  3. 3. OVERVIEW OF PRINCE 2 Best practices based on thousands of succeeding projectsOfficial OGC definition of PRINCE2“PRINCE2 is a generic, tailorable, simple to follow project Business Valuemanagement method. It covers how to organise, manage and Drivencontrol your projects. It is aimed at enabling you to continuously Managed bysuccessfully deliver the right products, on time and within stagesbudget. As a Project manager you can apply the principles ofPRINCE2 and the associated training to any type of project. Itwill help you to manage risk, control quality and change Learning fromeffectively, as well as make the most of challenging situations experience No guaranteeand opportunities that arise within a project. to succeed, but fails quicker• A PRINCE2 project has the following characteristics: • Continued business justification • Learning from experience Defined roles and • Defined roles and responsibilities Responsability • Managed by stages Generic and no tool • Managed by exception recommendation • Focuses on products and their qualityTailored to suit the particular product environment Focused on product /PRINCE2 does not cover all aspects of project Qualitymanagement. Areas such as leadership and peoplemanagement skills, detailed coverage of project management Managed bytools and techniques are well covered by other existing and tolerancesproven methods and are therefore excluded from PRINCE2.” © 2011 Vincent THAVONEKHAM, www.Thavo.com.

  4. 4. PRINCE 2 AND TFS 2010 Nikolaj Raahauge, PRINCE2 Practitioner and Approved Trainer (7 July 2009):  “Id very much like to point out that tailoring PRINCE2 to the individual project and organizational environment is far more important than going off the bureaucratic cliff and implementing PRINCE2 full scale”  “in the case of Software Development projects, this is where SCRUM, XP or what not comes in” Martin van Borselaer, PRINCE2 Coach and Senior Project Manager, (White paper on PRINCE 2):  “The new PRINCE2 2009 manual states explicitly that templates other than the official PRINCE2 ones can be used for reporting, as long as you report what is important to your customer. It is a good idea to use specific Scrum information like release planning based on Velocity and Product Backlog, Lessons Learned based on Sprint Retrospectives”  “Within PRINCE2 the delivery process is a black box, (since it) is all about managing the project‟s process. The Scrum process is all about delivery. Fast and effective delivery is key.”  “This makes Scrum a natural fit to the PRINCE2 „Managing Product Delivery‟ process”© 2011 Vincent THAVONEKHAM, www.Thavo.com.

  5. 5. AGILITY IN PRINCE2 AND SCRUM (1/2) Usually people do not notice the large amount of similarities between PRINCE2 and SCRUM. Rather than presenting them all in detail, here are some few examples:  BY DEFINITION  PRINCE2 and SCRUM are mature and based on practical feed backs of thousands of successful project worldwide,  Neither PRINCE2 nor SCRUM could be used alone, they have to be blended to other technics,  Neither PRINCE2 nor SCRUM should be fully used “from the book”, they have to be adapted to the company,  CONTROL  [PRINCE2] Stage and decision boundaries  [SCRUM] Sprint iteration of fixed length and Spring Review  [PRINCE2] Driven by the Business needs  [SCRUM] Driven by User Story and prioritized by Business values  Shall we carry on ?  [PRINCE2] End Stage Assessment  [SCRUM] Sprint iteration review  Regular reports :  [PRINCE2] highlight reports {by Project manager} [SCRUM] Daily stand up meeting {by the team + Scrum Master}© 2011 Vincent THAVONEKHAM, www.Thavo.com.

  6. 6. AGILITY IN PRINCE2 AND SCRUM (2/2)  TECHNIQUES  Assumes that changes will occur (detailed and big design up-front cannot predict all)  [PRINCE2] Change Control  [SCRUM] Reprioritizing User Story before the start of a sprint, and reprioritizing technical tasks during a sprint  Decompose user‟s needs to visualize the problem and feeds that back to the users :  [PRINCE2] Product Break down structure [SCRUM] Epic (=Big User story) > sub-User stories > related tasks > related sub-tasks  PLANS  Quality boundaries : Agreed and strict tolerance at many levels  [PRINCE2] Project {program management}, stage {project board} and product {project manager} [SCRUM] “Definition Of Done” : Program {program management}, End of sprint iteration {project board}, User Story {Product Owner}, Tasks {Team / Scrum Master}© 2011 Vincent THAVONEKHAM, www.Thavo.com. Please use / modify freely this presentation ONLY if you keep this line of text. Course Version 4.1.0
  7. 7. WHICH TOOL FITS PRINCE2 ? FAQ from http://www.prince2.com  “PRINCE2 makes no recommendation on which tools you should use to assist you manage your projects but it does recognise that such tools are widely used. PRINCE2 will sit quite happily alongside a paper- based planning system or any other tool which you find to be effective in your environment”  Based on “Work Items”, a solution to implement PRINCE2 could be TFS 2010. Indeed, it is flexible enough to handle the entire Application Life Cycle Management (ALM) of two opposite project process templates :  A lightweight project process template (Scrum, Agile),  A heavy weight project process template (CMMI, Sogeti TMAP process template certified, …)© 2011 Vincent THAVONEKHAM, www.Thavo.com.
