Organisations today exist in a climate where the need for change is ubiquitous, in view of the many dynamic, and sometimes contradictory, ‘drivers for change’, such as changes in the global economy, societal trends and new legislation.
Substantial risk is involved in carrying out complex, difficult and often unclear major changes to the way an organisation operates. ‘Managing Successful Programmes’ (MSP) is a principles, governance themes and process based approach founded on best practice for use when managing a programme.
