The Course Description

Managing Successful Programmes methodology, version 2011, is designed for organizations that manage large business transformational changes. If the introduced change impacts many areas of operations and involves long and very complex processes, the project-based approach to its implementation can be ineffective. It is worthwhile to use a proven solution for managing the programme; in other words, for managing a group of related projects. The MSP methodology based on principles sets the foundation for the efficient transformation of an organization’s capabilities. MSP includes a number of governance themes, that is, the control framework through which programme achieves its goal and remains under the control of the organization. The MSP methodology also includes a description of transformational flow processes. By observing the functions of particular processes, one can determine what needs to be done for the designed change to be implemented.

Benefits and advantages of MSP implementation:

  • Focus on defining and implementing the benefits;
  • Planning a programme and projects within the programme as a way to introduce business changes in the organization;
  • The introduction of control mechanisms, monitoring and control of a programme and the projects conducted within the programme;
  • Planning and monitoring the progress of a programme;
  • Recognition of a programme’s impact on an organization’s objectives; including the requirements of a company’s policy/strategy delivered through the programme;
  • Control of initiating a programme, its implementation, and closing a programme.
