Managing Successful Programmes Training

Businesses are increasingly recognising their need for programme management. Managing Successful Programmes or MSP for short has grown across the world as it has been established as the standard for programme management. Managing Successful Programmes comprises a set of principles, governance themes and a transformational flow to provide the route map for the programme lifecycle.

MSP offers best-practice guidance and has been designed for all businesses regardless of their size, public or private sector – to help them achieve successful outcomes from transformational change. MSP has been developed to help businesses achieve excellence by improving practices, offering better services and preparing more effectively for the future.

There is a close link between Programme Management and project management because the programme is made up of projects and is only successful if the projects within it succeed. The concept of a programme is that it should deliver more than the ‘sum of its parts’.

The MSP framework is based on three core concepts:

Principles: These are derived from positive and negative lessons learned from programme experiences. They are the common factors that underpin the success of any transformational change.

Governance Themes: These define an businesses approach to programme management. They allow a business to put in place the right leadership, delivery team, structures and controls, giving the best chance for success.

Transformational Flow: This provides a route through the lifecycle of a programme from its conception through to the delivery of the new capability, outcomes and benefits.
