MSP® Managing Successful Programmes – Practitioner
2-day Training Program leading to the Practitioner Level Certificate in MSP.
[Updated April 2021 – MSP® 5th Edition]
Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) represents proven good practice in the successful adoption of enterprise agility through the application of programme management. It is a framework whereby large, complex change can be broken down into manageable, inter-related projects.
MSP has been used and adopted by many organisations both within the public and private sectors.
Why adopt MSP?

Roles and responsibilities
MSP defines the roles and responsibilities of all who need to form part of the leadership of a programme. Effective leadership of a programme is achieved through informed decision-making and a flexible management regime. The key roles involved are:
MSP Integrated Framework
There are three lenses to the MSP framework:
Principles – the common factors that underpin the success of any programme.
Themes – covering essential governance and controls.
Processes – an incremental lifecycle that is flexible and adaptable yet enables an orderly progression with clear decision criteria
