About The Course

Substantial risk is involved in carrying out complex, difficult and often unclear major changes to the way an organisation operates. ‘Managing Successful Programmes’ (MSP) is a principles, governance themes and process based approach founded on Best Practice for use when managing a programme. Programmes are more than just the ‘sum of their parts’, in other words they need to ‘add value’ over their constituent projects. This leads to the inevitable conclusion that such a major ‘transformational’ change needs something over and above standard project management in order to make such a major change ‘stick’, and thereby realise benefits which are of strategic importance to the organisation. Managing Successful Programmes Practitioner is for those delegates who have already passed the Foundation level qualification.The course equips delegates with a realistic and practical opportunity to consolidate their understanding of the MSP method, including its structure, processes, and governance themes together with a range of management documents to aid progress through the programme lifecycle. 

This course includes, but is not limited to: 

Introduction & principles Governance themes 
Transformational flow processes including:
Identifying the aim of the programme & envisaged benefits to the organisation

different afterwards
Managing the tranches to establish and run the programme
Delivering the capability to monitor and coordinate the projects

activities
