MSP® (Managing Successful Programmes), 5th edition is an established best practice programme management framework, designed to align programmes and projects to organizational strategy and enable enterprise agility. MSP® focuses on the delivery of outcomes of benefit, while mitigating risk and actively engaging stakeholders.
 
MSP consists of a set of principles, themes, and processes that provide a clear roadmap for the programme lifecycle, including larger, more strategic, complex, or multiple projects.
 
The principles represent the characteristics of a successful programme. The governance themes allow organizations to put the right leadership, organizational structures, and controls in place. The processes provide a route through the lifecycle of a programme to deliver the new capability and desired outcomes.
 
The Principles in MSP advise how to:

  • Organise people to ensure responsibilities and lines of communication are clear
  • Plan the work in a way which achieves results
  • Ensure that the organisation benefits from undertaking the programme
  • Ensure that all interested parties (the stakeholders) are involved
  • Resolve issues which arise
  • Identify and manage risks
  • Ensure quality
  • Keep up to date information which tracks the continually changing environment
  • Audit a programme to ensure standards are being followed

 
The Processes in MSP describe how to:

  • Identify the aim of the programme and envisaged benefits to the organisation
  • Define the programme, and specify how the organisation will be different afterwards
  • Establish the programme
  • Monitor and co-ordinate the projects within a programme to a successful conclusion
  • Manage the transition between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ ways of working, ensuring benefit
  • Close the programme and ensure the ‘end goal’ has been achieved

 
Programme Management Vs Project Management
 
A programme is made up of a specific set of related projects identified by an organisation that together will deliver some defined objective, or set of objectives, for the organisation.
 
The objectives, or goals, of the programme are typically at a strategic level so that the organisation can achieve benefits and improvements in its business operation.
 
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’.
 
In other words, without Programme Management, the projects might still be able to deliver their particular outcomes but these would not be co-ordinated or integrated into the achievement of a strategic business goal.

Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate. This might involve answering on-screen questions and participating in tasks.
