Combining rigour and flexibility, MSP helps all organisations - public sector and private, large and small - achieve successful outcomes from their programme management time and time again. With change a pressing reality for all organisations, successful programme management has never been more vital to success. Organisations must respond as new processes or services are introduced, supplier relationships alter and structures adapt to market forces or legislation. At the same time, all organisations strive to achieve excellence by improving practices, offering better services, preparing more effectively for the future and encouraging innovation. But change always creates new challenges and risks. Inevitably there will be interdependencies to manage and conflicting priorities to resolve as the organisation adapts not just to a new situation internally but to the constantly shifting world outside.To enable organisations to manage their programmes successfully, they need a structured framework that does two things. It must acknowledge that every programme exists in its own context and demands unique interpretation. At the same time it must be universally applicable. MSP has been developed with these two priorities in mind. Its framework allows users to consistently manage a huge variety of programmes so that they deliver quality outcomes and lasting benefits. Fusing leadership with management best practice, MSP enables organisations to coordinate their key functions, develop a clear sense of unity and purpose and achieve the strategic cohesion necessary to drive through effective change

Programme management is becoming an increasingly important aspect of managing business change, whether within parts of an organisation, across the whole organisation or involving a group of organisations. The drivers for change may be internal, such as improving the quality of products, or external, such as new government policy. The second edition of this publication describes the OGC's approach for managing change effectively, based upon best practice experience within government and across the private sector. It provides an overview of the programme management framework, and considers key principles including leadership, benefits management, stakeholder management and communication, risk management, programme planning and control, business case management and quality management issues. It then goes on to discuss the programme management lifecycle including the identification and detailed definition of the programme, managing the project portfolio, delivery and realisation of measurable business benefits and the close-down of the programme and its infrastructure.

Managing Sustainable Development Programmes is about understanding the difficulties and complexities of large change programmes and projects in both the private and public sectors. The authors' research reveals an extraordinary level of failure in these projects, the analysis of which overturns much of our traditional thinking about project delivery and governance. They turn existing theories on project management on their head, focusing instead on sustainable change and development. The message at its heart is 'don't blame the project leader' but rather look for active ownership of projects; joint knowledge management and sharing with external stakeholders that secure long-term effects.
