MSP® Training

What is MSP?

MSP® is an acronym of Managing Successful Programmes. MSP provides a set of principles, governance themes and transformational flow processes for use when establishing and managing a programme. It is founded on best practice although it is not prescriptive. It is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.
