Programme Management is a vital component in the delivery of strategic / business initiative and change. Delivering the right benefits and outcomes from change requires a structured framework to co-ordinate, communicate, align, manage and control the activities involved.
Programme Management provides this framework through organisation, processes, inputs, outputs and a focus on strategic thinking.
MSP 5th edition is an established best practice programme management framework, designed to align programmes and projects to organizational strategy and enable enterprise agility. MSP focuses on the delivery of outcomes of benefit, while mitigating risk and actively engaging stakeholders.
MSP is a globally recognised programme management methodology from AXELOS Limited who provide a range of best management practice guides, including PRINCE2, PRINCE2 Agile, MoP and P3O.
