Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®), 4th edition (2011) combines rigour and flexibility with a proven, best-practice approach to designing and running programmes, helping organisations achieve consistently successful outcomes from their programmes, and enabling them to gain measurable benefits from business change.

MSP 2011 is accessible by programme teams and organisations as well as by individual practitioners, helping improve decision making at programme level in order to become better at implementing beneficial change.

Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®), 4th edition (2011) is illustrated with real life examples and helpful tips for putting best practice into real life situations, making its guidance easier to use.

The guidance in the MSP 2011 manual has been revised to capture the latest thinking on programme management best practice, and takes into consideration all the latest technological and best practice developments.

It includes new guidance covering assurance and integrated assurance, topics not regularly covered in other programme management books.

The 2011 MSP update

  • MSP 2011 provides clearer guidance on how a programme deals with multiples business change managers. Also included is more about programme tranches, when they may overlap and the risks involved.
  • The guidance on benefits management, quality and assurance management, and risk and issue management has been improved to be more programme-centric and to improve consistency with other OGC Best Management Practice guidance.
  • New guidance covering integrated assurance has been added to the Quality and Assurance Management chapter in the MSP 2011 manual. The theme chapters now have a section on how the theme interacts with the transformational flow.
  • More comprehensive guidance on configuration management, particularly in relation to managing issues, is provided. Consistent use of terminology and concepts for the RACI tables, roles and responsibilities, and the distinction between strategies and plans has also been approved.
