MSP 5th edition emphasizes more on flexibility, adaptability, and responsiveness by adopting an incremental approach to the programme lifecycle and thus enabling organizational agility.

MSP 5th edition Practitioner is for project, programme, and business change managers that want to build on their knowledge of MSP, in order to practically apply the MSP framework to real life scenarios, providing the skills to lead and manage a programme. It is a must-have certification for both project and programme management professionals to deliver organizational value to their employers and boost their careers.



The MSP Practitioner certification is intended to assess whether the candidate can demonstrate sufficient ability to apply and tailor the MSP programme management framework to be awarded the MSP Practitioner qualification. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the framework to a real programme but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations.



The MSP Practitioner certification is aimed at project managers, business change managers (BCMs), and people working within a Programme Office (PO) or in a specialist or governance position. This MSP course demonstrates your ability to understand and apply the MSP principles, governance themes, and transformational flow processes when managing a programme.



This MSP training can provide 16 Professional Development Units (PDUs). Here below you can find more details about the PDUs allocation:

Technical: 10
