Download Course Outline

Officially launched in October 1999, "Managing Successful Programmes" (MSP®) is a guide that maintains a strategic view over a set of projects, aligning them to the required business change in order to realise benefits of strategic importance to the business.

The Practitioner Upgrade/Examination Preparation event provides an opportunity to apply learning of the MSP® methodology to programme scenarios. The scenarios used on this event are in the same format to those used in the APM Group Practitioner Exam. If you require the Foundation Exam, please contact SPOCE for the options available.

This course includes Course Materials, Practitioner Exam & Refreshments. *Manual not included* please bring your own copy from the Foundation course, if you dont have it then contact us for purchase options.

The focus of this event is to apply previous learning of the method to sample Practitioner style exam questions. No learning of any new MSP® topics should be expected, rather an enhancement of your existing knowledge.

What Are The Course Objectives?

The key objectives of the MSP® Practitioner course are:

  • Provide Delegates with an opportunity to review their individual preparation for the MSP® Practitioner examination
  • Develop the delegate's ability to apply the MSP® Method appropriately through various programme-based scenarios and associated objective tests
  • Provide Delegates with an opportunity to complete example answers typical of the Practitioner examination question papers
  • Receive constructive feedback from an APM Group Approved MSP® Trainer
  • Discuss specific areas of MSP® with an Approved Trainer and other attendees, and to devise exam strategies from the responses provided

What Is The Course Approach?

During the course, candidates will have an opportunity to try out the application of their existing MSP knowledge to a typical practitioner exam scenario and related objective tests questions.

It can be expected that this preparation event will improve the likelihood of passing the APMG Practitioner Exam.

Course Content

This 2-day event is intended to prepare delegates for the MSP Practitioner Exam, and although a flexible timetable is applied, it will include the following elements:

  • An overview of the MSP Practitioner Exam, including structure/format, syllabus areas, question types and the importance of strategy and time management
  • Then, for each syllabus area (e.g. Business Case), a brief overview will be followed by a sample Practitioner Exam question. As each question is completed, there will be a review of the answers and rationale, before moving on to another syllabus area. This cycle is then repeated throughout the day. In order to ensure that delegates are well prepared for the Practitioner Exam, all syllabus areas are covered, including a look at key areas of the manual (bearing in mind that the Practitioner Exam is 'open-book')

By the end of day 2, delegates will have attempted sample questions covering all question types used in the Practitioner Exam, with some further questions being available for evening work.

What examinations are taken on the course?

MSP® Practitioner Exam: 2½ hours, open book (MSP® manual only) consisting of 8 scenario -based objective test questions.

Please remember to bring your Manual with you for the course and the open book practitioner exam
