What is MSP®?
MSP® (Managing Successful Programmes) is a best practice framework consisting of principles and processes to use in the management of programmes. MSP® breaks down large, complex organisational changes into more manageable projects, and is flexible enough to be adapted to meet the needs of any business.
MSP® is managed by the managing body AXELOS. High-profile users include BP, GlaxoSmithKline and the London Olympics.
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.
