Managing Successful Programmes


Programmes do vary in nature and degree of change. Examples may include: managing the development and delivery of new products and services; or wide-scale changes to infrastructure and business systems; facilitating the adoption of new behaviours and working procedures; or management of broad-scale transformational change that combines the above examples. Programmes directly support delivery of corporate strategy.

Programme management can then be described as the coordination of a collection of related projects and activities aimed at achieving key strategic objectives.

Today MSP certification has helped more programme managers than any other programme management qualification. In 2020 an updated version of MSP was released and is now known as MSP 5th edition.
