How to explain PRINCE2 in less than one minute

posted Dec 21, 2015, 10:01 AM by Frank Turley   [ updated Dec 21, 2015, 10:02 AM ]

This short video provides a very simple overview of PRINCE2 and can help to explain PRINCE2 in during an Interview, Meeting, Workshop, etc...

The general idea it to be able to go to a white board and draw a simple diagram, then show where the followings step happen and why:

- Startup and the objective to this process
- Planing and it mains deliverables
- What happens in the stages
- When are the Project Products created
- How the Project Board controls the project

As you can see all of this can be explain in just one minute, so it will be easy for your audience to get an understanding of PRINCE2 and they don't need to see PRINCE2 as a monster process.

Introducing MoP

Individuals and organizations are much more cautious with their investments these days. Can we afford this? Can we take the risk? Should we be doing this? 
Are all questions being asked of change initiatives (projects and programmes)? As such, the days of projects being funded without having a clear understanding of the full costs, benefits and risk are well and truly over, and rightly so!
The time has come for Management of  Portfolios (MoP). MoP helps organizations answer a fundamental question

Get Connected: The Power of Networking
by Anna Hedrzak

...Networks and personal connections are indispensable in our lives. The famous saying ‘It’s not what you know but who you know’ is a truism.

Very likely you have found at least one job, advanced in your career or even met that special person in your life as a result of people you know. And if this is not true of you, then you really need to start networking! Moreover, in some cultures, it is only possible to 'arrange' government services, jobs and much more as a result of your ability to influence the right people by means of personal connections. It's no wonder that successful people are often described as ‘well networked’!

ITIL & PRINCE2 Case Study

posted Aug 9, 2010, 2:14 AM by prince2ug prince2ug   [ updated Dec 20, 2015, 4:11 PM by Arantza Latronico ]

This is an excellent case study by Noel Scott. 

Title:  Case Study: Using ITIL® and Prince2™ Together
Date:  August 2010   
See link:   


This Case Study explains how using ITIL and PRINCE2 helped successfully set up an offshore service desk. It showcases how following ITIL procedures and running the project with the PRINCE2 method enabled the project's goals to be achieved.

The overall aim of the project was to ensure that the service desk would expand the existing capacity, be online before the launch of the new IT product and meet the clients expectations.

"ITIL and PRINCE2 naturally and neatly interlocked together. ITIL worked well in defining the best practice targets and PRINCE2 provided the best practice route. It was clear that combining the two together provided greater benefits."
