Benefits

Two reasons why ‘Managing Successful Programmes’ (MSP) is making such an impact across the world:

1. It is providing a robust, proven framework for major transformational change across the world. Participants leave this course equipped to lead and engage with major change of any kind. For example, MSP was used to outstanding success by the London Olympics Delivery Authority to deliver the Olympic Park on time.

2. The MSP Guide represents scores of man years experience, helping you make sense of major changes in your organisation, and how best to lead and manage them. As MSP is unpacked on the course, it may encourage you – as it has done many others – to discover that much of what you have been doing is valid, but it also helps you see the ‘bigger picture’ of transformational change. It helps you identify areas you may have neglected that could provide you with high leverage back at the office.

Features

This modular MSP Practitioner course follows exactly the same syllabus as our standard five day course. However, in order to accommodate those delegates who for business or other reasons may find it difficult to devote 5 consecutive days to their training we offer this modular option, where the four days of training plus the examination can be split over a number of weeks and on different days if required.

This programme will cover each part of the MSPTransformational Flow, Governance, Themes and documents described in the MSP Guide.  You’ll work through various case studies during the course as well as sample examination papers; examination tips and preparation, for the MSP.

• The MSP Principles, the means to tailor intelligently the framework to any programme
• The Programme Vision, and how this helps drive the programme and its engagement with the stakeholders
• Leadership and stakeholder engagement, concepts and techniques to help lead the wide range of people involved and affected by any transformational change
• Creating and implementing a delivery architecture
• Realising benefits, including identifying modelling and measuring key benefits
• Planning, tracking and keeping a programme aligned with strategy
• The programme business case, how it is adapted and helps coordinate the projects
• Managing the transition to business operations, one of the most critical activities in driving up benefits
Foundation and Practitioner Examinations

Engaging and creative activities include our Floor Map exercise, where you will find you can master key chunks of MSP by building it together with the rest of the class. Also our Integration Game helps you and the other course participants gain fluency through exploring relationships and stories between different elements. This builds your pre-exam confidence in a way that few conventional exercises can.A running case study shows you how to apply different elements.

Many other approved MSP training providers require you to go through explanation and understanding of the Foundation curriculum first, but we find that this can lead to a dry and tedious ‘cramming’ of the subject matter. Instead, we coach at both Foundation and Practitioner levels from the start, providing you with a richer learning experience by applying in realistic situations all the way through. Our Foundation pass rate validates this approach - in the most recent set of statistics from the APMG, 100% of candidates passed their MSP Foundation with pearcemayfield.
