Overview

Struggling to apply the principles of PRINCE2™ to make the method work in practice? Need guidance on adapting the process depending on context and scaling for smaller projects?

Revised and updated throughout to match the details and requirements of the 2009 PRINCE2 manual, PRINCE2™: A Practical Handbook, 3rd edition is the solution—a readable, practical reference with real life examples and case studies, links between related components and processes, and clear guidance on how to fine-tune the method to suit situation and size.

Whether you are looking to further your reading in preparation for the PRINCE2 examinations, keep your knowledge and skills up to date to maintain registered status or apply the theory of PRINCE2 to everyday project work after certification, PRINCE2™: A Practical Handbook is an affordable alternative to expensive training and an indispensable addition to your project management bookshelf.

Author Colin Bentley has spent the last 40 years managing projects, large and small, across the world. He has worked with PRINCE2, PRINCE and its predecessor, PROMPT II, since the 1970s and was one of the team that brought PROMPT II to the marketplace. As the main author of the original PRINCE2 manual, a former Chief Examiner in PRINCE2 for the Association for Project Management Group (APMG) and Lead Reviewer for the 2009 PRINCE2 manual, he is the perfect guide to real-world application of PRINCE2 beyond the classroom theory for project management success.

Audience: IT Managers, Project Managers, and Consultants who need to become familiar with the PRINCE method of project management, whether implementing and using it or participating in a project being managed according to PRINCE 2 guidelines.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall this is a solid book about PRINCE2 with practical advice about how to use the method for large projects or tailor it for small projects. This is a good step beyond an introduction without any attempt to be a study guide. In doing so, the author has written something all students of project management should read before taking a PRINCE2 exam."

Carol Long, MCQI CQP, Qualityworld (QW) magazine
