Project Management with PRINCE2 Principles


Many large organisations in the UK manage projects to a certain standard of quality and reduced risk.  Their programmes are typically measured in terms of financial benefits, usually at the expense of unintentionally developing an organisation which is defined byFacebook Support pressure.  Project managers have been perceived as a bad breed of people, who are tough and have no empathy for the feelings and ideas of their fellow man.  However project management principles have a number of advantages as I will explain below. As on a prince 2 Training Course London.

In my work, as a Project Management Professional and as an experienced project manager, I have observed many common errors and oversights made by managers and, as a consequence, positive outcomes are likely to be higher, but still not delivered on.

Why ( pores ) do you want to manage a project?  For the same reason that we decide to go to University, to get a qualification, qualification or qualification!  The knowledge, experience and skill which the project manager gets are skills and the organisation gets a benefit.  But these skills and experience do not automatically translate into reputation as a skilled, team player.  For many organisations, managers get into their position as a result of good skills and experience but no real experience in project management.  In these organisations any initiative from a project perspective is met with suspicion.

Taking the time to get the “what” right, what you really want to do and where and when you want to do it in the very early on, as part of your project planning, will enable you to develop your own skills as a project manager. ┬áBecoming a better project manager will give you better skills and experience, which in turn will typically offer good career opportunities in the future.

So, what compels an organisation to employ a project manager?

Preferred; a field-tested, incubated, simplified and rigorous approach to doing things rather than following a burden shopping list of questionable approaches to performance. The expertise would include the ability to understand what the organisation needs and to plan & achieve it accordingly and for it to be of the quality enables us to deliver the enhanced business value that i.e.  increased customer retention’ and “top line”.   Equipped with these essential skills, you are in a better position thus making project life and work, like a game of card.  It will be faster, more successful!

Possibly it’s their need to complete an Excel template every time, or will sit for an entire project with their feet- Alliance logo on their copy machine?

Maybe they want to put a slide on their desktop presentations stating why they need 10 defined list of objectives and 5 action points by the end of the project?

This type of project manager is sometimes a necessary evil, as he/she has to complete the project, but has no aspirations to do so.  They do it, take the positive output, and then move on when the project ends.  Even if they modify it, after the project, they will invariably start the new one with no idea on the outcome, they may even have shown that the project was a failure and became arrogant to the point that the authority of the organisation was eroded, so they will always go back to what was easy and reliable, and usually without ever achieving what was intended for the organisation, but they will get a crown of recognition for their effort and skill!

Another necessary evil to become a project manager.  This type is often more important for preventing a project from failing than anything else.  This type agrees to implement a project to completion, which created more than they ever anticipated.  They are at risk!

Short-term project managers need to deliver the benefit, during the duration of the project.  Basically they get what is being delivered.  The short-term project board spends time in meetings, looking at charts, and statistics showing current arrangement, materials, lead-times, etc.

Working with the project and enthusiasm of the project team, the project board must ensure that they function as a cohesive unit!

For a project to achieve the anticipated return and the stated benefits planned, they must provide good project management skills.  Project managers who do not possess these skills will always get frustrated and leave the organisation!

For a project to be successful, the organisation has to have their needs satisfied by the work and effort, which has been put into the project.  Very little will be achieved if the organisation does not have goods or services to deliver; the alternatives to this themselves only begin, where to get them and where to make more!

Your overall performance will show at the end of the project, for your cost and time an analysis on how well you accomplished the target, what was possible, what was not and what needs to change on the next one!
