7 principles: (Rules to follow on everything)

  • Ensure Continued Business Justification (Usually a Costs/Benefits analysis that must be maintained, checked and confirmed regularly)
  • Learn from experience (Identifying and sharing lessons across projects both internal and external with other projects)
  • Defined roles and responsibilities (Who will contribute what to the project? Knowing what will be expected of each role around the project)
  • Manage by stages (Control points throughout the project help to decide if the project should continue with funding or stop. Often linked up to milestones and key points)
  • Manage by exception (This works when Tolerance levels are set and then if something threatens a level, something must be done eg. An issue to be raised on Time Tolerance)
  • Focus on products (Ensure the products to be made have quality criteria so the customer gets what they want and then its also easier to approve in quality approval)
  • Tailor to suit the project environment (Tailor PRINCE2 to size, risk etc … Every project is tailored, often by the Project Manager and then Approved by the Project Board.)

7 Practices: (Specialist chapters in the book)

  • Business case (Why?)
  • Organizing (Who?)
  • Quality (What?)
  • Plans (How? How much? When?)
  • Risk (What if…?)
  • Issues (WTF?! What now?)
  • Progress (Where are we? Where are we going? Should we carry on?)

7 Processes: (Groups of activities to do at that time in the project)

  • Starting up a project (Pre-project)
  • Directing a project (For the Project Board)
  • Initiating a project (For initiation)
  • Managing a stage boundary (To plan for next stages)
  • Controlling a stage (For assigning work and dealing with everyday things)
  • Managing product delivery (Formal process to handover work)
  • Closing a project (To wrap up the project)
