    THE BEST TEMPLATE FOR YOUR PROJECTS!
    The Process Flow Diagram is a key document for all project managers that want to run a project following the recommended steps and processes. The PRINCE2 Process Flow Diagram is a graphical ‘at a glance‘ representation of all the PRINCE2 processes and how they fit together and it shows all the processes involved in running a PRINCE2 project from start to finish.

    – 7 Processes forming the project management
    – 7 Principles forming the basis of good method of managing projects
    – 7 Themes, knowledge areas which support specific key areas of project management
    PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environment) is a structured method for the effective and efficient management of projects. It is a generic, best-practice approach for the management of all types of projects and it has become the de facto standard for organising, managing and controlling projects globally.

    The goal of this white paper from Axelos is to introduce PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile to people working in agile environments, by answering questions like “Can PRINCE2 work with an Agile delivery mechanism?” and “Even knowing that PRINCE2 can work with an agile delivery model, why should I want to know more about this? What are the benefits of the integration?”. One of the challenges that we face when we discuss PRINCE2 in any context is the number of myths and misconceptions that abound about the model. Many think they know what it is and how it works.  Yet the reality is often very different. Some of the myths about PRINCE2 are around PRINCE2 being “top-heavy”, waterfall based, focuses on command and control etc… While PRINCE2 in fact shows that is a tailored framework, it makes no mention to command and control, and no mention to waterfall, and it has many mentions of small and light management relative to the size job.

    The 2017 version of PRINCE2, while keeping the essentials of the method unchanged, focuses on the principle of TAILORING, underlining how PRINCE2 should be tailored for a project’s particular circumstances. The renewed emphasis on this principle is proven by a completely new chapter focusing on “Tailoring and adopting PRINCE2”. In this chapter the authors show how PRINCE2 can and MUST be tailored to suit specific situations. To that end, they add a lot of useful tips on what can be tailored and how. We asked two of our Project Management expert as well as PRINCE2 trainer and consultants to answer the question “How to use PRINCE2 on a small-scale project?” by giving examples and concrete Best Practices to follow. This document includes 2 articles: “An example of PRINCE2 Tailoring: a Trainer’s Wedding!” By Fabio Savarino and “Understand Your Needs and Choose the Proper Approach” By Armel Quirino. ENJOY YOUR READING!

    In this white paper, our trainer and expert Niels Van Bemmelen, explains the importance of Tailoring within PRINCE2 2017, focusing on Tailoring from the organization’s standard. “Tailoring is adapting a method or process to suit the situation in which it will be used.” (PRINCE2 manual). In this case, tailoring the PRINCE2 method to adapt it to the situation where it will be used. In response to this definition, I have often heard the question “And why do we need to tailor PRINCE2? Isn’t it a universal project management method that can be used for all kinds of projects?” Now, that universal aspect of PRINCE2 is exactly what makes that PRINCE2 can be applied to any project.
