What is Managing Successful Programmes?

'Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)' is a program and project management framework. It offers flexible yet comprehensive best practices for planning, instigating, managing, and concluding successful programs, breaking them down into more manageable projects with clearly defined goals.

How does MSP work?

MSP works by breaking down large and complex programs into more manageable projects. It also provides non-prescriptive best practices for program management, which can be used and adapted in virtually any industry, sector, or location.

The MSP framework describes Themes, Processes, and Principles, which detail how to structure and implement program plans. The best practices and insight of the framework can be adapted to suit any program, regardless of industry, location, sector, or anything else.

What does the MSP certification path look like?

The MSP certification path starts with MSP Foundation, before moving on to MSP Practitioner and, finally, MSP Advanced Practitioner.

How can MSP benefit businesses?

MSP is flexible and adaptive enough to suit almost any organization or program. It also clarifies goals, lines of communication, and roles, enabling streamlined decision-making and making it easier to complete programs on time and within budget.

Practitioners also continually assess their projects for the sake of risk management and ensuring a focus on the ‘Business Case’.

Who can use MSP?

Due to its adaptable and non-prescriptive nature, almost any organization can use MSP. An MSP qualification can also be highly useful for both aspiring or experienced project or program managers.
