Brexit – the biggest MSP programme ever – August 2016 highlight report

Welcome to the August highlight report for “Brexit – the biggest MSP programme ever”

In the aftermath of the Leave vote in June we thought it would be interesting to illustrate how the MSP® (Managing Successful Programmes)  framework would cope with such a massive challenge, so we released the paper explaining this at the end of June, see this here, with our set of recommendations which proved very popular.

The events of July, whilst appearing random, fitted in almost perfectly with the steps in the MSP® programme process, so rather than produce another paper, we produced a highlight report which again proved really popular. August proved a little light on information due to everyone being on holiday, so we have included events at G20 within the report, some might say the stakeholders are revolting.

This is reflecting the reality of programme management, where there are commitments to major change without clarity of vision for stakeholders to buy into, if they aren’t going to be advocates then the only option is at best ambivalence or more likely adversary, neither of which will enable the guiding coalition needed to deliver such a massive programme.
