Product description

This publication provides a universally applicable project management method - the principles, processes and techniques that enable individuals and organisations to successfully deliver their projects within time, cost and quality constraints. "Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2[trademark]" forms part of a pair of publications that are the result of the PRINCE2: 2009 Project to update the PRINCE2 guidance. Its companion is "Directing Successful Projects with PRINCE2[trademark]". The title has been designed to be a role specific handbook for Project Managers, Team Managers and Project Support. The new 2009 edition: explains the principles that underpin PRINCE2; describes the PRINCE2 processes in their entirety and 'Key Themes' of project management, specific to PRINCE2, that are required for the processes to be effective; cross-references techniques that may be applied; also explains how to tailor the method; and, provides context of when and how to use PRINCE2 for different project environments (e.g. standalone or as part of a programme). Like the 2005 guidance, the book contains chapters on Starting Up a Project, Directing a Project, Initiating a Project, Controlling a Stage, Managing Product Delivery, Managing Stage Boundary and Closing a Project. In addition, the guidance also looks at the wider role of the Project Manager, including: soft skills of the project manager; leading and managing; stakeholder engagement and communication planning; organisational change management; PRINCE2 in different types of organisation and cultures; and, training needs for project teams. This title includes real world examples and illustrations in each chapter. It contains extensive appendices on the following topics: Product Descriptions; Governance; Role Definitions - Responsibilities and typical competencies by role; Product Based Planning example; and, Health Check. It also contains a list of further information and glossary - definition of acronyms and terms used.
