Course Description

Course Overview

What is MSP®?
Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) represents proven programme management good practice in the successful delivery of transformational change through the application of programme management. 
MSP has been used and adopted within many organizations both within the public and private sectors. The experiences of those who have adopted programme management have provided invaluable inputs into the core publication, ‘Managing Successful Programmes’.
It provides a framework whereby large, complex change can be broken down into manageable, inter-related projects. For those managing this overall delivery the principles of programme management are key to delivering on time and within budget.
Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) comprises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. It is founded on best practice although it is not prescriptive. It is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.

  • Steve Ditty

       I wanted to let you know that I took and passed the PMP exam. Thanks to iCert Global and especially my Cincinnati course instructor, who was an excellent teacher and helped me immensely.  



  • Nancy Davis

       I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this training. Yomi was awesome as a trainer and working to make sure that we understood the concepts. Controlling Cost and Controlling Risk are the most complicated, but Yomi spent time after class working through questions to help others understand. This class also helped to change my perception of the PMP being this MONSTER to something that I can I can successfully do.  






  • Taylor Mitchell

       I thought the class was very informative. The instructor did an excellent job breaking down each chapter to where it was easy to understand. I was also very impressed with his commitment to help us pass ever after the class is over.  










  • Quentin Cheeks

       I really enjoyed how thorough trainer was with the course information and taking time to elaborate on areas that may have been somewhat confusing. He did a tremendous job in making sure that we knew what would possibly be on the exam and ensuring our confidence to take the exam within the next few months. Overall, I thought the course was great and trainer was exceptional in his teaching of the curriculum.
