Overview
Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) is the best-practice, proven and internationally accepted approach to the successful delivery of transformational change through the application of programme management.

MSP Practitioner is the second of the three MSP qualifications and is a pre-requisite for anyone wishing to pursue MSP Advanced Practitioner certifications. You are required to have passed MSP Foundation before attempting MSP Practitioner exam and you need to have your own copy of the Official MSP manual (ISBN - 13:9780113313273).

The purpose of the practitioner qualification is to determine whether a delegate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to apply the guidance to their own work and, hence, act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment. Delegates should be capable of applying the MSP guidance in a relatively uncomplicated programme within an environment that uses MSP.
Prerequisites
    • You are required to have passed MSP Foundation before attempting MSP Practitioner exam and you need to bring along your copy of the Official MSP manual, 9780113313273.

      Essential Prerequisites:
      Proof of prerequisites MUST be produced on the day of the exam to the trainer.
      Acceptable forms of prerequisite confirmation are as follows:
      A copy of the candidates examination certificate
      Confirmed entry in the AXELOS Successful Candidate Register. You will need to provide the full SCR number (registration/candidate number located on your certificate).
      Delegates without evidence of the prerequisites will NOT be permitted to sit the exam.

      Delegates whose pre-requisite was taken with BCS simply need to inform ITTS of this information prior to the exam event. Evidence will not need to be provided on the day of the exam.
Certification
You must bring photographic identification to sit their exam (passport, driving license or work badge are acceptable) as it is an examination requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in you not being able to sit your exam. For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, please contact us.

BCS allow additional time for candidates who have a disability or whose native language differs to that of the examination paper. Full details are provided in the BCS Reasonable Adjustments Policy which is available to view on the BCS website. If you believe you qualify for this then please notify the Exam Administration team on the details below as early as possible. At least two weeks' notice will be required for processing this request. Delegates failing to advise QA and provide evidence when requested, may not be allowed the additional support offered via the BCS policy. QA Exam Administration can be contacted

You must also be familiar with the APMG International Terms and Conditions of Certification which can be found here on the APMG International website.

      Specifically, successful delegates should be able to:

      Explain the relationship between the MSP principles, governance themes, the transformational flow, programme information (documents) and the MSP defined programme management roles

      Understand the approach to the treatment of each governance theme
      Appreciate how each governance theme is applied throughout the Transformational Flow
      Understand the responsibilities involved in each governance theme
      Apply and tailor the relevant aspects of each governance theme to a scenario, when creating or reviewing products or making decisions related to each theme, in any or all of the processes
