What is Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)?
Courses in Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) go beyond teaching delegates how to deliver outputs from projects. Training in MSP instructs skills and techniques for co-ordinating delivery from multiple projects or staged delivery from very large projects, when the delegate needs a layer of control above and beyond project management.
MSP can, however, be used to achieve much more. Transformational change comes about when we exploit the capability inherent in project outputs. In business as usual we need to achieve outcomes and deliver benefits that are of strategic importance.
MSP allows us to plan to achieve outcomes and benefits with the wider stakeholder community and then pace the delivery from projects to allow optimal change within business as usual.
MSP course delivery methods
Managing Successful Programmes training can come in a vast range of formats to suit you and your organisation.
After you have found a course that meets your needs, ask the course provider for more information about their course teaching methods. For instance, coaches and trainers can come to your office (in-house training), you can attend an open course with delegates from other companies or you can take an online/distance course.
Points to consider regarding your Managing Successful Programmes course are:
- Where will the course be held? In-company, in the student's home, at one of the course providers’ locations, or online?
- How will the course be run?
- Can the course accommodate your specific industry?
- Will the expected finishing level of the course match your requirements?
- What qualifications does your course teacher have?
- What experience does your teacher have in your professional area?
- What opportunities for organised social interaction for continued learning are provided?

MSP Training - Know your own skill level and your own goals
Before taking an MSP course, consider your own proficiency and your ability and confidence to manage these functions in daily or business situations. The other essential consideration before deciding on training is to know your needs.
Take into account the project management areas you wish to improve in and note down any specific requirements you have in your role. Browse the different course proficiency levels and talk to the course providers about your own sales goals and if they can focus on your professional area.
Whatever your needs, you can be confident that the right content in your project management training or course will soon have you meeting your objectives.

What is involved in project management?
Effective project managers are required for a project to be successful. Such a project manager guides the project through all its stages, from start-up / analysis / development through to execution / monitoring and project closure.
Demand for these successful project managers is increasing and there is now a large number of project management courses available. While some project management courses focus on the supervisor's role and are industry non-specific, other courses are customisable for specific industries or even towards specific projects.

Projects and project management
Formally defined, a project is a temporary effort to produce a unique product, service or service. In other words, a project is a temporary effort to achieve a specific objective. The project manager is responsible for achieving the goals.
With a successful project, the project’s budget is not exceeded, the project’s goals are met, employees are motivated and the project’s deadline is met. With a project manager course, delegates can learn to deliver a successful project.
Depending on the goals, expectations, budget and timeframe, certain projects will be easier, harder, longer or shorter than others. For an inexperienced project manager, it might be very difficult to bring together all the pieces and ensure that all stakeholders are pleased with the end result.
