Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®)

Best Practices for Successful Delivery of Outcomes and Benefits

Realizing a fundamental change or achievement needs multiple projects and actions to be run concurrently. The principle is clear but in reality the conjunction of a lot of complicated tasks leads to huge lacks of effectiveness and efficiency.

Programme Management aims at aligning all projects and tasks into a coordinated, outcomes focused steering framework. Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) is a set of Best Practices to steer projects and actions in a coordinated way.

This course is a must for Directors and Senior Managers who need to steer and coordinate multiple project managers and report to the Board regarding outcomes of these projects.
