MSP® is a programme management method in which people, activities and information are brought together to implement change within an organization as efficiently as possible.
Organizations need to respond to continual change in order to survive and grow. Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) provides a proven, best practice approach for designing and running programmes so that organizations can both deliver their strategy and gain measurable benefits from change.
MSP® is part of the Global Best Practice suite of publications, which helps organizations and individuals manage their projects, programmes and services consistently and effectively. Successful management of a programme requires a specific set of leadership and management skills that go beyond the discipline of project management. The internationally recognised MSP® course focuses on the key skills and knowledge required by programme managers to effectively deliver a successful programme. Particular attention is paid to the challenges that are often encountered by programme managers.
