Interesting Quote

“Many of the things you can count, don’t count. Many of the things you can’t count, really count” – Albert Einstein

How very true this is, programmes and projects rarely report on the things that really matter, like benefits realisation and stakeholder satisfaction – Albert must have been thinking of MSP® when he wrote that!!

AXELOS update

We have recently received the following from AXELOS, the new owners of the UK Best Practice product set:


After a very encouraging start for AXELOS since our January launch, I’m really proud to share our latest developments as we begin to fulfill our promises and take action on the feedback we’ve been given from our communities around the globe.

In the first quarter of this year we’ve been fortunate to be able to announce some key new appointments to our business as we sustain our early momentum in taking the AXELOS Global Best Practice portfolio to the next level. We continue to engage and work closely with our partners, to collaboratively shape and define what we can do to improve the way we deliver our market leading portfolio of established products.

Following the announcements of our new Partner Programme and plans for our new Cyber Resilience portfolio, there are lots of exciting new developments happening at the moment and take it from me, there’s much more to come!

More updates from AXELOS can be found here.
