Programme Management – PMI or MSP – which one is for you?

In the world, there are two main programme management frameworks, the MSP® framework which we have been so heavily involved in, and the PMI Programme Management framework from the US based community.

We were commissioned to write a paper comparing the two approaches and we thought this article would be an interesting reference point if you are looking to develop programme management understanding.

The overwhelming conclusion of this article is that organisations delivering programmes need to exploit the strengths of both approaches and once understood; they are surprisingly compatible and build on the strengths and weaknesses of each other rather than proposing opposing approaches.

The article has been written by Rod Sowden, lead author for MSP® 2007 and 2011.

International Project Management Day

We have recently received the following about  International Project Management Day for the 5th November 2015:

Recognizing the Contributions of the Worldwide Community of Project Managers – International Project Management Day Purpose:

The need for strong and well defined project management methods and strong project leaders is clearly evident in the world wide business, government, and non profit communities. A Review of PMI’s Pulse of the Profession research indicates a significant positive difference in organizational performance when defined project management methods are executed by trained and competent professionals.

The men and women who have chosen project management as their preferred career path should be recognized for their perseverance and dedication to achieving targeted goals and objectives. It is extremely important for managers, project sponsors and executives to take a few moments and recognize the contributions to organizational success that are provided through strong project leadership and high performing project teams. IPM Day is not a celebration, it is a moment of recognition. Reserve your celebrations for your project successes and the achievements of your teams as they meet and overcome the challenges they encounter.

Too Much Change – a free event at 6pm 14th April in Chester

Many organisations live with too much change. This is the day to day harsh reality for many P3CM professionals. This event aims to deal with the true reality that many people face, a multiplicity of changes competing for attention and resources. The workshop will aim to shed light on the reality for people in this situation, the impact and implication, insights into what can be done both at an individual and organisational level or at least strategies to cope with.

Speakers for the evening will include Vicki Craven who led an award winning change initiative at Cheshire West & Chester Council in partnership with Aspire Europe Ltd. Vicki will be talking about the Change Advocates initiative at the Council which won Silver at the Training Journal Awards in November 2014.

It will appeal to those at the sharp end – the change, project, program and portfolio managers who wish to understand why they are in the situation they are and what they can do to deal with it. Full details are available here

Introducing the First Virtual PMIR Synergy

We have received the following news from PMI, so thought it best to share:

“We are planning as a pilot to stream some of the presentation sessions at Synergy, our annual project management congress on the 13th of November 2014 starting 09:00hrs GMT. Not all the sessions will be available for streaming, therefore we are offering this opportunity free of charge. Two of the sessions that will be available are the opening address at 09:00hrs GMT by Ricardo Triana Chair of the PMI Board of Directors for 2014 and Maria Matarelli, Agile Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer  who will be presenting on Ineffective Leadership at 11:15hrs GMT. Both times are approximate.

All you have to do is register your interest on our website here using promotion code SynergyStream. On the 12th of November we will send you a web link to use to watch Synergy. You will also be able to tweet to the presenter using #pmisynergy”

We will most likely be attending these two sessions.
