MSP Workshops (Managing Successful Programmes)

KPS Consultants MSP Workshops are highly interactive MSP Workshops designed to focus on the core concepts and techniques of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) MSP best practice methodology.

OGC’s Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) is a robust programme management framework which has been designed to help organisations in both the public and private sector manage change, and deliver business benefits that are of strategic importance through a portfolio of projects. The first edition of MSP was released by the OGC in 1999; thereafter significant revisions were made in 2003 to capture the increasing experiences and knowledge of organisations using programme management. More recently, OGC in consultation with the programme management community has refreshed the MSP manual (2007) to ensure it remains truly one of the leading global standards for programme management.

MSP Workshops are designed to provide your organisation with an understanding of the robust nature of OGC's MSP programme management framework, its application and practical approach to effectively to deliver change and realise benefits through promoting, initiating and deploying MSP.
