This aim of this guide is to help groups design an MSC system for their program or project. The guide splits MSC design into 8 steps. Each step is described, then some questions are asked in relation to the step. Hopefully, answering these questions will help your group develop an appropriate MSC process. This document was designed to be used as part of a one-day training workshop in MSC – it was not intended to be a stand-alone document. But please feel free to copy this document, just acknowledge Dart and Davies as the authors and please let us know how it can be improved by contacting Jess Dart,
