  • After letting the delegates introduce themselves it is now time to tell them what your goals and expectations are for the course. Tell them that you need to prepare them for the exams and that it means that you will need to go through the material and various exercises with them. Also tell them that your other objective is to make them understand the underlining philosophy of using PRINCE2 in a project environment.

    • 14. PRINCE2 versus Body of Knowledge (e.g. PMI)• The differences between PRINCE2 (a method) and a BoK make them highly complementary.• PRINCE2 provides a framework of what needs to be done, by who and when.• The BoK provides a range of techniques of how those things can be done.• Tailoring PRINCE2 if the organization is aligned to any particular BoK (e.g. the Project Management Institute – PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide – PMBOK and its superstructure standards) should include: • Agreeing a single set of terms to apply. For example, in the Project Management Institute’s Body of Knowledge the Project Sponsor is equivalent to PRINCE2’s Executive • Aligning PRINCE2’s management products with any management products recommended by the BoK. For example, the Project Charter in PMBOK is equivalent to PRINCE2’s Project Brief. 14 Based on OGC PRINCE2™ material, unless otherwise stated.
