Managing Successful Programmes

Like PRINCE2®, Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) is an integral part of the Office of Government Commerce’s (OGC) Best Practice portfolio. The MSP® approach focuses on managing change and delivering business benefits from a set of related projects.

Find our full range of accredited MSP® courses here.


Programme Management:

Programme management is becoming increasingly important as a means of coordinating a group of projects into a focused delivery effort. MSP® covers the detailed definition of the programme, the management of the project portfolio, through to the delivery and realisation of measurable business benefits. With its emphasis on stakeholder engagement and benefit realisation, MSP® also allows an organisation to maintain a clear link between the programme and its strategic vision.



On 3rd May 2014 the APMG reported that our MSP® Practitioner pass rate was 95.45% with the overall average pass rate being 85.64% nationally. We offer a flexible route to MSP® certification through our 5 day courses in Bath which includes the MSP® Foundation, MSP® Foundation and Practitioner and MSP® Practitioner Workshop modules and examinations. Delegates may attend the full 5 day course or just the 3 day Foundation and return later for the Practitioner workshop.


No Pre-Course Study:

Like our PRINCE2® courses we don’t ask you to do any significant pre-course study if you attend a Benchmark MSP® course. And again, we’re prepared to back this up with our exam promise. However, the course is intensive and you will be required to do some evening work (about 1.5 hours per evening) to consolidate your learning.


Rooted in the Real World:

Our MSP courses are delivered by practising programme managers. They will go out of their way to explain what MSP® really means in straightforward, pragmatic terms with real-life examples. A realistic case study linked to our PRINCE2® case study is used throughout the course.
