MSP Training and Certification

MSP Training and Certification

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) includes universal principles, in that they apply to every programme. They are self-validating as they have been proven in practice, and they are empowering, because they give practitioners of this framework added ability to influence and shape transformational change towards success. The principles are:

  • Remaining aligned with corporate strategy
  • Leading change
  • Envisioning and communicating a better future
  • Focusing on the benefits and threats to them
  • Adding value
  • Designing and delivering a coherent capability
  • Learning from experience

MSP® Certification Benefits

Since SPOCE ran the world’s first MSP Programme Management course in March 2000, more than 100,000 exams have been taken.

SPOCE can provide MSP® project programme management training to individuals looking to improve their programme management skills on one of our open public MSP training courses. However, if there are 4 or more delegates within an organisation looking to take the course, SPOCE can offer more cost-effective onsite MSP training courses.

MSP® Programme Management course aims to:

  • Provide industry referenced standards
  • Provide a framework of best practice principles and concepts drawn from latest experiences and proven practice
  • Help practitioners improve their decision making and to become better at implementing beneficial change
  • Enable individuals to demonstrate their level of knowledge and understanding of the each product by obtaining a globally recognised qualification (MSP® Programme Management Foundation, &MSP® Programme Management Practitioner)

What Are The Course Objectives?

The key objectives of the MSP® Foundation & Practitioner course are:

Provide Delegates with an understanding of the benefits and principles underlying a structured approach to programme management
Apply the principles of MSP® to a programme within a work environment

Success in the Foundation & Practitioner Exams provides candidates with the pre-requisites required to sit the MSP® Advanced Practitioner exam (separate course – please see MSP Advanced Practitioner course).

What Is The Course Approach?

The courses include a mixture of input and practical sessions, delivered by an APM Group approved trainer with practical experience of project and programme management.

Change Management Practitioner Course

About Change Management

This course focuses on the practical aspects of effective change management as it relates to change and the individual, change and the organization, communications and stakeholder engagement and change management practice. This is an intense course that involves both pre-course and evening study during the course. The course is entirely complementary to formal portfolio, programme and project management approaches (such as MOP®, MSP© , and PRINCE2©) but knowledge of these approaches is not a pre-requisite for attendance.

Through study of selected sections of The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook the course provides a practical and informative pathway of understanding through the maze of principles, theories and the practice of change management. It gives a solid platform for clear best practice thinking and the application of a range of proven change management tools and techniques for achieving successful change.

Who is this Course Designed For?

This course is ideal for staff and teams involved in all aspects of change management; those leading or about to lead and manage a change programme; those seeking a recognized, internationally accredited, Foundation and Practitioner qualification; change team members affected by or effecting change; individuals who will need to support their colleagues, team and organisation through change, and manage themselves through change.

Course Pre-Requisites

Some previous experience of change management or programme/project management would be useful but is not essential. There is some recommended precourse reading and preparation together with evening work during the course.
We specialise in delivery of tailored, in-house courses: we will tailor the learning around your current or planned change programme, to provide practical guidance and support to help you to make change successful.

Course Approach

SPOCE offer this course as 3 day Foundation and 5 day Foundation and Practitioner options.
This is the 3 day Foundation course and is a mixture of input and practical sessions teaching to the APM Group ‘Foundation-level’ syllabus, delivered by an APMG approved trainer with practical experience of change management. The course incorporates the APM Group Foundation exam, but includes additional focus on the application of the method using application-level tasks in order to add value and help delegates better understand how to apply the concepts of Change Management, as well as be better prepared if they ever choose to go on to take the Practitioner-level exam in the future.

 

The Foundation exam is taken near the end of the last day, after all of the Change Management elements have been sufficiently covered.

Delegates should spend approximately 4-6 hours studying the pre-course material to be well prepared for the course.

Course Objectives

By attending this course, you will:

 

  • Achieve an internationally recognised APMGInternational qualification.
  • Learn from the experts, all of whom, are experienced change management practitioners.
  • Gain a clear, practical understanding of the implications and impacts of change on people and organizations.
  • Gain knowledge and understanding of how to support people through change.
