MSP ® - Managing Successful Programmes

Managing Successful Programmes was first published by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) in 1999 and updated in 2003, 2007, and 2011.

MSP represents proven best-practice programme management and is a framework for successfully delivering transformational change through a dossier of related projects.

Whilst not being prescriptive it is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances. It reaches its ultimate objectives by bringing together the key elements of:

• Governance themes
• Transformational flow

by applying a principles-based approach to enable success.

In all, MSP enables more effective delivery of change and a smooth transition from current to future business operation.
