MSP Themes: Blueprint Design and Delivery

Written by Andy Trainer – Thu 25 Nov 2010

A blueprint is a model of the organisation, its working practices and processes, the information it requires and the technology that supports its operations. The blueprint provides a useable basis for modelling benefits and designing the Projects Dossier. The Blueprint is used throughout the programme to maintain the focus on delivery of the new capability.

It is created in Defining a Programme with the Benefits Map, Project Dossier, Programme Plan, Benefits Realisation Plan and Business Case. The Blueprint will then be reviewed at the end of each tranche.

Silicon Beach Training offer great MSP® Training, you can try MSP Foundation Training and MSP Practitioner Training.

Would you like MSP® Training? Silicon Beach run regular MSP Foundation courses and MSP Practitioner courses.

Each process describes inputs, activities, outputs, controls and roles. There are also typical responsibilities summarised in a table at the end of each chapter. Please note that these may need to be adapted and extended for each programme. The Transformational Flow is represented at the centre of the diagram -
