Description

A full 1 hour detailed overview of PRINCE2 from Mandate to Closure. Discusses the relevance of activities, roles, docs and actions as we go. Enough to be really prepared for the course, should you wish to attend one, and certainly to understand the Why, What and How of the approach and that it works... when used properly
For more details on some of the outputs, (business case), techniques and actions please go to the Course Platform where you will find a series of videos on these subjects -
There are some introduction videos on the channel that will give you an overview of what there is on the platform.

The video looks at getting the project started with the activities and any documents recommended and take you up to the point at the end of Initiating a Project and being ready (hopefully) to kick the deliver part of the project off in earnest. Run the plan!

The message is that we need to start with a broad yet formal understanding of the "Why, What and How" of the project in "Starting Up a Project" and build on the that with more detail through "Initiating a Project". At the end of "Starting Up a Project" the next step is to go to "Directing a Project" (which is where the Project Board function for direction and decision) to "Request Initiate a Project" and kicks off this Process. Note that even though the Project Executive is on board from Starting Up a Project, it is only when "Starting Up a Project" is complete and the Project Brief is ready along with the Initiating Stage Plan, does "Directing a Project" start.

"Step at a time" - "Detail builds with each step" so we can keep in control and by that I mean from a "Governance" perspective, so we do NOT have a "run-away train". In "Initiating a Project" we look at Planning as this is really the key activity here. We need to understand the products (product breakdown) so then we can prioritize, estimate and then Plan. This helps us update all the project documents we started in "Starting Up a Project" in order to provide the business with the best information they need to make an "informed decision" as to whether the project is worth the investment or not. The underlying point here is to understand and agree the project "Scope"!

Should we get the "Green Light" at the end of "Initiating a Project" we then move into the "Delivery" part, "Controlling a Stage" and "Managing Product Delivery".

Now for the product build part, there are some separate videos that that you through "Scrum" and how the core of the "Product Deliver" approach, Iterative Development, and using "Timeboxes" (Sprints in Scrum) are used to control ID. The session also explains how to use this approach in a project as there needs to be some changes! We also look at handling Risk and Issues, with escalation and the "Exception" route.

Finally, the video takes you through a recap of the previous videos and then leads into "Closing a Project", with a look a both aspect, normal and premature closure.

Please note: this is not a course in itself, its a "walkthrough" to provide you with a good and reasonably detailed understanding of the approach.

PRINCE2 is a guidance and a framework to guide you through the project.

This series of videos takes you through the complete PRINCE2 Lifecycle including an overview of the activities which provides a good grounding in understanding this method, or a refresher if you are already accredited.Welcome to this chapter where you will find three videos (well one Video in three parts) that take you through the PRINCE2 methodology with a reasonable amount of detail.


The first video, V01a, looks at getting the project started with the activities and any documents recommended and take you up to the point at the end of Initiating a Project and being ready (hopefully) to kick the deliver part of the project off in earnest. Run the plan!

The message is that we need to start with a broad yet formal understanding of the "Why, What and How" of the project in "Starting Up a Project" and build on the that with more detail through "Initiating a Project".

Note that even though the Project Executive is on board from Starting Up a Project, it is only when "Starting Up a Project" is complete and the Project Brief is ready along with the Initiating Stage Plan, does "Directing a Project" start.

Running the Project - Developing/Building the Solution
22:05

The last video, V01c, takes you through a recap of the previous videos and then leads into"Closing a Project", with a look a both aspect, normal and premature closure.

Hopefully, in many cases, the project will reach the end naturally, so the first part of this lecutre describes the route there and what happens in this situation.

The second part looks at the case when the project is closed "prematurely", which can be for many reasons.

This by no means suggests the project failed. It was in many was a success. The business attempted to change/add/resolve something and in the process realised it was not going to work. Or there was a change of strategy, run out of money... many reasons.However, the project was (hopefully) being run successfully for the right decision to have been made!
