MSP® Themes, Principles and Transformational flow

The framework of MSP® is based on the following concepts:

MSP® Governance Themes

MSP® governance themes provide the overall structure of the organisation and describe the roles and responsibilities of all the individuals involved in the programme. It allows the organisations to achieve the best chance for success by executing right leadership, organisational   structure and controls in the right place.

MSP® Principles

MSP® principles are derived from positive or negative lessons that are learnt from the previous programme experiences. The experience can be learned from anyone either an ordinary employee or a manager or business owner. These include the common factors that guarantee the success of any transformational change.

MSP® Transformational Flow

There are six processes in the transformational flow such as identifying a programme, defining the detail of the programme, managing the tranches, delivering the capability, realising the benefits and closing the programme including ensuring that the benefits have been achieved successfully.
