Avner International has developed the world’s first accredited online e-learning course to prepare you for the MSP Advanced Practitioner examination.

MSP Advanced Practitioner is the highest level of personal accreditation that you can achieve in programme management. It is a highly prized qualification recognised widely across the world. An MSP Advanced Practitioner is recognised to be an expert in the practical application of the MSP programme management method.

Avner International staff have been teaching programme management skills and the MSP Advanced Practitioner level since the MSP method was first introduced around the year 2000, and were part of the authorship team for the MSP Managing Successful Programmes manual. Avner International staff are also recognised authorities in how to apply MSP Advanced Practitioner skills and methods in real world situations.

The MSP method is ideal for managing large scale and/or diverse change, particularly where there is considerable uncertainty and a complex stakeholder community. As such it sits above and around pure project management, integrating the strategic and operational requirement for new capabilities with project work to deliver them. MSP provides a structured approach to establishing and managing benefits, governance and stakeholder engagement.

There are three levels of MSP qualification:-

  • MSP Foundation
    Proves awareness of the MSP method
  • MSP Practitioner
    Proves understanding of the MSP method
  • MSP Advanced Practitioner
    Proves ability to apply the MSP methods

To gain the MSP Advanced Practitioner qualification you need to demonstrate three things via a written examination paper:-

  1. Correct use of all of the MSP Principles, 9 MSP Governance Themes, 6 Transformational Flows and general concepts.
  2. Ability to apply the method to a case study provided by APMG.
  3. Your own personal opinion, judgement and aptitude to participate in programme management. (Note that you do NOT need to be a programme manager to be an MSP Advanced Practitioner, however you do need good practical experience of complex programmes).
