Large, complex deliveries are often broken down into manageable, inter-related projects. For those managing the programs, Managing Successful programme (MSP) is mandatory. It is the practise of outsourcing day to day IT management responsibilities as responsibilities are a strategic method for improving operations. MSP are the key to deliver on time and within budget.
MSP compromises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. It is founded on best practise although it is not prescriptive. It is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.
MSP was developed as a best practise guide on programme management. MSP represents proven programme management best practises in the successful delivery of transformational change through the application of programme management.
The purpose of MSP qualification is to confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to interact effectively with those involved in the management of a programme. This qualification is also a pre requisite for the practitioner’s qualification.
MSP is accessible by programme teams and organisations as well as by individual practitioners. It will help programme management practitioners to improve their decision making at programme level and become better at implementing beneficial change. For example: An MSP calls on Stirling council to award Olympic gold medal winner Andy Murray the freedom of the city. According to the sources HCL info systems had bid about Rs 2200 core for the MSP contract beating TCS, TechMahindra, Wipro and others.

. Plan projects to support the programme
. Deliver on time and on budget
