Programme management is the art of managing ambiguity and delivering business transformation. MSP® is the globally recognised best practice framework model for delivering programmes, and Aspire have provided the lead author for both the 2007 and 2011 versions. It is a management approach to implementing business strategies, policies and initiatives, or large-scale change, within an overall vision of the desired outcome. It breaks the journey into manageable chunks (Tranches) with review and decision points for controlling progress and improving performance. Programmes are different from projects in that it is their benefits and outcomes that matter, not just the capability offered by projects. Outputs are specified deliverables from projects that are delivered within time, cost and quality constraints. Outcomes are the effects of change and form the vision for the programme. To achieve the desired outcomes, active management of the change process is needed, often including transforming behavior, attitudes, or ways of working. Programme Management provides a framework that integrates and reconciles competing demands for resources, and provides a focus for projects. Programme management exists and delivers in ambiguity, project management is more suited to certainty. Aspire can offer you: Expertise and experience without parallel - we have been using MSP® since 2000 and have lead the authorship of the 2007 and 2011 versions Design and delivery of change programmes Tools and techniques that can be adapted to your environment Assurance reviews and health checks Interventions and programme rescue Help gaining organizational commitment at all levels Realistic assessment of your capacity for delivering change Help in planning your journey Training and mentoring, with qualifications
