The MSP Training Course
MSP the training course is one of the best in the world and will provide anyone with a good career in front of them
The MSP Training course which teaches individuals how to Manage Successful Programmes has gained in popularity over recent years for many reasons, mainly due to its professional stance when looking at how programmes function.
Prior to the MSP training course, individuals will have to prepare themselves by doing 15 hours of pre-course work in order to understand the basics of the course. This work will include the reading of the MSP manual, practising mock exam questions and reading over the course syllabus. This will take around 15 hours as the MSP manual is around 300 pages.
On the first day of the training course individuals will re-cap on what they have learnt from the pre –course reading and have a refresher on it. If there is anything they didn’t understand then this would get covered thoroughly until all individuals on the course are 100% sure what each point means. The course will then move onto the actual MSP content which is divided into 2 sections; governance themes and programme processes. This is then divided further into programme management and business change activities. The course is divided into sections in order to ensure all individuals understand each section before moving onto another. Throughout the first day of the training course delegates will cover; how to identify a programme, programme organisation and roles, vision, blueprint design and deliver and finally leadership and stakeholder engagement.
As you can see each day, individuals will learn a great deal of information.
On the second day of the MSP training course delegates will go over in detail any homework they were set the night before with one another and ensure they understood the questions and more importantly got the answer correct. Once this is accomplished, students will then cover the following topics; managing the tranches, business case, risk and issue management, quality management, benefit realisation and finally realising the benefits of MSP. By the third day of the training course delegates will be expected to go through in detail the remainder of the syllabus which involves; delivering the capabilities, planning and control; which is the largest part of the syllabus and will take up most of the day, along with learning how to close a programme.
During the fourth day of the course there will be practise exam papers which will be gone through in class in order to acquaint everyone with the structure of the paper and style of the exam questions. On the fifth and final day of the MSP course the exam will be taken which will last two and a half hours. The exam paper is around 10 pages with 80 questions to answer; 40 must be answered correctly in order to pass.
The results of the exam should be posted to the delegates within 14 days and hopefully we will have another MSP practitioner in the world!
