Projects are the means by which change is introduced. PRINCE2® is increasingly recognized as the most widely used project management method worldwide. The PRINCE2 framework of processes and guidance has been proven over many years to be an effective solution to the most common causes of project failure. Designed from the outset to be flexible and generic, the method can be applied and tailored to projects of any type or scale. The importance of effective senior management in projects has been demonstrated repeatedly as one of the key contributing factors in achieving success. This guide is specifically aimed at helping project board members to direct project work efficiently, consistently and, above all, successfully. This is aligned with the latest edition of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 which reinforces the principles that underpin successful project management, and provides guidance on how to apply those principles to any type of project.
