Purpose of this course

This intensive course is an in-depth study of the MSP method and includes the highly valued Practitioner exam.

Who is this course for

Anyone who currently holds the MSP Foundation certificate.

You will learn how to
  • Apply the MSP framework in a programme environment
  • Identify and track benefits
  • Appreciate the importance of an orderly transition in a programme environment
  • Understand the recommended roles and responsibilities advocated by MSP, such as the Senior Responsible Owner and Business Change Manager
Benefits for your organisation

The course relays the importance of an orderly management of change which, in a programme environment, is especially difficult to achieve. In particular, the course will focus on transition (preparing for it, enacting it and then, once it has occurred, realising benefits). A significant focus of the course is on benefits realisation: how claimed benefits must be properly tested for their validity and, if they are valid, how to make more likely the chance of them being realised.

Benefits for you as an individual

The course will help the delegate to manage a complex change environment. Attendees will appreciate the different perspectives that are germane to risk management, how stakeholders can be identified and engaged, how to prepare for transition and how benefits should be identified and evaluated.
