Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) Practitioner Course
On Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) you will gain an understanding of what makes a ‘programme’ a programme, and not just a big project. You will, like many people on the course to-date realise major changes that should have been managed as a programme.
This is an exceptional learning programme. It will change the way you look at any strategic step-change in your organisation, its breadth, the sort of people that should be involved in it, and where you need to focus your attention in order to realise real enduring, measurable benefit. Your organisation's investment in this learning programme could be the beginning of new levels of performance. MSP can help you accelerate your organisation's performance and help it to its target capability.
The OGC’s Best Practice MSP Framework, will enable you to see how to position key individuals and mechanisms in a programme to ensure that you can realise, measure and claim strategic benefits.
Are you looking for ways to effectively manage portfolios of projects?
Does your organisation have more ‘motion’ than ‘movement’?
Does your organisation:
- Seem to be always reacting to the latest external drivers (what competitors are doing, new regulations, etc)?
- Pursue too many internal initiatives that seem to have no strategic value?
- Deliver outcomes from projects without any demonstrable benefit?
If you can say ‘Yes’ to any of these three questions, then you probably are seeing a lot of motion, a lot of activity, but no equivalent improvement in organisational performance - no movement.
