Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) was developed as a best practice guide on Programme Management. The guide comprises a set of Principles and a set of Processes for use when managing a programme.

MSP represents proven programme management best practice in the successful delivery of transformational change through the application of programme management. MSP is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.

MSP Framework

The MSP framework is based on three core concepts:

  • MSP Principles. These are derived from positive and negative lessons learned from programme experiences. They are the common factors that underpin the success of any transformational change
  • MSP Governance Themes. These define an organization's approach to programme management. They allow an organization to put in place the right leadership, delivery team, organization structures and controls, giving the best chance for success
  • MSP Transformational Flow. This provides a route through the lifecycle of a programme from its conception through to the delivery of the new capability, outcomes and benefits.
  • Not for humans
