, and change support teams. But it’s also perfectly suited to those who are involved in the implementation of change transformations such as Project, Programme and Portfolio Managers, as the training compliments the PRINCE2 and MSP courses.

Benefits of Change Management

By the end of training, delegates will understand the impacts of change on individuals, the organisation, and its stakeholders. They will develop insights into the drivers of change, change models and processes, and best practice in preparing for change. Beyond this, the courses cover how to establish and apply appropriate frameworks, how to build an impactful strategy for organisational change, and building and supporting an effective change team.

Change Management training can help individuals understand the why and how of adopting change. By improving their understanding, they become better equipped to handle change within the organisation which, in turn, helps a company reduce the risk of failure or delay during change implementation.

MoP® courses

Finally, our Management of Portfolios (MoP) training sets the foundations of MoP knowledge and how to practically apply these skills. MoP guidance covers the principles, practices and techniques which help optimise an organisations portfolio management. The qualification teaches individuals how portfolio management differs from project and programme management, the principles upon which portfolio management is based, the key roles involved, and more.

The certification is aimed at those in portfolio management roles, and those involved in the selection and delivery of business change initiatives. This includes, but isn’t limited to SROs, Directors of Change, Business Case Writers, and Project/Programme Managers.

Benefits of MoP

Upon completion of the course, delegates will be able to define the business case in order to get senior management approval for portfolio management. They will also gain the ability to analyse solutions, and plan the implementation of portfolio management. Becoming qualified will allow individuals and organisations to answer whether an investment is right for them, i.e. does it contribute to strategic objectives? And if so, to manage its implementation effectively, considering risk and ensuring efficient delivery.
