MSP® 4th Edition Advanced Practitioner classroom

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) is a structured framework representing proven programme management best practice in successfully delivering transformational change.

About the course

This is an intensive workshop-based examination session where delegates’ practical experience is coupled with the theory of MSP, to give a realistic understanding of real-world application. This workshop concentrates on the application of the delegates' previously acquired MSP knowledge and will involve working, both individually and as a group, through the designated MSP case study.


Two day classroom course with the exam on day two.


Delegates attending this course must have successfully passed the MSP Practitioner examinations before attending this workshop. There is some mandatory  pre-course reading and activities to complete which will be sent prior to the event.

This is an intensive two-day course that includes the following:

  • All accompanying course material
  • The cost of the MSP Advanced Practitioner examination (the exam is taken on the last day of the course)

Refreshments will also be provided throughout the duration of your training.

Important - The MSP Official manual is not included with this course but is essential to complete your all elements of your course including pre-course. If you dont have the current version of the manual you can opt to purchase once you have selected your chosen date in the checkout area, or from our bookstore here.


What's covered?

The course follows the standard syllabus for the Advanced Practitioner qualification  and will put particular emphasis on the interconnections of the Governance Themes  and the Transformational Flow processes, as well as considering how the principles of MSP could be applied in different situations. You will work through a set case study during the workshop as well as sample examination papers and exercises. Delegates will gain effective insights and tips for  the examination, making them fully prepared for the MSP Advanced Practitioner examination on the afternoon of the second day.
