MSP® 4th Edition Foundation & Practitioner classroom

Managing Successful Programmes is a framework for successfully delivering large-scale, transformational change through a dossier of related projects and related activities. It is proven best-practice programme management that helps to make change ‘stick’.

About the course

Whilst not being prescriptive it is flexible to the needs of local circumstances. 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 is a five-day course which includes both the Foundation and Practitioner examinations.
