MSP Foundation and Practitioner (classroom)

Course Code: MSPFPC

Duration: 5 days

‘Managing Successful Programmes’ represents proven Best Practice programme management
and is a framework for successfully delivering large scale, so called, transformational change
through a dossier of related projects and related activities to make the change ‘stick’.

Whilst not being prescriptive it is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances. It provides an adaptable route to facilitating change and reaches its ultimate objectives by bringing together the key elements of governance themes, together with transformational flow
processes, all underpinned by common sense principles to enable success.
