MSP Survival Guide for Business Change Managers

This is one of the MSP Survival Guide series and the first of the publications intended to enhance the MSP® body of knowledge by focusing on the roles, tasks and techniques of each of the roles.MSP Survival Guide for BCM's

The author is Rod Sowden (MSP Lead Author) and he was supported by a number of the Aspire Europe team.

The book addresses the areas which were too complex for the main MSP® manual within the size constraints of the book.

It is designed as the companion guide for the individuals who are appointed in this complex role of BCM, a role that is increasingly being referred to as the SBO (Senior Business Owner).

The book includes a range of specific advice, tools and worked examples together with case studies that help everyone in this role to perform effectively.

Why is learning from failure so difficult?

One of the great mysteries is why do we keep making the same mistakes or doing blindingly stupid things. The P3M industry is just a reflection of a wider society, as programmes and projects fail repeatedly for the same reasons, yet each time it seems to come as a complete surprise.

TSO asked Aspire Europe to write the guest article for their website, so we decided to focus on this topic and share our insights. We hope you find the article useful.

If just one word from this article triggers a thought or an idea that improves your performance at any time in the future, then it will have been worthwhile.

Brexit – The biggest MSP® transformation programme ever

In the aftermath of the referendum there is clearly a massive change on its way and as programme management is all about delivering strategic change, we thought it would be a good idea to start to think about Brexit in terms of a transformation programme

We thought it would be useful to illustrate how Managing Successful Programmes (MSP®) would handle the challenge and as always, it comes up trumps and helps focus on on the dilemmas being faced and the process for dealing with them. Brexit – the biggest MSP programme ever  – we hope you enjoy the read.
