PRINCE2 is scalable according to individual project need, although personal experience shows we see a business case, risk logs etc. on every project and the rest vary according to need.
This scalability provides flexibility but is open to abuse where small projects are equipped with 2 dozen PRINCE2 documents and larger projects have far less, down to the project manager's preference.
I'm actually looking into how project manager's decide on which PRINCE2 products/documents to use in my organisation as part of a qualification I'm doing. If anyone could recommend any good sources of info I'd be much obliged!
With respect, Craig and Prince.
Thank you for opening up a question which would seem quite important for PMs around the world to know.
As you can see, different businesses and different sizes of projects (and also companies) requires different sets of PRINCE2 documents as you know.
It's true when Craig said that "This scalability provides flexibility but is open to abuse where small projects are equipped with 2 dozen PRINCE2 documents and larger projects have far less, down to the project manager's preference."
There is one but the concern of a PRINCE2 applicant who asked me which one to use best in diverse situations. While I'd say it's best to refer to the business case, it's also good to remember that first few steps has to be taken first. Lounging around the middle/end part of the project timeline (if you have a historical case study to refer, that'll be great) would not only be extrinsic to your findings but will confuse a PM much further than he/she could handle.
While PRINCE2 originally was IT-specific, there is no say to that other business cannot adapt to it, too. This is a little off topic, sorry.
I'd suggest you understand the first 8 core elements of PRINCE2 (albeit PMBOK for the moment), then re-structure your findings into corporate goals, objectives and so forth.
Well, I'm watching as to implement PRINCE2 Principles into the F&B industry. Think it'll work? =)
