The MSP® methodology is based on three elements:


            7 key principles based on lessons learned from programs of a large inventory of private and public organizations.


            9 Governance Topics that defines the Organization’s approach to program management. It is that way that, leadership, a delivery team, a solid organizational structure, appropriate controls and many other themes form the foundation of your program.


            6 Transformational Change Processes give the steps throughout the life cycle of the program from design to delivery of new capabilities, through the delivery of planned results, realization of the benefits and finally the closure of the program.





The MSP Foundation Certification is the first of three levels. This level is intended to confirm that the candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of MSP® in order to interact effectively with the participating program management members or act as an informed member of the Program Office team, the Change Management team or the Project Delivery team in a MSP® environment.


The MSP® Practitioner Certification is designed to confirm that the candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of MSP® to act as an informed member of the Programs Office team. This person will be able to manage, lead, support and advise on the work in a MSP® environment.


The last level is the Advanced MSP® Practitioner use usually for trainers.
