PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2) is by far the world’s most widely used project management methodology, used by both the public and private sectors.
For any type of project in any environment, PRINCE2 contains a complete set of concepts and project management processes which are the minimum requirements for a properly run and managed project.
PRINCE2 is a project management method designed to be adaptable and scalable for all types of projects. The method can be tailored to reflect an organisation's existing standards and business size.
Benefits for Individuals
- Ensure that team members focus on the viability of the project in relation to its business case objectives - rather than simply seeing the completion of the project as an end in itself.
- Promote consistency of project work and the ability to reuse project assets while facilitating staff mobility and reducing the impact of personnel changes/handovers.
- Design plans and reports to meet the needs of each level in the project team and Project Board, improving communication and control.
- Mitigate perceived problems and issues and focus on the viability of the project throughout.
- Evaluate the project portfolio to bring clarity and allow improvements in reviewing projects.
Benefits for Organisations
- Benefit from a shared and thoroughly understood language and approach to reporting which will save time and effort.
- Increase staff awareness of their roles and responsibilities in the project management life cycle.
- Utilise an invaluable diagnostic tool, facilitating the assurance and assessment of project work, troubleshooting and audits.
- Ensure stakeholders (including sponsors and resource providers) are properly represented in planning and decision making.
- Enable more effective engagement of stakeholders in the process of project approval and management.
