Purpose of the MSP Practitioner qualification
The purpose of the practitioner qualification is to determine whether a candidate 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. Candidates should be capable of applying the MSP guidance in a relatively uncomplicated programme within an environment that uses MSP.
This level is also a prerequisite for programme management professionals progressing toward the advanced practitioner qualification, and those aspiring to become programme management professionals in the future.
Who is MSP Practitioner for ?
Project managers, BCMs, experts and advisers working within a programme office and other specialist/governance roles involved in supporting programmes following the MSP guidance together with those wishing to pursue higher level qualifications (e.g. programme managers).
