MSP® – Managing Successful Programmes

MSP: Managing Successful Programmes is designed to assist organizations in delivering large scale change and provides those responsible for programme management with a best practice approach applicable to any type of organizational programme.

It is an internationally accredited qualification and designed to lift the game of practicing and aspiring programme managers, teaching them more about the leadership required rather than just the management skills.



Managing Successful Programmes is an advanced programme management framework for delivering the business benefits required from major change, while addressing the need for sensible governance and control over multiple projects.

A programme is made up of a set of projects and other activities identified by an organization. Together these will deliver some defined strategic level objectives that will enable benefit realization and a substantial change in the business.

A programme can only do well if the projects within it succeed. The concept of a programme is that it should be more than the ‘sum of its parts’. In other words, without Programme Management the projects would probably still be able to deliver their particular outputs but these would not be co-ordinated or integrated in a way that will achieve the strategic goals.


This event is a special learning experience with tons of practical sessions and individual and team exercises that encourage active delegate participation. Managing Successful Programmes is facilitated by one of Snap Tech’s internationally accredited and highly experienced trainer consultants..


The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to determine whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to interact effectively with those involved in the management of a programme or act as an informed member of a programme office, business change team or project delivery team working within an environment supporting MSP. The foundation qualification is also a pre-requisite for the practitioner qualification.
