Course description

MSP® Foundation and Practitioner e-learning with both Exams

Programme Management methods and frameworks are evolving faster than ever. This is occurring in order to keep pace with the growing needs of public and private organisations to deliver better project outcomes and benefits. This rapid evolution has expressed itself in recent years in the following ways:-

  • A demand for formally qualified Programme Managers.
  • Rising salariesfor qualified Programme Management Professionals.

Just take a quick look at job boards like Jobserve and you will salaries in the range of £60,000 to £120,000 per annum.

Today's organizations exist in a climate of constant and increasing change. Organizations that have learned how to transform themselves through effective leadership and strategic control are more likely to survive and prosper. Programme management and the MSP framework is increasingly being recognized as key to enabling organizations to manage that transformation.

Where there is major change there will be complexity, risk, many inter-dependencies to manage and conflicting priorities to resolve. Organizations are unlikely to be able to deliver change successfully where:

  • There is insufficient board-level support
  • Leadership is weak
  • There are unrealistic expectations of the organizational capacity and capability to change
  • There is inadequate focus on benefits
  • There is no real picture of the future capability
  • There is a poorly defined or poorly communicated vision
  • The organization fails to change culture
  • There is not enough engagement of stakeholders.

This MSP online training course is specifically intended for those with busy schedules that require the flexibility to study in their own time.
