MSP® Managing Successful Programmes

MSP® provides a pragmatic approach to programme management which ensures that a strong leadership and governance structure is established and maintained.


Programme Management is about coordinating strategic organisational change. MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) seeks to bring about this change through the coordinated management of projects that change an organisation to achieve benefits of strategic importance. MSP is characterised by its focus on benefit management, which is a process for maximising benefits from organisational change projects. A programme is made up of a specific set of projects that will deliver some defined objectives aligned with corporate strategy. The objectives of the programme are typically at a strategic level so the organisation can achieve benefits and improvements in its business operations.
