Issue 2 of Project Management with PRINCE2®
Did you create a list of elements common in successful projects? The idea is that we might be able to increase chances of success by having those elements reconstructed in our projects.
PRINCE2 recognizes seven of them: the seven core principles of PRINCE2.
Following the principles does not guarantee your success, but failing to adopt them increases chances of failure. So, it’s really important to understand them all and follow them in ALL our projects. We will talk about the seven core principles in the following seven days, one at a time.
To start this, think about this basic question: why are you doing the project?
Do you have a proper answer to this question in your projects? Or are you… just doing the projects because that’s what you do?
My next question is, what difference does it make to understand the reason we are doing the project?
We’ll talk about it tomorrow.
