Improving Project Performance using PRINCE2 Maturity Model
- Office of Government Commerce (OGC)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
PRINCE2 is cited as the most widely used project management method worldwide. But, while the PRINCE2 manual describes how to manage a single project it does not include any guidance on how to embed PRINCE2 into an organisation.
Such guidance is now available: this publication describes the organisational processes and practices required for the effective implementation of PRINCE2 as an organisational standard. It includes guidance on assigning ownership, tailoring the method, training, integrating PRINCE2 with other management systems and establishing quality assurance mechanisms to gain a continuous improvement capability.
In reading 'Improving Project Performance using the PRINCE2 Maturity Model' you will discover how organisations can gain full value from the PRINCE2 Method. It contains practical advice on using the OGC's PRINCE2 Maturity Model (P2MM) and shows how P2MM can be used.
