It is often stated that the one constant in the modern world is change. Whether that change is driven from a strategic perspective, forms part of a programme of transformational change, or is in response to an operational imperative, the delivery mechanism for change remains the same, and that is project management.
This latest version of the PRINCE2® method reinforces the principles that underpin successful project management, and provides guidance on how to apply those principles to any type of project. It also demonstrates how organizations can tailor PRINCE2 to suit their needs, allowing them to bring an appropriate level of governance and control to a project at an acceptable level of risk. As such, Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 remains the essential manual for anyone with an interest in project management.
The challenge that faces all organizations, regardless of sector, or the size and complexity of their projects, is to deliver change through managing projects successfully and consistently. This is where PRINCE2 adds value, as the globally recognized standard for delivering successful projects.
A good (and official) overview of the PRINCE2 methodology/framework. I started to appreciate it a lot more lately, as my experience grows.
PMI, IPMA et al has better books written about about them, but the PRINCE2 feels to be more rooted in reality and more encompassing.
But it could have been better wriiten.
