Programme Management is the discipline of managing a series of related projects, known collectively as a programme.

The successful management of a programme requires a specific set of leadership and management skills that go beyond the discipline of project management.

The internationally recognised Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) course focuses on the key skills and knowledge required by programme managers to effectively deliver a successful programme.

Particular attention is paid to the challenges that are often encountered by programme managers.

MSP® is used as the best practise methodology for managing programmes by the Office of Government Commerce (UK) and the United Nations.

This course will be delivered through Insights, an APMG accredited training organisation.
