Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)

 

About MSP Training

MSP  is a globally-recognised Programme Management qualification which indicates knowledge of best practice in programme management and the ability to apply this knowledge to the workplace. The course includes both exams and has been accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. 

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) certification supports delegates in the successful delivery of transformational change through applying proven programme management practices. The MSP Framework is based on three core concepts: 

MSP Princples, these are derived from positve and negative lessons learned from programme experiences. They are the common factors that underpin the sucess of any transfromational 

MSP Governance, these define an organisatons approach to prgramme management. they allow organisations to put in place the right leadership, delivery team, organisational structures and cobntrols, giving the best chance for success. 

MSP Tranformational, this provides a route through the lifecycle of a programme from it concetion through to the  delivery of the new capability, outcomes and benefits

The combined MSP course will teach delegates how to successfully deliver change through the application of programme management. MSP framework is becoming increasingly recognised as a key factor which enables organisations to manage transformation, as experience has shown that organisations are likely to fail to deliver change successfully where the leadership is too weak, or there are unrealistic expectations of the organisational capacity and capability. Adopting programme management approach with MSP helps eliminate such risks and interdependencies to manage, and conflicting priorities to resolve.

Case Study

The organisers of the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympic Games used MSP® to help them manage such a large and complex event.

The Games were a gigantic undertaking for London, and it was important to get them right. Getting the event to go off without a hitch required a vast amount of organisation; venues had to be built on time, transport had to be co-ordinated to work around the Games, and all the different departments and agencies involved, from the Home Office to the Metropolitan Police, had to deliver their services efficiently and effectively.

At the basic level, each project within the Olympic Games could be managed using a Project Management methodology such as PRINCE2. However, at the programme level, where groups of projects were collected together, a different kind of high-level methodology was needed. The principles of MSP were used in order to give structure to the programme, ensuring plans were pulled together and that risks were managed effectively.

The organisers of the Games also understood the importance of stakeholder engagement, a vital part of the MSP® framework. Stakeholders were kept in the loop throughout the project, not just through written reports, but through face to face communication. Furthermore, by looking at the successes and failures with previous Olympic Games, the London 2012 organisers were able to identify potential problems and take the steps to solve them in plenty of time.

Overall, the 2012 Olympic Games were a great success thanks to the programme management provided by MSP®. Every venue was constructed on time and the event stayed within budget.
