This module introduces the Principles, Themes, and Processes of MSP. These will be relevant throughout the Foundation and Practitioner courses.
This module looks at the MSP Theme of ‘Organization’, which deals with leadership, scrutiny, decision-making, and sponsorship. Students learn what role Organization plays in planning and implementing successful programs.
The module introduces the MSP Theme of ‘Design’, which deals with how programs are shaped to clarify the end-state, as well as risks, and benefits. Students will learn what the Theme entails and what kind of role it plays in successful program management.
This module examines the MSP Theme of ‘Justification’ and the role it plays in successful program management initiatives. Through Justification, MSP users guarantee that investing in a program is worthwhile. It also deals with elements such as budgeting and cash-flow management.
This module deals with the MSP Theme of ‘Structure’. This helps users plan how to deliver programs, including how to set the pace of delivering results and how resources such as people, equipment, and facilities are chosen, allocated, and optimized.
This module looks at the MSP Theme of ‘Knowledge’. This deals with how programs acquire, curate, utilize knowledge, and verify the integrity of knowledge. It also looks at how MSP users take lessons from programs and enable continual improvement.
This module introduces the ‘Assurance’ Theme, which deals with roles, responsibilities, and the ‘three lines of defense’. Students also learn how Assurance supports program governance and how to plan Assurance activities.
This module introduces the ‘Decisions’ Theme. Managers need to make decisions throughout a program’s lifecycle, whether for the sake of resolving issues, responding to risk, or anything else. Following the Theme ensures managers have a proven and well-governed approach to decision-making.
This module introduces the Processes of MSP. These guide MSP practitioners through programs, helping them to deliver desired outcomes on time and to an acceptable quality.

‘Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)’ is a program and project management framework. It offers flexible yet comprehensive best practices for planning, instigating, managing, and concluding successful programs, breaking them down into more manageable projects with clearly defined goals.
MSP works by breaking down large and complex programs into more manageable projects. It also provides non-prescriptive best practices for program management, which can be used and adapted in virtually any industry, sector, or location.
The MSP framework describes Themes, Processes, and Principles, which detail how to structure and implement program plans. The best practices and insight of the framework can be adapted to suit any program, regardless of industry, location, sector, or anything else.
The MSP certification path starts with MSP Foundation, before moving on to MSP Practitioner and, finally, MSP Advanced Practitioner.
MSP is flexible and adaptive enough to suit almost any organization or program. It also clarifies goals, lines of communication, and roles, enabling streamlined decision-making and making it easier to complete programs on time and within budget.
Practitioners also continually assess their projects for the sake of risk management and ensuring a focus on the ‘Business Case’.
Due to its adaptable and non-prescriptive nature, almost any organization can use MSP. An MSP qualification can also be highly useful for both aspiring or experienced project or program managers.
