About The MSP® Practitioner Training Course

This course builds on knowledge learnt in the MSP® Foundation certification, and aims to confirm that the student is prepared to act as an informed member of a program management team, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP® environment. This course focuses on the application of MSP® in program scenarios. The available learning methods – Online Classroom & Bootcamp – utilize personalized exercises and case studies to prepare students for the MSP® Practitioner exam.


Key Learning Features

Upon successful completion of this course, students will understand:

  • 1 Identify additional value as a result of managing the described change as an MSP® programme.
  • 2 Explain each of the MSP® principles, the governance themes and the transformational flow activities.
  • 3 Explain the relationship between the MSP® principles, governance themes, the transformational flow, programme information (documents) and the MSP® defined programme management roles; and apply that understanding.
  • 4 Apply each of the MSP® principles, governance themes and transformational flow processes.
  • 5 Produce or evaluate examples of MSP® programme information (documents).
  • 6 Identify activities that should be undertaken during each of the processes of the transformational flow, together with the accountabilities and responsibilities of each of the defined roles.

Course Audience

  • Programme managers who may have a background in managing projects, but have not previously operated in a transformational change environment.

  • Programme office staff (PMO) wishing to build upon their project management knowledge.
  • Experienced project managers.
  • Business change managers.
  • Senior Responsible Owners (a.k.a. programme executives).
