MSP Background

The "Managing Successful Programmes" (MSP®) guidance provides and maintains a strategic view over the set of projects, aligning and co-ordinating them within a programme of business change in support of specific business strategies. Programme Management provides the framework for implementing business strategies and initiatives, or large scale change, where there is a "vision" of the programme’s outcome – a transformed organisation for example.
