Prince 2 Project Management Methodology

This post explains the Prince 2 Project Management Methodology and points you to where you can download related templates and documentation.

According to the official Prince 2 web site: -

PRINCE, which stands for Projects in Controlled Environments, is a project management method covering the organisation, management and control of projects. PRINCE was first developed by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) now part of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) in 1989 as a UK Government standard for IT project management.

Since its introduction, PRINCE has become widely used in both the public and private sectors and is now the UK’s de facto standard for project management. Although PRINCE was originally developed for the needs of IT projects, the method has also been used on many non-IT projects. The latest version of the method, PRINCE2, is designed to incorporate the requirements of existing users and to enhance the method towards a generic, best practice approach for the management of all types of projects.

This methodology seems to be fairly popular in the UK and I’m seriously thinking of becoming a Prince 2 practitioner if I get the chance to get sent on some training. You can also download some useful case studies and templates from the official site (personally I think the Oracle AIM ones are much better) as well as this other Prince 2 site (for this site, you will have to perform free registration before you can download).

  1. Dear Richard,
    you said “personally I think the Oracle AIM ones are much better”

    Would you please explain your reasons. How one can judge an implementation methodology. Regarding AIM Is there any source to learn it.

    thank you.

  2. You can tell immediately when looking at the templates that the Oracle ones are better. My reasoning is that the Oracle templates have a better layout and have various macros that allow you make mass changes to the documents. If you download and install the AIM methodology you will find the templates in the following directory c:\method\OM30\AIM30FND\Wordlib. You can find out more about the methodology and how to download it at this post on the blog.
