Using MSP in Your Organization

"MSP defines programme management as the action of carrying out the coordinated organization, direction and implementation of a dossier of projects and transformation activities (i.e. the programme) to achieve outcomes and realize benefits of strategic importance to the business."
- from Managing Successful Programmes

It provides a framework whereby large, complex change can be broken down into manageable, inter-related projects. For those managing this overall delivery the principles of programme management are key to delivering on time and within budget.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) comprises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. It is founded on best practice although it is not prescriptive. It is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.
