The full MSP 5 day course is too intensive for some. It may be your job does not require you to have the in depth understanding provided by that course. Or, it may be your learning style is better suited to absorbing complex matters such as this in 2 parts. The Foundation course is specially designed with such needs in mind. Those who need to take their learning further can attend the MSP Practitioner Follow On Course.

Attendance on this workshop will enable delegates to:
  • Develop a basic understanding of the components, processes, products and techniques of MSP
  • Have confidence and competence to help with and support the method in the live environment
  • Develop their knowledge of the material and undertake the MSP Foundation examination
At the end of the workshop, the delegate will be able to
  • Comprehend the fundamentals of using and tailoring MSP
  • Navigate the MSP material to maximise its usage as a working tool in the live environment
The MSP Foundation examination is included within the course timetable.

This is an introductory workshop providing realistic and practical skills consolidation. 
The format of the event is highly interactive and designed to present the information in memorable, manageable segments. Through the use of exercises which mimic the Foundation examination format, delegates will be given full opportunity to test their understanding of MSP.
Like the OGC Prince2 Project Management standard, MSP is designed to be implemented in a tailored fashion. Any organisation or individual seeing the need for a controlled approach to managing its programmes will benefit from an understanding of the MSP methodology.
Delegates will be provided with comprehensive supporting material.
