MSP is specifically designed to address the most common challenges that organizations encounter when leading investments in change. It is designed to align programmes and projects to organizational strategy and to provide governance. It focuses on the outcomes of benefits, whilst mitigating risks and actively engaging stakeholders.

MSP 5th edition emphasizes more on flexibility, adaptability, and responsiveness by adopting an incremental approach to the programme lifecycle and thus enabling organizational agility.

MSP 5th edition Foundation is for individuals that are interested in learning how to manage multiple projects and programmes successfully. The course provides the theoretical knowledge of how to plan, manage, and deliver programmes from start to finish.

MSP Foundation Certification is targeted towards the candidates who work in the business change team, or project delivery team working within an environment supporting MSP.

What will I Learn?

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor MSP® in a business scenario. A successful foundation candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of MSP in their work environment will all be factoring that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
