15 months ago I along with two colleagues took part in a Managing Successful Programmes course. Due to work commitments beyond my control, I didn’t manage to sit the ‘Practitioner’ exam on the last day of the course. I was gutted, as I’d been looking to do the course for a number of years for my own professional development, so not having the chance to gain the qualification was a disappointment. For those of you that know the course, you sit a ‘Foundation’ exam mid week, but the true test of the course is the application of the theory in a practical example. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to sit in on the course again, but this time I sat the ‘Practitioner’ exam – and passed!
When your confidence takes a knock, it’s lovely to have little moments like this that help boost it again. Turns out I do know quite a bit about Managing Successful Programmes after all.
