Course Information

Overview

Managing Successful Programmes training course and certification provides delegates with a structured framework (for organizations of all sizes and from all sectors) to improve practices, offer better services and more effectively prepare for the future.

Programme management using Managing Successful Programmes creates a framework that enables the organization to align the delivery of programmes and projects to organizational strategy; and to focus on the delivery of outcomes and benefits, while mitigating risks and actively engaging stakeholders at all levels. MSP can be used in conjunction with all the other best-practice products (such as PRINCE2 and MoP) and international or internal organizational standards.

The purpose of the MSP training is to confirm whether you understand the MSP guidance well enough to apply it to your own work and are able to act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone who is responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment. You should also be capable of applying the MSP guidance in a relatively uncomplicated programme within an environment that uses Managing Successful Programmes.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) qualifications have helped hundreds of thousands of professionals globally enhance their skills and achieve their professional ambitions. Professionals holding MSP accreditations stand a better chance of being invited for an interview and definitely stand a better chance being offered a role afterwards.
Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) certifications can be a very valuable addition to the list of professional qualifications and accreditations which can help achieve professional growth within organisations, without a need to switch jobs/ employers.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) has been and will remain in demand within wider programme management profession today and for coming years.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) trainings and certifications are more suitable for professionals with at least 3-5 years of experience in project and programme management. However, some organisations prefer to hire PMO/ PSO support staff who have MSP qualifications.

While MSP exams are relatively hard, with right level of attention and focus one can pass both exams. MSP is not rocket science and anyone with focused training and devotion can definitely achieve success in both exams.

It is absolutely possible to achieve MSP exam(s) success while relying on self study. However, high standard MSP training can accelerate the process, along with exam success probability, for sure.

MSP Foundation & Practitioner certifications are considered to be professional qualifications only. These qualifications are widely recognized and sought after globally, however, they are not the same as a college or university degree. Some quarters believe that MSP Practitioner qualification is equivalent to UK NQF 6/7 - Tecknologia has no grounds to confirm this.

There is no negative marking in MSP exams. No marks are deducted for a wrong answer.

Both MSP Foundation and Practitioner certifications have validity of 3 years from issuance date. Candidate must retake both exams within 3 years to maintain their certifications. Alternatively, candidates can log Continuous Professional Development points (CPDs) over three years, via paid PeopleCert membership, to maintain certifications.

MSP is the acronym for Managing Successful Programmes and it is a level above project management. Though programmes have relationships with projects planning, initiating, executing, monitoring, controlling and closing, MSP is more concerned with programme level itself rather than project within the container.
Projects are within a programme and not the other way around, similarly project and project management are part MSP and not the other way around.
