  • 3. 17/03/2014 3 www.harrybakerprofessionals.com || 0802 839 1360 What is PRINCE2 3 PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE2) is a generic and structured project management method based on a wealth of experience drawn from thousands of projects undertaken in organizations around the world. Input into the method has come from many stakeholders (project managers, sponsors, project teams, industry leading experts, lecturers and consultants) PRINCE2 is a method; a framework; an umbrella under which project management can be undertaken with efficacy. PRINCE2 provides guidance on what to do (in order to run a project) and why it should be done this way, but draws the line at prescribing how to do it. PRINCE2 is about managing projects not about doing the work The purpose of PRINCE2 is to provide a project management method that can be applied regardless of project scale, type, organisatio n, geography or culture

  • 7. 17/03/2014 7 www.harrybakerprofessionals.com || 0802 839 1360 What does PRINCE2®offer? The Principles - These are the guiding obligations and good practices which determine whether the project is genuinely being managed using PRINCE2. There are seven principles and unless all of them are applied, it is not a PRINCE2 project. The Themes - These describe aspects of project management that must be addressed continually and in parallel throughout the project. The seven themes explain the specific treatment required by PRINCE2 for various Project management disciplines and why they are necessary. The Processes - These describe a step-wise progression through the project lifecycle, from getting started to project closure. Each process provides checklists of recommended activities, products and related responsibilities.

  • 16. 17/03/2014 16 www.harrybakerprofessionals.com || 0802 839 1360 Testimonials Olawale Adeola “Although my company already had its own project management process, working through PRINCE2 gave me ideas for how we could improve things –not just pointing out the bits we weren’t doing, but also telling my boss why they were important to the smooth running of the project.” Blessing Adeleye “I felt empowered to change the ad hoc approach we were taking because finally I could explain why we needed to have roles and responsibilities and a workable structure around the project.” Emmanuel Oludare “By day two of the course I felt like a ‘proper’ project manager because I realised I had been doing so much of what PRINCE2 suggests. A real boost to my confidence.” Tola “After the course I could see where we were going wrong. We did not have a plan in place which would have listed the activities that needed to be undertaken and products that need to be produced to meet the deadline. We had taken dates out of the blue and published them as deadlines without much thought about complexity and the risk of achieving them..” Bolaji “Although I am not doing a project manager job right now, it was great to understand what's involved and where I fit into the projects that my boss is responsible for.” Chidima "I hadn't realised how flexible PRINCE2 is, and that’s its OK for smaller projects. People had told me it was bureaucratic but I think it's straightforward.“
