We help organisations become more capable of delivering their bids, projects, programmes and portfolios effectively and efficiently. We help raise confidence among senior executives, stakeholders, regulators and shareholders that the time and effort invested will yield the desired results. We do this by applying a maturity modelling approach, which involves:
- understanding the context in which you deliver your initiatives;
- understanding current capability;
- identifying the capability you need, and then; and
- jointly identifying and prioritising what will make the biggest impact on delivery performance.
Where needed we also provide advice and assistance in implementing the changes which are necessary to gain the capability you seek. Our range of services includes:
- capability assessments for bids, projects, programmes and portfolios;
- capability improvement;
- assurance and health-checks;
- bid/project/programme initiation;
- portfolio definition and reviews;
- PMO design and establishment;
- development and embedment of bespoke frameworks and methods; and
- provision of standard frameworks/methods through our Outperform Toolkit.
Whether you would like our help with a bid, project or programme in difficulty, or you require support in raising your overall organisational capability, our consultants can help. Our specialists are recognised as leaders in their fields of expertise. They have been at the heart of the development of internationally recognised best practice guidance, such as:
- APM’s Body of Knowledge
- APM’s Co-Directing Change
- HM Treasury’s Project Initiation Routemap
We are not theorists though – we were chosen to develop these guides through our experience as practitioners and our track record of embedding sustainable capability in organisations. RSM is a corporate member of the Major Projects Association (MPA), the Association for Project Management (APM) and is an Axelos Consulting Partner (ACP).
|I’ve listed below some of the attributes of successful programmes. This toolkit will help you to a greater or lesser degree with all of them.
Good luck with your programme and I hope you find this toolkit really useful!
|MSP is without doubt the best approach to managing transformation programmes out there. However, once you've been on the course and put little yellow sticky notes all over the pages of the manuals to help you pass the exam, how do you find what you want in a practical way when you come to apply the method? How do you learn from what's in the heads of those practitioners and consultants who've been there before? How do you find what you want to know without reading the manual from start to finish again (especially when your yellow sticky notes have long since fallen off)?
So welcome to a new way to learn about programme management in your organisation.
This is a wiki based book of knowledge that allows you to navigate in your own way and at your own pace through MSP. Or rather that should be MSP applied with the experience that comes from embedding and tailoring the method in dozens of organisations. You can use this to supplement the manuals, as an alternative to formal training, or just to see what the thought leaders are actually thinking. You can also benefit from hints and tips, which we hope to grow over time with your input.
I hope you enjoy what you see. If you do, or if you don't, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
