Managing Successful Programmes
Managing Successful Programmes, that is what the acronym MSP stands for. MSP® represents proven good practices in programme management to successfully deliver transformational change. It is based on 7 principles, 9 governance themes, and 6 transformational flow processes that together create a framework for programme management, drawn from experience of both pubic and private sector organisations.
MSP® is generic - it can be applied to any programme, although it is most suitable in highly complex, ambiguous or risky environments, like business transformations. It is not prescriptive but lays out a flexible route to programme management and advises on how to apply the principles, themes and processes in your transformation programmes as to gain measurable improvements from the change.
MSP® is the de facto standard in the world for programme management. It is very rare to find class room based or instructor led trainings in MSP® in Hong Kong, so do not hesitate to reach out if you want to find out what can be done.
The MSP® Guide explains any of the principles, governance themes and transformational flow processes in elaborate detail. It explains the key programme management information a programme should use, why it should be used and what it should cover. Where applicable it illustrates with examples and case studies how the framework has been brought into practice.
There is Foundation level and a Practitioner level certification. A MSP® Foudation certificate holder has demonstrated a general level of MSP® understanding that is sufficient to work as an informed member of a programme office, business change team or project team member in a programme setting. A MSP® Practitioner certificate holder has shown to understand the MSP® principles, governance themes and transformational flow processes well enough to manage a programme.
