PRINCE2 (PRojects In Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method for providing effective governance and controls throughout the project lifecycle to ensure the realization of benefits, regular monitoring, and evidence-based decision making.
The application of the PRINCE2 method includes project gating (stage gating), development of a business case and benefits realization strategy, the capture and documentation of lessons learned, active leadership and timely direction, maintenance of effective relationships with project stakeholders, specific roles and responsibilities, delegation of authorities to the project manager, and scalability or tailoring commensurate with the needs of the organization and the risk and complexity of the project.
This one-day workshop will enable participants to gain sufficient knowledge and understanding of PRINCE2 to enable them to make informed decisions about adopting it for their organizations.
