    • What is PRINCE2?  Stands for Projects In Controlled Environments  Structured method for effective project  It is a de facto standard used extensively by the UK Government and is widely recognised and used in the private sector.  PRINCE2 was established in 1989 by CCTA (the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency). CCTA is now called OGC – office of govt commerce.  Originally based on PROMPT, which has been superseded.  Widely adopted by various government and top organizations across the world.  A consistent, well structured and coherent project management methodology.  Structured Project Management methodology  Best Practice  Generic: can be applied to all kind of projects“Most companies have good people; the companies that win in the long term have the best practices.’’ – PeterDrucker.

    • Who uses PRINCE2 ®? • Governments – UK, Australia, Netherlands, Denmark, Canada – Uganda (Central Bank of Uganda), National Bank of Rwanda, Central Bank of Nigeria, NMB Tanzania • Private Sector – Sun Microsystems, DHL, BAT, Barclays, Vodafone, Shell, Unilever – Microsoft, HP, IBM, British Airways, Virgin, Safaricom • International Organizations – United Nations and its agencies e.g. UNDP – ILO – World Bank“Most companies have good people; the companies that win in the long term have the best practices.’’ – PeterDrucker.
    • WHY USE PROJECT MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGY Project failures are all too common - some make the headlines, the vast majority are quickly forgotten. The reasons for failure are wide and varied. Lack of co-ordination of resources and activities Lack of communication with interested parties, leading to products being delivered which are not what the Customer wanted Poor estimation of duration and costs, leading to projects taking more time and costing more money than expected Insufficient measurables Inadequate planning of resources, activities, and scheduling Lack of control over progress so that projects do not reveal their exact status until too late Lack of quality“Most companies have good people; the companies that win in the long term have the best practices.’’ – PeterDrucker.
    • Continued• Without a project management method, those who commission a project, those who manage it and those who work on it will have different ideas about how things should be organised and when the different aspects of the project will be completed.• No clarity on responsibility, authority and accountability in projects• Without a project management method, projects are rarely completed on time and within acceptable cost - this is especially true of large projects.• A good project management method will guide the project through a controlled, well-managed, visible set of activities to achieve the desired results.“Most companies have good people; the companies that win in the long term have the best practices.’’ – PeterDrucker.
    • Why Some Projects Fail? Lack of: – Properly defined Business Case – Co-ordination - resources & activities – Proper Communication – Good Estimating - of cost & time – Sufficient measurables – Proper Planning – Sensible and pragmatic Control – Quality Control“Most companies have good people; the companies that win in the long term have the best practices.’’ – PeterDrucker.
