Kursavgift: kr 12 900 | Varighet: 2 dager PDU=21


The Managing Successful Programs (MSP®) Practitioner Course provides an opportunity to learn how MSP can be applied to real live programs and prepares participants for the MSP Practitioner examination.

This level is aiming to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to act as an informed member of a program management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment.

The course is entirely focused at applying MSP in program scenarios. Exercises will be based on a case study with a similar format to that used in the APM Group Practitioner Exam. This case study will be used to test the thorough understanding of the application of MSP.

At the end of this course, participants will gain competencies in / the ability to:
  • Identify additional value as a result of managing the described change as an MSP program.
  • Explain each of the MSP principles, the governance themes and the transformational flow activities.
  • Explain the relationship between the MSP principles, governance themes, the transformational flow, program information (documents) and the MSP defined program management roles and can apply that understanding.
  • Apply each of the MSP principles, governance themes and transformational flow processes.
  • Produce or evaluate examples of MSP program information (documents).
  • 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.
  • Understand which management products are input to, output from, and updated in each of the six transformational flow processes.
  • Pass the Practitioner exam./


  • Program Managers who may have a background in managing projects, but have not previously operated in a transformational change environment./li>
  • Senior Managers who will “sponsor” the change, or perhaps be held accountable for its success.
  • Program Office Staff (PMO) wishing to build upon their project management knowledge.
  • Experienced Project Managers.
  • BCMs
  • SROs
  • Other specialist/governance roles involved in supporting programs following the MSP guidance together with those wishing to pursue higher level qualifications (e.g., program managers).


  • Participants must have passed the MSP Foundation examination.
  • Participants should ideally have experience of managing or working in programs prior to attending. Knowledge of the PRINCE2® project management method is advantageous, but by no means mandatory. Some exposure to a project management method will aid understanding of how the program works with these projects.
