MSP®-Managing Successful Programmes Online


MSP® – Managing Successful Programmes is designed to assist organizations in delivering large-scale change and provides those responsible for programme management with a best practice approach applicable to any type of organizational programme. It is an internationally accredited qualification and is designed to lift the game of practicing and aspiring programme managers, teaching them more about the leadership required rather than just the management skills.

This qualification is aimed at those involved in a range of portfolio management roles encompassing investment decision making, the selection and delivery of business change initiatives, project and programme delivery and benefits realization.


MSP® – Managing Successful Programmes is an advanced programme management framework for delivering the business benefits required from major change, while addressing the need for sensible governance and control over multiple projects.

A programme can only do well if the projects within it succeed. The concept of a programme is that it should be more than the ‘sum of its parts’. In other words, without Programme Management the projects would probably still be able to deliver their particular outputs but these would not be co-ordinated or integrated in a way that will achieve the strategic goals.

Our MSP® online learning has been fully accredited and the e-learning contains all the training and materials required to attain both the Foundation and Practitioner qualifications from anywhere in the world without entering a classroom. This study will be a mixture of computer-based training using interactive multimedia training, videos, reference to the MSP® Handbook, as well as completion of practical tasks using MSP® project simulation and mock exams. This highly interactive course is delivered through a truly collaborative online e-learning platform, ideal for organisations with a global reach.
